Extensive evidence exists that teachers can experience unhealthy levels of anxiety and stress that can manifest itself in a variety of ways. We are currently in the midst of an international crisis and the effects this is having on the wellbeing of all of us is well documented - not least for those of us that are on the front line in our schools.
Never before has this generation of teachers had to show more resilience.
In 'Resilient Teachers: How you can manage the pressure and shine, like a diamond!' we look at the importance of giving teachers time to reflect on their own resilience, and how school leaders can develop effective strategies to increase overall resilience in their schools. Join Sue Webb (Values-based Education), David Gumbrell (The Resilience Project) and Stephanie Reddington (Pupil Asset) as they talk about the importance of resilience in managing the inevitable challenges of everyday life, as well as showcasing the exciting VbE Resilience Survey which has been designed to ‘lift the lid’ on this conversation - to make staff feel valued and to help schools find bespoke solutions.
“We know that if teachers are happy in their workplace, they will be better placed to inspire pupils, and to improve the quality of teaching and learning. The VbE Resilience Survey is designed to be a quick, yet effective way to gauge staff well-being and to highlight areas of resilience that may need more consideration. This cost-effective tool will help to make staff feel valued and know that their wellbeing is being taken seriously. This survey will also hopefully provoke a healthy dialogue about the importance of resilience in managing the inevitable challenges of everyday life." David Gumbrell – The Resilience Project
