Webinar: Wellbeing Wednesday October

Ask the health and wellbeing specialists

In our next Wellbeing Wednesday Webinar on 28 October, we will be joined by a panel of four specialists to answer questions submitted by you about supporting your health and wellbeing. 

GTC Scotland has worked with health and wellbeing specialists to support teacher and lecturer wellbeing during the lockdown and beyond for our Health and Wellbeing Hub. Now, as schools and colleges have reopened, wellbeing and resilience are being tested even further as teachers and lecturers strive to provide a nurturing and safe environment for their learners. The resulting additional challenges and pressures may cause feelings of strain and disconnect and test the most resilient of colleagues.  

You can submit questions in advance here to enter a prize draw to win Dr Emma Hepburn's book 'A Toolkit for Modern Life: 53 Ways to Look After Your Mind'.
