Advisory group on wellbeing to help improve teachers’ mental health is DfE’s latest measure to tackle recruitment and retention
The education secretary will tell the Association of School and College Leaders’ (ASCL) annual conference in Birmingham that teachers always put the good of their pupils first, but should not take their own wellbeing for granted.
well supportedteachers are more likely to have happy and motivated pupils in their classrooms.
General secretary of ASCL, Geoff Barton, welcomed the setting up of the advisory group, saying: “We have perhaps been too ready in the past to regard the pressures which are part of teaching as something which goes with the territory.”
Paul Farmer, chief executive of Mind, said: “The first, and arguably most important step, will be to start a conversation about mental health that empowers teachers, and make sure they have access to the right training and guidance to support themselves, their colleagues and their students.”
