TALIS 2018 and Staff Retention in Schools

Last week, the OECD released results from its latest Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS). This was the third time the OECD surveyed teachers and school principals worldwide to gather information on key aspects of the teaching profession and what schools and policy makers can do to strengthen it.

In England, 2376 lower secondary teachers and 157 principals completed the TALIS 2018 questionnaire. We were very eager to read the initial findings as just last month, Edurio published the first findings from our own Staff Wellbeing and Working Conditions Survey that involved more than 10,000 school staff in 322 schools and 23 multi-academy trusts across England.

Kādu sadarbību ar vecākiem vēlamies savā skolā, savā pašvaldībā?

Šobrīd jau vairāk nekā 600 skolotāji un 2400 vecāki ir atbildējuši uz Edurio aptaujas jautājumiem par skolas sadarbību ar vecākiem un rezultātos ir novērojamas 2 būtiskas tendences. Pirmkārt, par savstarpējo sadarbību skolotāji vairāk uzsver klātienes tikšanās reizes, bet vecāki - ikdienas komunikāciju, kas, lielākoties ir elektroniska, kā arī sadarbību ar klašu audzinātājiem. Otrkārt, abu iesaistīto pušu atbildes parāda, ka ir jomas, par kurām nav skaidra savstarpējā vienošanās par atbildībām - vecāki norāda, ka tā ir skolotāju atbildība, skolotāji - ka vecāku. Par kurām atbildībām ir vislielākā atšķirība viedokļos? Kā panākt, ka starp skolēnu, vecākiem un skolu ir skaidras atbildības, jeb "spēles noteikumi"? Par to arī šis raksts.

Worksheet: Survey results analysis and communication

A resource that will help you make the most out of your survey results

When it comes to analysing survey results, it can be difficult to know where to start! Whether you are a person who notices the negatives first, or someone who only focuses on the positive, it is important to go through your survey results in a systematic way, taking into account your organisation’s specific context. Once you have made general conclusions about the results, you need to share them with others — so a key element is having a strong communication plan ready.

Stakeholder feedback at United Learning

An inclusive approach to school improvement

It’s been two years since Edurio started working with United Learning on their Learning from Learners project — a focused effort on collecting and using pupil feedback to improve schools. We value our partnership and look at United Learning as an example for others to follow — regularly using stakeholder feedback across different roles and for different purposes at every level of the trust to continuously learn and improve.

We recently had the chance to talk to the team at United Learning to learn more about how it all got started and the impact of the project so far.

Understanding teacher retention in England

Edurio is launching one of England’s largest research projects on staff retention in schools.

While there are many factors of staff retention that are out of school’s control, like economic and geographic factors, some schools seem to be much better at retaining their teachers and support staff than others. We wanted to help schools and multi-academy trusts understand what they can do to improve staff retention, which would deliver better educational outcomes and save money.
