About the Webinar

Webinar Duration: 1 hour 13 minutes (approx.)

This webinar will provide headteachers, senior leaders, HR managers and governors with an insight into the challenges and opportunities of flexible working and how a whole-school approach can enhance staff recruitment and retention, and positively impact teaching and learning.

The benefits of flexible working in schools, and in particular with regard to staff recruitment and retention, are backed by research, for example in the DfE’s findings from a four-stage research project, Exploring Flexible Working Practice in Schools, updated November 2020.

In this webinar, Lindsay Patience, co-founder of Flexible Teacher Talent, teacher and SLT member, explains how schools can overcome the challenges posed by flexible working and explores its many benefits via evidence-based resources and case studies.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding the diversity of working arrangements which can be defined as flexible working, including part time, varied hours and in-year flexibility.

  • Appreciating the legal context, including schools’ duty of care towards staff and employees’ rights regarding flexible working requests.

  • Recognising the unique needs of schools as workplaces and the challenges of implementing flexible working in educational settings.

  • Understanding how flexible working can be used to enhance staff recruitment, attracting a wider and more diverse pool of candidates.

  • Appreciating how flexible working can be used to improve staff retention and career progression, and impact positively on the whole school.
