Teacher Empowerment with Kathryn Grice

Nov 30, 2020 | Podcast

“The greatest success of the project has come from seeing teachers invest in themselves, recognise their worth and choose more of the life that they wish to live. Teachers: the possibilities are endless.”

Kathryn Grice was a secondary English Teacher for ten years, and Head of Department.

She left full time teaching in 2016 and founded the Teacher Empowerment Project.

In this empowering podcast, Kathryn shares:

  • The advice she would give teachers who are considering leaving the profession;
  • Why she felt like a failure when she left full time teaching to raise her young sons;
  • The huge benefits of incorporating flexible working in schools (options and opportunities);
  • Helping stem the huge number of people leaving the profession, particularly women in their 30’s juggling and struggling with elderly parents and young families;
  • The importance of giving ourselves time and space (and how to do it);
  • Why are high performing females not getting to the top of the profession?
  • And much more!

The Teacher Empowerment Project platform signposts CPD and communities, wellbeing advice, support and new career opportunities.
