With increased pressure on schools to cope with the rising prevalence of mental health difficulties amongst children and young people, it is important for schools to consider how they can support the mental health and wellbeing of school staff. Adults who have good mental wellbeing are more likely to cope during stressful episodes and less likely to negatively impact the emotional wellbeing of those around them.
Spotlight on the
Introduction to Staff Wellbeing Workshop: 2hr
The YMCA Trinity Group Staff Wellbeing workshop is flexible to meet the needs of your setting and the outcomes you wish to achieve and is suitable for all adults who work with children. This workshop considers the importance of wellbeing in adults and the impact of this on the children and young people they care for. Delegates will leave with a greater understanding of the science underpinning wellbeing and practical strategies to use in their setting. We can also provide support to senior staff to help create strategies to boost morale and reduce stress as well as staff absence.
Added Benefits: To give more people the opportunity to develop their understanding, we have teamed up with The Skills Network to offer all schools that purchase our Whole Staff programmes the opportunity to access additional Level 2 Distance Learning courses in a variety of related topics. Not only can school staff, early years settings staff benefit from the accredited programmes, but parents can also access them – free of charge.
