Teaching can be stressful under normal circumstances. Factor in changes to the assessment system, a new Ofsted framework, difficulties in retention and recruitment, under funding, rising concerns about the well-being of our students and you may find that the staff morale is compromised.
Purpose: To build collaboration and team spirit you could include team-building in your CPD programme. The session will remind participants about our common purpose whilst creating connections between people. They will be more aware of the strengths within the team through fun activities (avoiding invading each others personal space and being tied in knots). There are no towers and no newspapers and the session takes place on site.
The session promotes:
- A sense of belonging and shared purpose
- An appreciation of the contribution of different roles to the same goal
- A climate of co-operation and collaborative problem solving
- Improved communication
- An understanding of individual differences and strengths and how these can be harnessed effectively
Who is it for?
Whole staff groups or teams of staff. The session can be delivered as part of an INSET day or after school.
