Being a teacher is fulfilling. It’s an ever-changing career that inspires. But it can be mentally and emotionally challenging. Eight out of ten teachers recently told us they feel stressed.

How can you put you and your teams’ mental health first, when faced with competing demands? Our brilliant panel will help you answer this question.

Hosted by Education Support and Academy Transformation Trust, we are joined by a panel of experienced teachers and education staff who share their expertise on what works well - and what doesn’t - when putting wellbeing first.

Whether you’re a teacher who wants to look after your own wellbeing, or a school leader who wants to prioritise your staff’s mental health, our webinar will give you the tips, insights and expertise needed for the new academic year.

Chaired by Education Support’s Chief Executive, Sinéad Mc Brearty, our fantastic panel also includes:

  • Hilary Mitchell, Principal at Caldmore Primary Academy
  • Kully Uppal, Principal at Bristnall Hall Academy
  • Bupinder Singh, Class teacher at Caldmore Primary Academy Year 3
  • Niki Gibbs, School counsellor 
  • Rebecca Beardsworth, HR Administrator, Academy Transformation Trust

Our speakers bring a wide representation of school voices, sharing their perspectives and experiences in this engaging and interactive discussion. 


This has been an excellent, useful, insightful and HONEST hour.
