Education Sector Mental Health and Wellbeing
We constantly observe eye catching headlines such as;
“Teacher suicide rates double”
“75% of teachers say the profession is negatively affecting their mental health”
“Over 50% of teachers plan to leave the profession in the next 5 years”
As the Managing Director of Seven Hills Fitness, I personally know the appalling state of teacher health and wellbeing in the UK as I have over 10 years of first-hand experience working in the education sector. With supply teaching costs set to top £1 billion this year, the sector is at breaking point!
As a teacher, I could no longer stay in a profession that so poorly valued the health of the people that drive it forward. I left the profession I loved with a view to improve it. With collaborative input from educational experts, human resource gurus, mental health professionals, motivational coaches and employment law specialists, my team and I (in partnership with Bluewave Education) designed an end-to-end solution to aid schools to improve the Mental Health and Wellbeing of all staff. The Evaluation Framework covers six key areas for staff Mental Health and Wellbeing;
- Physical health
- Mental health
- Work environment and workload
- Team cohesion
- Absence management
The digital evaluation framework allows schools to assess how strong they are in each section by answering relevant questions. From this first step Seven Hills Fitness can analyse the report generated, and make recommendations for key improvements. With 13 digital projects and action plans, any school can make the simple steps to improve the Mental Health and Wellbeing of all their staff.
The full end-to-end solution includes:
- Mental Health & Wellbeing Evaluation Framework
- Expert Challenge Review
- Action Plans with free resources
- Expert Strategic Support
- Access to professional development from the experts
