Leading a Culture of Wellbeing

About the program

Successfully managing heavy workloads is about working smarter – not harder. It also requires intentional practices at the personal and school level to ensure staff are able to work sustainably at their peak. A healthy school requires healthy teachers and leaders.

Leading a Culture of Wellbeing aims to increase participant's understanding of how to lead a culture of health and wellbeing, and learn how to plan, implement, support and evaluate a whole-school approach to wellbeing.

This program is designed to provide heads of learning area, wellbeing coordinators or wellbeing committee members with wellbeing principles that can be embedded across a whole school.

Participants have the opportunity to learn core concepts about the seven facets of wellbeing, the essential components required in a culture of school-wide wellbeing, and gain knowledge to support the executive team in the planning and implementation of a whole-school wellbeing program.

Learning intentions

By the end of this program, it is intended that participants will:

  • understand the mindsets required for implementing a school-wide wellbeing program
  • have a deeper understanding of core components of wellbeing and what they mean at a school-level
  • know core components required to implement a positive school culture of wellbeing and have tangible ways to support school leaders
  • be able to support principals/deputies as they implement a school-wide wellbeing plan.

Target audience

Middle leaders, wellbeing coordinators or wellbeing committee members and classroom leaders.
