Mental Wellness at Work for School Staff


CPD Workshop for Teachers

Teaching is a rewarding but stressful occupation. It is commonly agreed that people who display high levels of emotional resilience are better equipped to deal with stress and appear to thrive compared with those with lower levels of emotional resilience. The good news is that resilience is not an innate characteristic, it can be learned.

Our workshop gets the year off to a wonderfully positive start.  Staff feel cared for and valued and the challenges of this profession are not over looked but considered and supported.

The programme is designed to leave participants with:

  • Improved emotional literacy
  • An evidence based toolbox of techniques for coping with stress
  • A greater ability to self-regulate with a particular emphasis on stress and mild anxiety
  • A more positive ”growth” mindset and the ability to challenge internal negative thoughts
  • Improvements in motivation, confidence and self esteem
  • Knowledge of where to go for help if it is needed
  • A greater sense of team spirit and unity with colleagues
  • An understanding of ‘locus of control’ and how it affects the ability to deal with stressful situations

The lessons learned in these interesting, engaging and enjoyable workshops, not only increase staff’s capability to stay happy and strong, and deal with stress, but has an impact on the ethos of the school and influences the children too.

Options for these workshops are as follows:

Twilight Session – This 1 ½ hour taster session raises the awareness of the key points outlined above.  Participants will take away with them some ideas about looking after their Mental Wellbeing.  The price of this session is £250 for a group up to 30 participants.
