Introducing Staff Wellbeing Pathway

This positive staff wellbeing programme takes a proactive approach to addressing stress within teaching and school staff. Staff will develop a clear understanding of wellbeing and how to build it in themselves and as a team.

Staff take part in a group coaching programme that covers strategies to help prevent burnout, improve work-life balance and build positive peer support, empowering your school staff team to build resilience. This supports staff to be able to cope with the demands of teaching or working in the school environment, even during times of change and uncertainty.

Group Coaching and Professional Development for your School Staff Team

Through learning from the field of positive psychology coaching and work psychology, the training allows participants to experience and practise wellbeing interventions that can be applied personally, within a staff team or across a school community. 

The Staff Wellbeing Pathway provides practical group coaching and wellbeing tools that staff can try out as a team. The Pathway supports your staff to build positive relationships that provide the foundation of wellbeing and help staff teams get through challenging times by coming together rather than pulling apart.

How the Staff Wellbeing Pathway Supports your School Staff

Group Coaching

The design of the programme utilises group coaching: this has been proven to be the most effective form of CPD for wellbeing and performance.

Peer Support Network

Sharing ideas and advice with others, as a team, builds the foundation of positive relationships necessary to develop staff wellbeing.

Personalised Strategies

Wellbeing isn’t a one size fits all approach. The wellbeing pathway supports staff to identify their own personalised strategies for wellbeing.

Stress Awareness

The Staff Wellbeing Pathway explicitly covers strategies for stress awareness and management, which build staff’s bank of wellbeing resources.

Whole School Approach

Staff Wellbeing is integral to a whole school approach. Good staff wellbeing increases schools’ capacity to support children and young people’s wellbeing and mental health more effectively.

Developing Trust

Developing trust as a team and the ability to have difficult conversations about wellbeing and stress is significant to any approach to supporting staff wellbeing.

Worth-it question mark

What Research and Evidence underpins Worth-it’s Staff Wellbeing Programme?

Our Whole School Approach

Our whole school system for positive mental health offers a step-by-step process, enabling you to audit, plan and take action in developing your whole school approach.  This has been developed from positive psychology, organisational psychology, and practical experience of working with schools for 12 years. Wellbeing is facilitated through interactions and connections – this is why our system framework places staff wellbeing at the centre of the whole school approach.

By supporting staff wellbeing you are increasing your school’s capacity to support pupil and student wellbeing.

Positive Education

Positive education is the science of wellbeing applied in educational settings.

Worth-it are a leading provider of Positive Education in the UK. We base all our programmes on the SEARCH Pathways to Wellbeing (Waters and Loton 2019). SEARCH provides a proven and evidence-based framework that supports schools to plan, implement, develop and embed sustainable approaches to developing whole school wellbeing. 

Like our programmes for children and young people, the Staff Wellbeing Programme is also based on the SEARCH framework, contributing to a shared framework for developing staff and pupil wellbeing across the school setting.

Coaching Psychology

Coaching psychology is the evidence-based approach to using coaching to improve wellbeing, performance, and success. Coaching has been proven to be the most effective leadership and development tool within the education sector.  

Coaching has been demonstrated by many psychology researchers to be the most effective form of CPD for the development of staff wellbeing, stress management and performance.

We're Here To Help

Supporting your team to maintain levels of wellbeing during challenging times and constant change can be difficult.

Staff need to feel able to take responsibility for their own wellbeing while also feeling supported by their school or school leaders.
