Personal and organizational stress has been heightened by many factors including: changes in curriculum, management and funding; demands for increased accountability through new forms of inspection; and pressure from meeting the individual needs of pupils. This text identifies the needs of teachers for personal support and professional development, and sets out guidelines for meeting these needs. Each chapter focuses on different aspects of the needs of teachers and is written by an expert in the area concerned. Each will draw on educational research and teaching experience to make practical suggestions for advancing support and development in ways which enhance and improve school life for teachers and pupils.
