Understanding stress and resilience in teachers: online study

Teaching is one of the most stressful occupations. Stress in teaching can be caused by a range of factors such as poor student behaviour and workload demands, and this can cause anxiety, depression and burnout.

Kings College want to discover what psychological factors foster resilience to long term stress. They will use this information to develop new interventions to promote resilience in teachers, and help to prevent anxiety and depression in the longer term.

Who can take part? 

They are seeking qualified teachers aged 18-65, employed full-time in a UK primary or secondary school, to complete an online survey.

What will happen if I take part?

The survey involves a few questionnaires and tasks, and will take approximately 25mins to complete. As a contribution for your time, Kings College will enter all eligible completed surveys into a prize draw to win one of 9 prizes of £50, or 1 prize of £100. Please visit the their website for the survey and more information about the study: https://kcliop.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_1GI5cRMsVPeKykB
