A third of teachers intend to quit in the next five years

By Wesleyan

A YouGov survey has found a third of all teachers plan to leave the profession in the next five years.

The survey results claim that teachers are being driven out by excessive workloads and unreasonable managers.

The survey of 796 teachers, ranging from those who are newly qualified to those with decades of experience, was conducted on behalf of the Teacher Support Network and found that 34% of all teachers plan to leave the profession by 2020. A further 22% per cent intend to quit their jobs within the next six to 20 years, while only 10% plan to remain in teaching for more than 20 years

Reasons given for wanting to leave the profession include excessive workloads, pay and pensions, student behaviours and the rapid pace of change across the professional.
