Today, I am publishing a report, ‘Investing in an Excellent Workforce’, which has been jointly developed with the Education Workforce Council (EWC).

This progress report covers the whole workforce in schools (including teachers, headteachers, teaching assistants and others who support learners or teachers) and provides an update on what we have done so far and sets out our planned next steps.
