Description

Following the publication of the report 'Mental Health and Wellbeing in the Education Profession 2017' by the Education Support Partnership/YouGov, the Teach Well Alliance course Leading on Teacher Workload and Wellbeing has been upgraded to include its recommendations. This report is the first ever report on teachers' mental health and has profound implications for your school. The Mental Health of staff, including support staff, can no longer be ignored.

Leading on Teacher Workload and Wellbeing is a groundbreaking course from the Teach Well Alliance run by its founder, Steve Waters. It is based on the belief that teachers and support staff are in the best position to promote the wellbeing of their learners if their own mental health is promoted and issues of workload tackled. The course will draw on the findings and recommendations of 'Mental Health and Wellbeing in the Education Profession 2017' enabling delegates to leave with practical strategies and a plan which will equip them to lead on reducing workload and to implement strategies to promote mental health across the school.

The course is for you if:

  • You are concerned about workload and teacher/support staff wellbeing in your school

  • You want to do something about it so that staff are in a stronger position to support learners with mental ill-health

  • You are ready to begin to take action on your return to school.

The course is not for you if

  • You believe that teachers/support staff should be prepared to work as many hours as it takes
  • You believe that staff arriving early and leaving late is an expectation and a sign of commitment
  • You believe that the mental health of learners should be given priority by staff, irrespective of the cost to the wellbeing of teachers and support staff.

Course Content

The course will be interactive. Powerpoint will be kept to a minimum. The aim is to learn and plan by doing. It will be friendly, relaxed and supportive while focusing on action.

Topics which will be covered:

  1. The personal and financial impact of staff mental ill-health on the school.

  2. The key issues of workload and how to address them.

  3. Strategies to improve the mental health of teachers and support staff.
