Avoiding burnout in your teaching team

Teaching  can be a stressful job. It is demanding physically, mentally and emotionally. And this is reflected in the relatively high levels of burnout experienced in the profession.

Burnout is what happens when stress reaches a tipping point. It’s a kind of complete exhaustion, which can take weeks or even months to recover from. At its most serious the sufferer may be left with permanent health problems. No good employer wants this for their staff.

In addition, the physical and mental health problems triggered by stress and burnout can impact negatively on staff morale and motivation and relationships between staff members, lead to higher levels of absenteeism and ultimately create a much higher staff turnover.

 

 

Online training pack

I am currently developing a six session training pack for language schools to help you help your staff (and indeed yourself).

Each session comes with video input, worksheets and full training notes. The group sessions are designed to be completed in 45-60 minutes, depending on the time you have available together.

Individual staff members who are not able to attend the session can also access the materials and work through the materials in their own time, or go back and look at anything again.
