What is #Teacher5adaySlowChat?

A week of wellbeing chat – From Learning into Development

After the success of the slow chats at Easter and Christmas #teacher5adaySlowChat returns to complete your summer holiday. Running from Monday the 29.8 16 until Friday the 2.9.16 there will be no better way to finish your Summer break than by thinking about your well-being and how you can plan for the term ahead and beyond with the support of like-minded professionals? Dip in for a day or take part for the week.



#Teacher5adaySlowChat 3 will involve a variety of teachers sharing their views and ideas about the importance of well-being to promote the debate and continue the conversations started at Christmas and Easter during our first slow chats.

  1. Martyn,

    Look forward to the slowchat at the end of the month. Nothing but some revigoration before we return in September to share wellbeing ideas. Our school SLT are resistant to helping to support staff unfortunately but we need to chip away as staff moral and wellbeing is so crucial for successfully educating our young people.

    Happy holidays!
