Supporting the Wellbeing of NQTs and RQTs

Outline

This course is designed primarily to support the overall Wellbeing of those new to the profession by considering some of the key barriers and how to address them.

Description

The first part of the course aims to challenge some of the popular Health and Safety myths that tend to bombard NQTs and RQTs in their first few months in their settings and give the true picture thereby reducing anxieties around that area of work. Some common areas for discussion include (and this is by no means an exhaustive list)-
  • Can you put a plaster on a child? Myths around first aid.
  • Are you allowed to administer medication?
  • Is it okay to hug a distressed child?
  • Are we allowed to paddle in the ocean on an Education Visit?
  • How high can I climb to mount my displays?
  • Can I bring in my own equipment?
  • Are we allowed to restrain a child?


The second part of the course will consider some of the most common area of pressure cited by NQTs/RQTs. We will consider some theories on specific areas such as different working patterns, methods for prioritizing workloads, tried and tested theories on personal resilience and areas brought forward by the delegates on the day.

Practical material and practical solutions will be provided by the day and the course is led by experienced teachers.

The day will consist of individual work as well as small group and whole group work.

Outcomes

Delegates will be provided with practical material and solutions to aid them with their overall Health, Safety, Wellbeing and Resilience whilst being a teacher.

Booking Information

It is recommended that delegates bring with them internet enabled devices as the trainers will often use interactive presentation software called Slido. This is free to download if delegates wish to do so before the session.

Audience

All newly qualified teachers or recently qualified teachers.
