How to Support Teachers to Thrive with Expert Training and Coaching

Job satisfaction and work-life balance are essential for self-worth and motivation. Since the pandemic has rocked the education system, we’re seeing a growing number of teaching staff and students becoming despondent.

Did you know that a recent report suggested the most common reason 35% of 10,000 teachers stated they ‘may not be working in education in five years’ was that the education profession is not valued or trusted?

The Back on Track Teens ‘How to Support Teachers to Thrive’ programme can provide your school community with practical tools and emotional awareness strategies to foster a culture of inclusivity and positive wellbeing.

‘How to Support Teachers to Thrive’ Programme Outcome

By the end of the programme, participants will understand how to:

Spot the signs of emotional trauma in themselves and others

Identify the signs of unmet needs that manifest in challenging behaviours

Build a confident, growth mindset approach to the classroom

Create strategies to celebrate wins and strengths

Create better collaborative and supportive relationships with students


Pressures at work

77% of teachers have reported behavioural, psychological or physical symptoms, including panic attacks, anxiety, depression and insomnia, because of pressures they face at work.

Empowering Teachers and Support Staff

External pressures and emotional anxiety have increased due to post-pandemic demands, behavioural challenges, and ambiguity around SEN support and County Lines issues. Lack of knowledge and uncertainty about what to do for the best may even cause some teachers to feel unsure of themselves and out of their depth when supporting students.

A 2021 Charity Education Support report found that 77% of teachers have reported behavioural, psychological or physical symptoms, including panic attacks, anxiety, depression and insomnia, because of the pressures they face at work.

I just wanted to thank you, it is since he has seen you that his attitude has matured and he has become an independent learner, who wants to succeed at school and do well in his subjects.
