work life balance and avoid burnout.

Hywel’s best-selling titles include 'Oops! Getting Children to Learn
Accidentally' and 'Unchartered Territories' (with Debra Kidd). He will also be

who has worked in education for the last decade, said: “From my very first step
inside the classroom, I was hooked. I realised that education is a powerful
tool to improve the life chances of young people and I haven’t looked back.”
added: “My workshop will help teachers to balance the achievable and the
desirable, reminding them that you cannot give from an empty cup. Teaching is
hard work, but I will help NQTs to work smart and to strive for that elusive
work life balance we hear so much about!”
Wright, Senior Lecturer in the Institute of Childhood and Education, said:
are delighted to be welcoming NQTs and Early Career Teachers to this event.
This is an ideal opportunity to invest in new areas of specialist knowledge,
such as BAME provision, steps into SENCO work, or supporting PP students - both
for personal intellectual development, and for career benefits and school
enrichment. I’m especially looking forward to catching up with Leeds Trinity
graduates at the start of their teaching careers.”
