Stress-busting tips: how to stay calm and in control

Practical advice and support on managing stress for teachers and education staff.



We know the various demands of teaching and working in schools can be stressful. Whether it’s the mountain of books staring at you or the lesson plans tapping you on the shoulder; or it may be those budgets that need preparing or staff recruitment. 

Does this resonate? You’re not alone. 75% of all staff in our latest Teacher Wellbeing Index told us they’re stressed. And whilst some stress can be positive when managed correctly, more needs to be done to ensure you have a long, happy and rewarding career – not one cut short by too much stress and burnout.
