Aylesbury UTC (@AylesburyUTC) is leading the way in teacher well-being with the introduction of a brand new flexible working scheme. Recognising the ever-changing needs of educators, the UTC will now offer teaching staff the opportunity to work from home one day a week. This innovative program aims to not only improve work/life balance but also attract and retain high-quality staff within the Aylesbury area.

“We understand the importance of creating a positive work-life balance for our staff,” said Joe Dunckley, Principal of Aylesbury UTC. “This new scheme, supported by the Merchant Taylor’s Oxfordshire Academy Trust’s commitment to excellence in education, is designed to empower our teachers and give them the flexibility they need to thrive both inside and outside the classroom.”

The remote working program will allow teachers to dedicate one day a week to lesson planning, marking, and other administrative tasks from the comfort of their own homes. This flexibility is expected to reduce stress levels and offer teachers valuable time for personal commitments.

Aylesbury UTC believes this scheme will position them at the forefront of attracting and retaining top teaching talent. By demonstrating a commitment to staff wellbeing, the UTC hopes to create a more attractive working environment for educators across the region.

The new program comes at a time of national teacher shortages. By offering a unique and modern approach to work-life balance, Aylesbury UTC is setting a positive example for other schools in the area. The success of this program will be closely monitored, with the potential to expand remote working opportunities in the future.
