Wellbeing for education return training

The national Wellbeing for Education Return programme seeks to better equip schools and colleges to promote children and young people’s wellbeing, resilience and recovery in response to COVID-19.  As well as strengthening and building wellbeing and resilience, the programme aims to prevent the onset of mental health problems and ensure those with pre-existing or emerging difficulties access the right support.  The programme will support schools and college staff to:

  • Reflect on an effective whole school approach to wellbeing.
  • Respond to additional pressures some children and young people may be feeling as a direct result of the pandemic.
  • Respond to any emotional responses that children, young people or school staff may be experiencing from loss or bereavement, stress, anxiety or low mood.

The programme has been developed and funded by the Department for Education and the Department of Health and Social Care, in partnership with Public Health England.

The programme will be delivered over five (one hour, virtual) sessions between November 2020 and June 2021. At no cost to schools, there will be an opportunity to listen to nationally accredited research and good practice, whilst working with colleagues from local education and mental health services and similar educational settings.
