It's clear that those who work in the education sector do so because they want to make a difference in young people's lives and they are passionate about helping them to fulfil their potential. However, it is also clear that for staff who work in these positions, there are a number of additional responsibilities and expectations placed on them that can make their job feel particularly overwhelming.

Many of those who work in the education sector report that their job is having a negative impact on their mental health, with work-related stress and anxiety being unfortunately common. This course will raise your awareness of the challenges faced in the education sector and provide you with ways to manage your own mental health, reduce work-related stress, and engage in the importance of self-care.
