Often overlooked in the delivery of a busy and comprehensive curriculum, is the well-being of school staff. Often it takes a breaking point issue to really grasp the importance of initiating, developing and maintaining qualitative and quantitative staff well-being. An investment in staff well-being development raises awareness of the importance of staff, and upskills them to take even more control over their own well-being in an emotionally secure school setting. If staff are more at ease with their well-being this has a very positive impact on pupil engagement and achievement.

Aims of the course:

  • To introduce key aspects of positive mental health and well-being for staff
  • To identify different types of stress and stress triggers
  • To develop emotional competencies and stress coping strategies

Delegates will learn how to:

  • Identify and define what stress is
  • Identify different types of stress i.e. panic attacks, depression, anxiety
  • Measure stress through a stress audit
  • Identify stress triggers
  • Review current coping and preventative mechanisms
  • Identify additional coping and preventative mechanisms
  • Introduce strategies for coping for life enhancement and enjoyment
