Time Management For Teachers

iStock_000022200278SmallEffective Time Management is a key skill for every teacher at every level in every school.

Whether it’s controlling the mountains of paperwork, dealing effectively with interruptions or using email so that it is actually a help rather than a hindrance, there are many areas of Time Management that can make or break a successful teacher.

Your Time Management can be the difference between flowing and frazzled, in charge or out of control.

My Time Management For Teachers course can help you and your staff become better organised, more effective, more efficient and more productive. It will also allow you to feel more confident and relaxed about what you have to do.

What Do Teachers Say About This Course?

“It was a very successful afternoon. Yesterday there was a buzz in the air and staff constantly referred to the practical measures that they had put in place; desks were clear; conversations short; our stand-up SLT meeting was swift (we all gained fifteen minutes from one meeting); many people realized they had measles and took to filing and being more organised; we’ve all eaten many frogs; emails were brief apart from a very long winded one which came from a member of staff who felt she was a good time manager and didn’t attend. The key point of interest seems to be is that we all have the same 24 hours in a day, how effectively we use it is up to us. Barack Obama is now our role model!”

Sarah Hair, Headteacher 4th September 2015

"Time allowed for discussion. Relaxed style of presenter. His understanding of what a teacher's life is like meant he could relate to our circumstances."

L. Boyd, English Teacher & HS Leader 7th September 2015

"Fab ideas to be more organised and effective. A great boost to the start of term."

Lisa Barratt, Business Manager 7th September 2015

"I liked the interaction with participants - not just talking at us. Made me think my to do list is not that worrying"

Tess Brewster, Teacher 7th September 2015

"Following our really interesting training, I've changed my way of working - changing from having 42k emails in my inbox, to be being empty. Iain made the training really enjoyable and everyday I have to remind myself to, 'eat the frog' and get the job I least want to do, done first! Every job now fits into a different quadrant!"
