Research has shown that teaching is one of the most stressful professions in the UK, as well as showing that good staff wellbeing is directly related to good pupil wellbeing. We are therefore keen to support schools in ways to improve and maintain good staff emotional health.
Our programme has three components:
- a half-day initial training session for senior staff and/or mental health leads focusing on whole school factors relating to wellbeing, which introduces a compassion-focused model for supporting staff.
- a follow-up half-day session focusing on ways for staff teams to work together on wellbeing activities, and ways individuals can better manage stress.
- the opportunity to join a facilitated peer support group for wellbeing leads to share good practice and keep up the momentum around implementing change.
