CER host Health and Wellbeing event for trainee teachers

CER Education held a busy Health and Wellbeing Open Day for trainee teachers in February.

Held at its Liverpool office in Exchange Flags, CER offered a number of activities for trainee teachers, from how to manage your workload for a healthy work/life balance, to breathing and meditation techniques.

The day also featured activities on how to manage personal stress and included a talk by a trained NLP (Neuro-linguistic programming) coach.

Trainees also got the chance to meet with CER’s experienced team of education consultants and discuss teaching opportunities for September 2019.

It’s never been more important to focus on and ensure the wellbeing of teaching staff. According to a recent survey by the National Education Union, 80% of classroom teachers have considered leaving the profession due to their workloads.

As sponsors of the Teacher of the Year Award since 2016, CER Education understand the lengths teachers go to support their students and take great pride in placing the right teachers in the right schools across the UK.

Tce McCann, regional director at CER Education, said: “The CER team believes the Educate Awards bring to life the best practice for the real work and heroes in our schools. We enjoy the evening, taking the opportunity to meet with old and new friends. We love the opportunity to present the award to the year’s most inspirational teacher.

“We work with talented teachers to find rewarding roles that are right for them, the pupils and our schools; it doesn’t feel like a job – it’s a great way to spend your day!

“At CER, we are proud of the service we provide to attract, place and support teaching professionals every day to inspire our young people.”

The Teacher of the Year Award recognises teachers who are bringing learning to life by engaging and inspiring children and young people to fulfil their potential through their tireless efforts, patience, passion, encouragement, dedication and energy.

Teachers can nominate themselves, or can be nominated by pupils, headteacher, parents or teaching staff.
