About this course

We are currently refining the structure of this training in an online format and so the times and dates may change slightly. Participants will be notified of any changes with sufficient notice.

School staff often juggle multiple tasks and demands, so a focus on staff wellbeing has become increasingly important.

In order to effectively support the mental health and wellbeing of pupils we must first support the mental health and wellbeing of school staff.

Taking good care of staff both emotionally and practically helps them to perform to the best of their ability and ensures that they are better able to support pupils. Workloads, deadlines and challenging behaviours can all impact negatively on the wellbeing of school staff.

Staff who have good mental wellbeing are more likely to have the necessary resources to be able to manage and plan during or after stressful episodes whether with a pupil, a class, a colleague, an inspector or a parent. 

This training will outline practical tools and a framework for promoting and supporting staff wellbeing in school and colleges. It will draw on examples that have been tried and tested in a range of school settings. The training will give the opportunity for attendees to develop a project to take back to their settings and embed.

We regularly hold trainings at the Centre or if you are interested in commissioning a training for your school, please email school.training@annafreud.org
