Happy Teachers Happy Schools – An Introduction

Founded by a teacher for teachers, Happy Teachers Happy Schools is a purpose driven company that specialises in:

  • online training programs, 1:1 and small group coaching that show you how to apply the science of happiness to your own experience and build a meaningful career
  • bespoke consultancy services designing school systems and processes which live your school values and showcase your unique character by embedding a culture that values teachers and drives success

Teaching is an amazing job.  But it’s also really tough. And teachers tend to focus on looking after everybody but themselves.  It’s sobering to think that more than 50% of teachers have thought about leaving the profession in the last two years because of health concerns.  Happy Teachers Happy Schools shows curious, evidence oriented teachers and school leaders how the science of happiness can help them to get happier at work and build happier workplaces.

Why bother with happiness? Because a critical mass of research shows that happiness and good health go hand in hand: happiness can make your heart healthier, your immune system stronger, improve your resilience and your ability to cope with stress.  When you prioritise happiness you’re investing in both your physical and your mental well-being.
