1. CPD 

Our professional development sessions will provide your teaching staff with all the tools that they need to deliver learning opportunities and experiences that support health and emotional wellbeing, and promote the physical and social awareness of learners. We recognise that to achieve this, we must first support the staff’s wellbeing, so during our sessions, we’ll also share our tried-and-tested techniques that will support their ambitions and protect against burnout24

2. Classroom Resources

All Bettering Youth’s tutors are experienced teachers, so we totally understand the stress that’s experienced by many education professionals. This is why our resource library is jam-packed with materials that will help beat that feeling of emotional exhaustion26, boost your productivity levels27 and leave you feeling inspired

Staff well-being

Teaching staff work so incredibly hard and they deserve to feel appreciated and all-round amazing! Investing in our programme will not only improve the quality of teaching in your school, but will also improve staff retention rates, increase job satisfaction28, enhance productivity27, and decrease levels of illness and absence24. Plus, It’s a known fact that if your staff morale is low, then this is going to directly impact on the emotional wellbeing of your students and, therefore, their ability to learn.

Here are just some of the areas that our training will cover:


Scientific insights continue to show how mindfulness training can help lift your mood, improve your resilience levels, boost your immune system and elevate your levels of happiness! However, if your staff are going to effectively teach mindfulness to their students, then they need to be able to create their own mindfulness practice. Our training programme will guide your staff through some mindfulness meditations and then provide them with all the resources that they need to begin to establish their own mindfulness techniques.

Stress Management:

Whilst not all stress is bad, extreme levels of stress can be hugely detrimental to our overall health and wellbeing. Our training programme will help your staff to understand what makes them feel stressed and equip them with practical ways to manage their stress effectively.


Whilst teaching is so utterly rewarding, it also comes with its own share of ups and downs! If we’re not careful, sometimes the down times can knock us so far down that we may struggle to get back up. This is where our resilience training comes into play. Recent studies suggest that one in three teachers have taken time off due to stress, and our programme helps to address this major issue. We’ll guide your staff through the practical ways to boost their resilience levels so that they’re feeling stronger, more inspired and ready to be the best teachers that they can possibly be!
