A key focus area in the Pause, Breathe, Smile programme is the focus on teacher wellbeing. Often overlooked teacher wellbeing is seen as a ‘nice to have’ rather than as essential. We believe the opposite. We see your wellbeing as a vially important factor in quality, performance and productivity. Becoming a certified Pause, Breathe, Smile teacher will support stress reduction and improve emotional wellbeing.
“The training was amazing. Coming together with a group of likeminded people who held firm beliefs in the potential of the programme for the children and youth they work with soon created a true sense of ‘community’. I felt that we were offered a very rich professional (and personal) learning experience through which we gained a relatively in-depth knowledge of the programme. I have come away from the training with the tools I need to implement the programme within our learning environment and with the reassurance that I have support should I need it from both the programme facilitators and the other members of the group who I trained with.” Jo Emerson, Principal, Longburn School
