Employee Assistance Programme | Education Support
Coronavirus update: We continue to be here to provide mental health and wellbeing support to all education staff.

Employee Assistance Programme

We’re all human and challenges in life or at work can reduce our effectiveness or lead to time off.

What if you were able to give your team members a sympathetic ear at the right time?

Our Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) gives your team confidential support and guidance when they need it most.

Why an EAP?  

Whatever challenges your team is facing, we provide real solutions.

By investing in our EAP you can feel confident that you are providing the best possible support for your leadership, line managers and all school colleagues. The benefits of improved colleague wellbeing will be felt by the school, and in the classroom.


Support is available 24/7, and school staff can access a range of emotional and practical support including:

  • A range of counselling options including telephone, online or face-to-face sessions
  • A dedicated coaching service for line managers, aimed at developing soft skills and building confidence for handling challenging situations
  • Financial, legal and practical support from qualified professionals on a range of personal issues

"People come and tell me ‘I’ve had this problem, I phoned up Education Support and they were absolutely brilliant'. There is a feeling around the staff team that it supports their wellbeing and they can get support for all kinds of daily issues."
Heather Phillips, Blakesey Hall Primary School

Why us?

Education Support was established by teachers, for teachers -  over 140 years ago. We have a deep understanding of the education sector and the issues that matter to teachers.

Colleagues will use our Employee Assistance Programme because we understand teachers’ working lives and the issues that affect schools.

We support the working lives of 86,000 teachers and staff from 1,100 education institutions across the UK – we hope to include you among them.
