The event, hosted by Nottingham Education Improvement Board, will focus on good practice to help reduce the excessive workloads of education staff.
Dr Bousted said: “I am delighted to be speaking in Nottingham at the School Workload Conference.
“In a recent survey, initial findings have found that National Education Union teacher members feel that excessive workload is blighting their lives and driving them from the profession.
“Schools are finding it increasingly difficult to recruit and retain teachers, and school leaders tell us that teacher shortages are a threat to school standards. That is why this conference, which focuses on practical and workable solutions to teacher workload, is so important.”
The National Education Union has campaigned tirelessly for change, at a national level, putting pressure on the Government to reduce workload. Further information on the campaign can be found here.
