Abstract:
This study is an exploration of the impact of emotional labour on secondary school teachers in the UK. It is a small-scale qualitative study using data from five secondary school teachers currently working in various counties in the north-west of England. The data from these participants was collected using semi-structured interviews. The data was subsequently analysed using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis, the findings of which show that although teaching is an emotionally demanding job, experiences of the emotional labour involved in it can be positive as well as negative. The emerging themes include the impact of emotional labour both inside and outside the classroom and the demands this makes on teachers. The findings support other research work in this area.
