On Thursday, 21 October 2021 the EWC will launch findings from the biggest ever survey of the education workforce in Wales at a special policy briefing.
During the virtual event, we’ll share the findings of the survey, which we conducted in spring 2021 in partnership with the Welsh Government, trade unions and other key partners. We’ll look at the things that matter most to our registrants across all sectors (schools, further education, work based learning and youth work) including workload, well-being, professional learning, and the impact of COVID-19.
Set against a backdrop of significant change and uncertainty across the education sector both before and during the pandemic, the event will share insights collected from over 10,000 registrants across Wales.
This policy briefing will give policy makers, stakeholders, registrants and researchers the chance to hear our interpretation of findings from the survey. They'll also find out about emerging themes and trends and explore how these results could influence future education policy in Wales.
EWC Chief Executive, Hayden Llewellyn said:
“This event will be a valuable opportunity for all involved in education to take stock and consider some of the key issues the workforce deal with on a daily basis.
The results of the national workforce survey represent the views of over 10,000 education practitioners in Wales. They are an important call to action for policy makers to take those views into account as we continue to implement major education reform and work towards a strong recovery from the pandemic.”
The full results of the survey will be published on 7 October 2021.
