Teacher well-being

A report on stress and well-being amongst lower secondary school teachers in the EU highlights: 

  • close to 50% of teachers experience stress in their work (variation in EU Member States ranges from 90% to 20%)
  • key sources of stress: admin work, excessive marking, classroom management, heavy teaching load, and addressing parental concerns
  • 22% to 24% of teachers reported that stress has a negative impact on their physical and mental health
  • increasing teacher well-being: opportunities for collegiality and collaborative work, increasing teacher autonomy and meaningful professional learning opportunities.
