“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.
