Pioneers in Supporting Educational Staff Wellbeing 

Wellbeing Solutions has become the go-to partner for educational institutions across the UK, specialising in delivering tailored Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP) and critical support services.

Background

With a portfolio encompassing over 2,000 schools and higher educational institutions, and a combined staff headcount of 122,598, our commitment to understanding and addressing the unique challenges of the education sector has positioned us as industry leaders in staff wellbeing.

Challenges in the
Sector

Educational professionals face distinct pressures, from managing classroom dynamics to navigating administrative responsibilities. The wellbeing of these individuals directly impacts the quality of education and student success. Recognising this, Wellbeing Solutions set out to provide specialised support suited to the nuanced needs of educational staff and local authorities.

Our EAP Approach

Our approach involves close collaboration with each school to understand its culture and challenges. By offering bespoke EAP services, we ensure that every staff member has access to the support they need when they need it.

Our extensive experience with local authorities and educational trusts, like the Diocese of Ely MAT and the London Borough of Waltham Forest, has allowed us to fine-tune our services for maximum efficacy.

Impactful
Outcomes

Our services have led to:

  • A demonstrable reduction in staff absenteeism.
  • Improved staff morale and retention.
  • Enhanced resilience among educational professionals.
  • A strengthened sense of community and support within school environments.

Notable Outcome: Nottingham Trent University

A testament to our responsive and specialised care was demonstrated during an unfortunate terrorist attack at Nottingham Trent University.

Wellbeing Solutions’ rapid deployment of on-site support within 12 hours exemplified our readiness and commitment to crisis management, providing immediate, compassionate assistance during a critical time.

The significant role Wellbeing Solutions plays in the education sector is underscored by our expansive reach and the depth of our services.

As schools remain the largest individual employee/customer segment in our portfolio, our dedication to this sector continues to grow. Wellbeing Solutions is proud to contribute to the nurturing of positive educational spaces through comprehensive mental health support.
