In this workshop we will look first of all at what it is that motivates teachers, and how this relates to the motivations of others in other professions. What can teachers do to re-energise themselves and what can managers do to help them? Subsequently we will focus on professional development – discussing ideas for teachers to take charge of their own PD and lead from the staffroom, and how managers can facilitate this – making the space for teachers to feel empowered and inspired.
