Covering Teachers’ Absence

Following publication of the Wales Audit Office Report Covering Teachers’ Absence in September 2013, the Public Accounts Committee undertook an inquiry into covering teachers’ absence. Specifically, the Committee focused on:

  • Trends in teacher absence;
  • Managing teacher attendance better, including sickness absence;
  • Minimising the impact of covered lessons on learners progress;
  • Improving the management of absence cover;
  • Improving the continuing professional development of supply teachers;
  • Cover related to Welsh Government policies and initiatives;
  • Ensuring that resources spent on supply cover are managed more effectively;
  • Keeping pupils safe.
