Developing Mental Toughness for those new to teaching

Suitable for: All teachers new to the profession including trainee teachers. In addition, those teachers who wish to improve their personal and professional effectiveness.

Focus: According to recent government figures almost four out of ten teachers leave the profession within a year of qualifying and a recent ATL survey found that almost three-quarters (73%) of trainee and newly qualified teachers have considered leaving the profession, with 76% blaming heavy workloads and stress. In her research on stress, Professor of Psychology, Marianne Frankenhaeuser highlighted three of the most widely considered stress-inducing factors in the occupational setting as aspects of workload, time pressure and control. All of which are significant in the teachers’ life.

The aim of this course is to introduce teachers to the concept of Mental Toughness and to provide delegates with some practical tools to help them to cope better at work by remaining determined, focused, confident, and in control under pressure.
