Wellbeing for Education Leicestershire
As we start the new academic year, mental health and wellbeing continues to be a priority for Leicestershire & Rutland educational settings. The prevalence and impact of mental health and wellbeing problems continues to be far-reaching particularly in response to Covid and the ongoing cost of living crisis. Schools have a unique and important part to play in supporting the mental health and wellbeing of their staff, students, and other members of the school community.
Using resource provided by the Department for Education, we have commissioned long-standing partner Billson Consulting Ltd to coordinate and deliver a new programme of support for 2022-23 academic year. This programme will build on the previous years' well-received Wellbeing for Education Return and Wellbeing for Education Recovery programmes, known as Wellbeing for Education Leicestershire.
The programme offers a range of sessions and resources which are all FREE to access for Leicestershire & Rutland schools. This includes:
- School Network Meetings
- Guest Speaker Sessions
- Staff Wellbeing Workshops
- Local Service Engagement Sessions (Meet the Service)
Please find further information about all the sessions and meetings within the leaflet below. You can book onto the sessions directly through the document via the hyper-linked titles, or you can use the Wellbeing for Education Leicestershire Eventbrite.
