The largest teachers' union in Jersey says the findings of a new survey is "deeply troubling", after it found nearly 40% of teachers in state schools are not in good health.
According to The Jersey Teachers’ Survey, 37% of teachers in non-fee paying schools were not in good health.
NASUWT says they are concerned that health standards are "far below the levels of good health reported by Jersey’s adult population as a whole."
The survey, conducted by the States, is the first ever island-wide survey of teachers in Jersey.
According to NASUWT, the Education Department has committed to work with unions to act on the findings and improve the working conditions of teachers.
