What is your advice about? Managing Workload

  1. Plan your time carefully so that you make allowances for all of your responsibilities. This includes time for rest, exercise and connecting with friends & family.
  2. Aim to begin your day early and finish later than student dismissal. Mornings are good for checking emails, afternoons for marking & preparation.
  3. You will need to make personal time available for work. Build this time into your weekends but don’t allow this to interfere with social events, rest or exercise.
  4. Use some of your holidays for work but be flexible & use times when the weather is unsuitable to go out or you have no plans. Never say ‘no’ to an invitation because of work.
  5. Set up a permanent workspace at home that is seperate from your living areas. Drift in & out of this space as determined by your mood & work demands.
