It is estimated that an additional 500,000 people will experience mental health problems as a result of COVID-19 in the coming years. *1
Over the last year, many of your staff will have experienced some kind of trauma, be it illness, bereavement, social isolation, economic uncertainty, financial hardship, inequality or anxiety about the future. Poor mental health and wellbeing among staff leads to increased absenteeism, presenteeism and reduced ability to support the mental health of learners.
As a manager, what plans do you have to support your staff, creative a positive working environment and ensure learners are supported?
We’re hosting a 2-part interactive training session for middle and senior managers, to help you work through the different issues to consider and how you can ensure the right support is in place.
Taking place on Tuesday 8 & Thursday 10 June 2021 (10am-11.15am) the session will allow you to:
- Have the courage and competence to support staff health and well-being
- Make a serious and visible commitment staff health and well-being
- Develop the ability to empathise with different people and different issues and access to tools to support them
- Consult with staff to build a strategic, holistic strategy targeting action where it is most needed.
Managers will complete a pre-course questionnaire beforehand to self-assess their skills and reflect on their current practice. They will return to this assessment at the end of the training to identify progress made and identify any future self-development.
