STLNC2206 Leading for wellbeing - staff and students

Presenter: Kristy Elliot

The last two years have had a momentous impact on wellbeing, including the wellbeing of school staff and students. Historically schools have prioritised the wellbeing of students and have implemented programs to support student mental health. It is only more recently that school staff have been included as a target group which has surfaced the need for school leaders* to increase their understanding and application of wellbeing at work to support school staff in this area. While wellbeing in the workplace is everyone’s business, this course also recognises that school leaders hold a unique position that enables and requires them to support and enhance others’ wellbeing at work. Over three sessions participants in this course will come to understand the breadth and depth of wellbeing science and how they can embed evidence-based strategies at the individual, collective and system levels. Core content will include wellbeing assessment and management, creating a culture of psychological safety, leading with strengths, fostering connections and trust in teams, job crafting, compassionate leadership and more. *School leader is a broad term inclusive of many levels of leadership.
