FOCUSING ON TEACHER WELLBEING – IT’S NEVER BEEN MORE ESSENTIAL
The statistics tell the story. Teaching – rated in the world’s top 10 most stressful jobs. 40-50% of our most recently graduating teachers leave the profession within 5 years. A profession with high levels of burnout and low levels of retention.
With an increasing awareness for the need for wellbeing initiatives for children in schools as a lifelong protective factor for their mental health, we also need to acknowledge and address the wellbeing of every teacher. Teachers, shaping the lives of tomorrow’s leaders, innovators and parents, need more CARE to withstand the daily stressors that life in a class of up to 35 children (and their parents) brings.
The CARE Factor immerses teachers in a world of their own wellbeing, driven by the principles of Positive Psychology which is available online, in their own time, in easily digestible units of sequenced learning.
