Creating Well School Cultures is a 7-module online program designed for School Leaders in working with their leadership teams and staff to create a “well” environment. It is not the responsibility solely of the principal but rather developed through a collective leadership approach; led by the Principal.

This program provides Principals and a key staff member with the theory, skills, and tools to lead wellbeing within their schools. It enables them to develop the mindsets, knowledge, and behaviours that will support them and the staff they lead.

Creating Well School Cultures will build on and integrate with all other work and skills developed through the Principal Wellbeing Action Plan 2019-2021. It is expected that Principals enrol with another leadership team member.

Participants work through the online facilitated program in groups with a wellbeing expert who acts as the group guide. The process commences by digging deep into how the individual functions and then using this understanding to develop healthy and sustainable school wide wellbeing practices.

This facilitated small group approach provides the opportunity for a mix of theory, discussion, personal reflection tasks, collegiate conversations, and guided support.
Participants will develop a wellbeing “Strategy on a Page” for their school as a takeaway artefact.

This program is being repeated four times with a limit of 20 participants per cohort.

Participants will develop:

  • A wellbeing “Strategy on a Page” for their school as a takeaway artefact
  • An increased ability to understand and support the wellbeing of their staff
  • Practical strategies and interventions that enhance wellbeing and build in long term sustainable wellbeing practices for their schools
  • Their own leadership and personal capacity building regarding individual wellbeing
  • A framework for understanding stress and leading effectively through difficult times.
  • A deeper understanding of the dimensions of wellbeing, the wellbeing continuum, the strategic pillars of wellbeing, and the practices that enhance wellbeing.
  • Collegial networks that may continue beyond the professional learning.
