Wellbeing for early career teachers

Wellbeing is both an individual and a collective responsibility and one that we know can be a challenge for teachers.

The General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS) has created and curated a variety of Health and Wellbeing resources and advice to support teacher and lecturer health and wellbeing. Many of these resources were developed during lockdown and the transition back into schools during the Covid-19 pandemic, but they contain useful wellbeing tools that are relevant to any time.

The cycle of wellbeing

The Cycle of Wellbeing draws together a wide range of national guidance and resources published to support the wellbeing of staff and children and young people.
