Join Timewise and Talent Architects, the flexible working experts, and their panellists in a series of webinars, Q&As and drop-in clinics to learn more about a proactive, whole-school approach, starting in October:

Headteachers webinar

Commencing a new academic year, school leaders might welcome a ‘return to normal’, but pre-covid issues around staff recruitment and retention still exist, and there is now a keener focus on wellbeing than before. Creating scope for flexible and part-time working is possible in all roles in a school and can help promote a better work-life balance in the education sector.

Date: Monday 5 October

Time: 10-11.30am

School business professionals/HR webinar

The road to a flexible and agile workforce can be a challenging one, especially in schools. While other employers talk of remote and hybrid working post pandemic, schools still lag other sectors when it comes to part time (let alone other forms of flexible working). But creating more scope for flexibility is possible in all roles in a school, giving people a better work-life balance and addressing the recruitment and retention issues in the sector.
