5-STEP WELLBEING ACTION PLAN

DESIGNED FOR TEACHERS

We passionately believe that all school staff have the right to feel good and function well, which will, in turn, have a positive knock-on effect on children’s learning.

2020 was an incredibly challenging year for most educators, with enormous uncertainty still on the horizon.

The course was designed specifically for teachers, school leaders, Mental Health First Aiders and other school staff.  It focuses on helping you manage your personal wellbeing and the final module focuses on supporting you in creating a Wellbeing Action Plan for your school.

“Absolutely brilliant! Provided me with the perfect opportunity to take a reflective pause and consider things to help my own wellbeing. Thank you!”

Charlotte Briggs, Executive Vice Principal for Inclusion and Wellbeing

WHAT THE COURSE WILL COVER

We start the course by:

  • Taking a fully anonymised baseline score of your wellbeing;
  • Learning a powerful tool to help you achieve your goals;
  • Learning how to monitor your wellbeing in seconds; and
  • How to act quickly to re-balance it when needed.

MODULE 1: CONNECT

Connections with the people around you form the foundations of your wellbeing.

  • The importance of social connections;
  • How building these connections will support and enrich you;
  • Connecting with different areas of your life;
  • The ‘one thing’ you can always connect to, to build your resilience and wellbeing; and
  • A down-loadable guide to help you feel less stressed or anxious in 3 minutes or less.

MODULE 2: BE ACTIVE

Being active has enormous benefits across all aspects of your health.

  • The physical and non-physical benefits of activity to your wellbeing;
  • The best, most enjoyable ways for you to be active;
  • The surprising benefit of movement in helping you deal with stress;
  • Why it’s so hard to sleep when you’re stressed and what you can do about it; and
  • “The 4-minute Workout” you can do anywhere.

Module 3: NOTICE

Noticing is simply being more aware of what’s happening in and around you. 

  • The importance of ‘noticing’ and how it can positively affect your wellbeing;
  • How to improve your focus and attention; and how to use it to boost your wellbeing; 
  • Understand two proven practices that maximise the benefits of ‘noticing’; 
  • Learn an effective technique if you’re feeling unsettled, anxious or worried; and
  • A mini-meditation to reduce stress or anxiety in 3 minutes or less.

MODULE 4: LEARN

Learning can have a powerful effect on our wellbeing. 

  • How learning can improve your wellbeing;
  • The science of how we learn, unlearn and relearn, throughout our lives;
  • Why we don’t always follow up on our actions and what we can do about it; 
  • The power of the Learning Journey; and
  • Ideas around what you’d like to learn and the concrete steps to get started.

MODULE 5: GIVE

Giving can impact our wellbeing in surprising ways.

  • How giving to others grows our feelings of happiness and life satisfaction;
  • Why it’s hard to give sometimes (and that’s ok); 
  • Different ways in which you can give to others;
  • The often overlooked aspect of giving generously to ourselves, while avoiding the hidden trap we often fall into as teachers.

  • Create a Wellbeing Action Plan for your school;
  • Complete the final assessment to see your new wellbeing score.

FAQs

Do I get a certificate?

Yes, you’ll receive a beautiful Certificate of Professional Development when you complete the course.

Can we purchase for our entire school staff?

Yes, you will receive a discount if you purchase the course for your school staff, depending on the size of your school or Multi Academy Trust. Please contact us for more information.

CAN I PURCHASE AS AN INDIVIDUAL?

Yes you can. We have priced the program to be affordable for individuals like you who would like to invest in your own wellbeing. Ideally your school would purchase the program for you, but we recognise that some individual teachers or school leaders may be in a school where this is not possible.

How long will it take to complete the course?

It will take about half an hour per module (there are 7 modules). You can watch the videos and complete the activities for each module in one go, or space it out. The course is entirely self-directed, so work at a pace that suits you.

How long do I have access to the course for?

You have lifetime access to the course.

Do i have to complete the course in one go?

No! We recommend you spend 5-7 days on each module. This gives you the opportunity to take your time, create your action plan step-by-step and embed your new daily actions.

CAN I COMPLETE THE COURSE IN LESS THAN 30 DAYS?

You can, but we have designed it very carefully to help you create healthy new habits, chosen entirely by you, and it takes time to embed these new habits.

How much time will I spend doing the actions?

Beyond the course work, you’ll get the best results if you carry out the daily actions from your action plan. The good news is that these are things that you will have chosen, that you’ll enjoy doing!

“Stress is contagious; if we can decrease it, our children will have greater access to their potential.  The online wellbeing training from Pursuit will impact your whole community – as everyone benefits from calmer, more connected teachers.”
