Mental Health & Wellbeing Support Package
Working in conjunction with Seven Hills, experts in Health & Wellbeing in the workplace, Bluewave Education is offering an online end-to-end solution to aid your school in improving the Mental Health and Wellbeing of all staff within your school community.
This issue is a major concern for all within the education profession and recent headlines demonstrate how important this is.
It seems that every day there is a news story about this crisis within education.
"Schools paid more than £820 million on supply & cover in 2015"
"75% of teachers say the profession is negatively affecting their mental health”
“Teacher suicide rates double!”
“Over 50% of teachers plan to leave the profession in the next 5 years”
About the Author – Barry Wood, Managing Director, Seven Hills
Barry knew from a young age that he wanted to be a teacher. Teaching was his passion and he was excited to embark upon his educational career. As his career progressed and Barry moved into a middle leadership position, he began to feel that the mental health & wellbeing of staff was very low on the list of priorities for many establishments. After 11 years in the profession, Barry made the difficult decision to leave teaching. Barry is not alone.
Sadly, with increasing accountability, seemingly never ending new initiatives and a poor work-life balance - the situation looks set to get worse before it gets better.
Barry wanted to make a positive difference and formed a partnership with Bluewave in 2017. Together with a number of expert contributors including industry specialists in mental health, business consultants, human resource experts and cognitive therapy psychologists, we have created a suite of products designed to help schools combat this worrying trend.
