New online resource supports health and wellbeing during COVID-19

Education Scotland have developed an online resource in collaboration with key partners to ensure that staff across the education system feel supported, and can meet the needs of our learners during this challenging time.

The new resource called ‘Support for the education workforce during COVID-19’ focuses on health and wellbeing with guidance on professional learning opportunities and resources to support recovery.

To help ensure this resource is accessible to the education system as a whole the resource has been categorised into 7 specific tiles, including: Support for all, Support for senior leaders, Support for teachers, Support for CLD, Support for Early Learning and Childcare, Support for parents, and Support for additional child protection issues.

The information on the pages has been developed through a collaboration of organisations involved in the Covid Education Recovery Workforce Support Group who plan and deliver work funded to support the health and wellbeing of the workforce through the pandemic.

Gayle Gorman, Chief Inspector and Chief Executive at Education Scotland said: “Supporting the education community is our main priority at Education Scotland. It’s recognised that positive health and wellbeing of the workforce will have a positive impact on learners. This is an invaluable resource and our hope is that it’s used widely across the community as we work together to support each other.’

The Support for education workforce during COVID-19 resource is available on the Education Scotland National Improvement Hub.
