Teaching and learning in the time of coronavirus (COVID-19) has created unprecedented changes, including impacting mental health and wellbeing.

To maintain a positive environment for learning in the classroom, teachers need to prioritise their mental health and wellbeing and to be better placed to help their students thrive.

To assist teachers in maintaining their mental health and wellbeing, the Department has introduced a series of free webinars to help support the wellbeing of teachers during this time.

Staying Safe and Well webinar series

The Staying Safe and Well webinar series is designed to provide practical mental health and wellbeing tips and strategies for all school staff through coronavirus (COVID-19). 

Webinars are available in the following topics:

Resilience in times of uncertainty 

Boost your protective factors by better managing your emotions, building more positive relationships with others and using your strengths to be more resilient through the uncertainty of coronavirus (COVID-19). 

Leading for Wellbeing

There is also a Leading for Wellbeing webinar series.  Designed to empower those in leadership or people manager roles to support the wellbeing of their staff through practical strategies and good practice management approaches.
