Segmented into five distinct but interlinked modules the Educators’ Wellbeing Toolkit engages participants in a collaborative exploration of wellbeing and social capital. Through a mix of expert tuition, experiential exercises, practical workplace application and self-reflection the programme assists participants to make subtle adaptations to their behaviours and mindsets geared towards the proactive management of their personal health and wellbeing.
The Wellbeing Toolkit is a self-paced development programme, designed to dovetail with existing school forums such as regular staff meetings. By integrating the Wellbeing Toolkit process into the school’s existing rhythms, very little additional time commitment is required from staff.
Each module is introduced with an expert tutorial which is delivered online. These expert tutorials lay the foundation for an interactive peer learning session. Expert tutorials and peer learning sessions are structured to be easily deliverable during a designated staff meeting.
Participating schools nominate one or more Toolkit Leaders to facilitate the peer learning sessions and provide a project management role throughout the programme. Toolkit Leaders are provided with a comprehensive Facilitation Guide, including full transcripts of the video content, discussion prompts and frames, and practical activity options as well as application guidelines. They are also given Q&A and troubleshooting tips to help predict and handle any group/room-based elements that may arise during the program, including important legal, compliance or medical referral avenues. By utilising internal resources to deliver the programme, schools build internal appetite and capacity for staff health and wellbeing.
