Teacher Resilience

Teacher Resilience

The current COVID-19 crisis has greatly accelerated the need for modernisation and digital transformation of education and training systems across Europe. At the same time, the pressure on teachers to master a number of new skills, such as getting accustomed to online teaching, while at the same time delivering high quality inclusive education is tremendous. This creates serious preconditions that can contribute to a further increase of the otherwise high number of educators exposed to extreme stress and potential burnout, which is a chronic phenomenon that continues to be a main cause of teacher exodus in the 21st century (Lavian, 2012).

The project is aimed at designing, developing and testing a school teacher resilience toolkit to equip educators with efficient strategies on how to prevent and handle burnout, as well as fostering mental and health well-being.
