“I believe there are some things (we can do) that would make a really big difference for the whole workforce.”

Sinéad McBrearty is the Chief Executive Officer of Education Support, the only UK charity dedicated to supporting the mental health and wellbeing of education staff in schools, colleges and universities.

In this incredibly insightful conversation, Sinéad paints a picture of where we are now, according to their latest research Teacher Wellbeing Index, 2020.

And she goes into considerable detail of what can be done to improve the education landscape; specifically three things “that would make a really big difference for the whole workforce.”

This is definitely an episode not to miss.
