DISPLAYING ITEMS BY TAG: STRESS

'Wellbeing' is a word that has been bandied around for a while with regard to teaching as a profession. It generally stems from the issues that come from teaching being a stressful job. I imagine it has always been so: taking 30 young minds and guiding them (sometimes unwillingly) towards educational enlightenment is stressful. However, when you add the current climate in teaching in our country, “stressful” isn't a strong enough word.

I have spent most of my career encouraging communication and how it is, and always will be, the key to success. To many people this is obvious, though as adults we tend to forget that teenagers prefer to be non-committal and secretive, if not a little uncooperative.

At Bett 2017, the focus will be on education game changers, with sessions and discussions exploring how educators from across the world can help transform the future of education. Collaboration is key. After all, no one understands the sector and what schools need more than the people who work in them: the headteachers, senior leadership teams, classroom teachers and reception staff. These are the people who experience and witness first-hand the challenges within schools on any given day.
