From burnout and boundaries to classrooms and culture, Amy Sayer shines a light

In this 2-hour webinar, for primary and secondary school senior leaders and classroom staff, Amy Sayer teaches you how to implement effective techniques to improve your own mental health at school.

Drawing on case studies from her years of experience supporting staff mental health, she introduces inexpensive, practical and realistic strategies you can put into practice to ensure that self-care and family time don’t slip under the radar in the face of increasing pressure and limited resources.

From burnout and boundaries to classrooms and culture, Amy’s keynote for Thrive will help you to foster an ethos of openness around your own mental health at school and support you and your colleagues to re-discover your love of teaching.
