Covering Teachers' Absence

17 Sep 2013 - 10:00am

We examined the arrangements for covering teachers’ absence in schools in partnership with Estyn - HM Inspectorate for Education and Training in Wales. Estyn’s report focuses on the impact of teachers’ absence on learners’ progress. In this report, drawing on Estyn’s findings, we seek to answer the broader question of whether learners, schools and the public purse are well served by arrangements to cover teacher absence

Our overall conclusion is that arrangements for covering teachers’ absence in Wales are not suffi ciently well managed to support learners’ progress or provide the best use of resources.
