Research undertaken before the pandemic showed that the job quality of teachers in Britain had been declining in two key respects for a number of years. First, their work was becoming much more intensive, meaning that the rate of their physical or mental input was increasing, just in order to cover their required workloads. By 2017, nine out of ten teachers were strongly agreed that their jobs required them to work very hard. This compared with only half of other professional workers. Second, they experienced reduced discretion about how they did their jobs and reduced control over their working time.
