The Wellbeing Platform for Likeminded
Education Staff to Network and Socialise
The idea for EdRests comes from my own experience, where I have many friends who do not work in education.Therefore during the academic breaks if I did want to pursue my interests/hobbies during the day very few of them would be around. Having been fortunate enough to have been on some trips away with colleagues from my previous school, it dawned on me that a platform to allow people in education to network/socialise with likeminded professionals could be hugely beneficial to people’s wellbeing and widen friendship/support groups.
The Talking Toolkit is designed to be used as a framework to help line managers have simple, practical conversations with school employees. It should not be used as a sole response to
an existing problem with workrelated stress in your school. The toolkit has six templates for six different conversations, each with a different theme designed to get you talking about issues which may be causing work-related stress or issues which could have the potential to become future causes if not managed properly.

Are your staff and students mentally prepared for the academic demands of the new qualifications?
Have you considered what the summer term would look like if you were able to provide staff and students with scientifically proven techniques to help them to learn more effectively, think more clearly, perform better, feel calmer, happier and less anxious?
Stress amongst teachers and students in the UK is at an all-time high and staff absenteeism, due to stress related illnesses, is costing the country billions of pounds every year. The result of this stress epidemic could be depriving our young people of the best possible start in life.
It’s not all doom and gloom though! The latest scientific research proves that practising mindfulness improves attention, reaction time, memory and creativity. It also develops stamina and resilience. Neuroscientists have shown that by practicing mindfulness for a period of just six-weeks can change your brain, leaving it healthier and able to protect you from toxic stress.
Mindfulness is a form of mental training, with regular practice you can build your mindfulness muscle, as you develop this muscle you become more aware and more focused in all aspects of your life.
Our bespoke Mindfulness and Compassion six-week programme (6 x 1hr sessions) is tailored to alleviate stress, reduce fatigue and increase overall well-being. It will teach participants to identify their causes of stress and permanently alter the way they handle potential stressful situations in the future. Mindfulness will enable participants to be reflective not reactive.
Mindfulness courses will equip your staff and students with the tools for life long well-being.
