Who should attend: This course is suitable for leaders with responsibility for staff welfare and for leaders within Human Resources departments.
Schools are pressurized environments, environments in which teachers and school leaders constantly feel the pressure to perform and succeed. Pressure, if not kept in check, can easily become stress and this can have a significant impact on the well-being of individuals and on schools as a whole.
Understanding the causes of work-related stress, especially in the context of schools, and reflecting on actions that can be taken to reduce stress, can help make your school a happier and more productive environment.
In this course we will look at a range of factors that cause teachers and leaders stress before considering practical measures to manage and reduce work-related stress in schools. The main topic we will consider will be the HSE Management Standards and how you can use these in your schools. We will also look at a range of issues around well-being of staff in schools.
- To discuss a range of mental health conditions that impact on the workforce in school
- To consider the sources of stress experienced by all staff in school
- To familiarise delegates with the Health and Safety Executive’s Management Standards to tackle work-related stress at school and provide methods for implementing them
- To discuss ways of promoting mental health well-being amongst staff at school
