Supporting resilience and wellbeing of students and staff free training for Worcestershire schools and colleges

The Educational Psychology team will be delivering free training sessions for Worcestershire schools and colleges. The supporting resilience and wellbeing of students and staff sessions are designed to help schools and colleges support wellbeing and psychosocial recovery, following return to full-time education.

The Educational Psychology team are able to deliver this free training after securing additional funding made available to local authorities as part of the Wellbeing for Education Return project (opens in a new window).

Each virtual course is made up of two sessions and will be delivered via Microsoft Teams.

In session 1 you will explore the themes of resilience and wellbeing in order to create a shared understanding of:

  • vocabulary and research around resilience and wellbeing
  • how the pandemic has impacted on the development of resilience and wellbeing
  • biological responses to stress and how the brain influences learning and behaviour
  • different ways to promote resilience and wellbeing in schools and colleges following the pandemic

Session 2 will have a more practical focus, exploring strategies that schools can employ to assess and promote resilience and wellbeing on an individual, group and whole-school level. This session will also outline local and national support services and resources to enable you to foster resilience and wellbeing well into the future.
