This week educators will be discussing the issue of improving staff morale in Further Education…A very important issue but no easy task!!
With so many stakeholders with different agendas, needs & perspectives it can feel as if we’re being torn in all different directions.
There may be a tendency to blame SMT or others within the college but they may be limited in influencing some stakerholders or the decisions that are made to the detriment to students & staff.
So when assessing any improvements to staff morale it’s perhaps important to first discuss the areas that can and cannot be improved within the 4 walls of the college.
In a busy FE College it may be difficult to find the time to consider the culture we are actively encouraging, thereby allowing a passive culture to develop. But this is something that a number of successful companies work very hard to cultivate.
Before this week's #ukfechat you may want to check out this report (Esp Section 2) – Culture in Further Education.
