Kat Howard is Assistant Head at Duston School, Northampton. In addition, she is Founder of Litdrive, a resource and CPD provision for English teachers, and East Midlands Representative for the MTPT Project, a charity that supports parent- teachers with CPD in and beyond schools. Enthusiastic about research- informed Teaching and Learning, driving challenge in schools and subject-specific CPD for teachers, she believes that if teachers are well cared for and time is used effectively in schools, we can retain teachers and support them to fulfil a sense of purpose.  Her book, Stop Talking About Well-being: a pragmatic approach to teacher workload is out January 2020.
