WORK-LIFE BALANCE FOR EDUCATORS Course

OFFER | WORK-LIFE BALANCE FOR EDUCATORS

Work Life Balance (WLB) is an idea that we mainly hear about in relation to the business sector, where it has become a priority in recent years due to the positive impact it has on productivity and, therefore, profit. However, in non-commercial sectors, including education and development, the importance of balancing work and personal life continues to be overlooked. As a result, lack of WLB is one of the leading causes of professional burnout among educators.

In response to this, we have developed a course that will, on the one hand, help participants to find their own individual balance in their professional and personal lives and, on the other hand, present a replicable model for establishing a WLB programme in schools and education centres. Our approach is hands on and is designed to stimulate imagination and creativity, while also providing practical tools for you to use in your WLB implementation plan. The course includes energising activities and outdoor challenges which puts into practice some of the WLB principles we will learn about.

By participating in the course, you will also have the opportunity to meet with other people working in similar fields throughout Europe, expand your professional network, and build opportunities for potential partnerships.

For whom?

This course is for European managers, coordinators and administrators, trainers, teachers and educators.
