Teacher Wellbeing Programme

This package of support for schools combines drop in wellbeing coaching sessions and twilight wellbeing CPD sessions for teachers and school staff.

Working in environments that support and educate children and young people are often very rewarding and exciting places to work. However, being a teacher or TA also demands high amounts of skill, personal resources and requires significant levels responsibility. This can cause teachers, TAs and support staff to feel pressurised, overwhelmed and unable to manage the demands of their role. This can negatively impact on their ability to cope with competing priorities, growing stress levels and ultimately their emotional and mental health. This has a negative effect not only on their work perfomance but also on the wellbeing of the puplis they are working with.

Worth-it offer drop in days of individual staff wellbeing coaching sessions for all levels of teaching or school staff. The coaching sessions provide resources for developing personal resilience, managing change and reducing stress levels. Outcomes of coaching result in improved work performance and positively impact on the support, education and outcomes of children and young people.
