We're here to help you...

Education is a rapidly-changing, intensely demanding profession to work in - perhaps now more than ever before - but we don't need to tell you this. Expectations for attainment are high, yet resources seem to be diminishing. Nationally, pupil numbers are rising, but recruitment is struggling to keep up and teachers are leaving the profession at an alarming rate. Pupil needs are changing, but many schools are ill-equipped to cope. It's no wonder that work-related stress surveys consistently rank schools and colleges as having some of the highest levels of staff absence due to stress.

  • Stress costs schools money where they already have none to spare.

  • Staff dissatisfaction impacts on pupil outcomes.

  • Workplace negativity affecting education will affect all of our futures.

The way in which head teachers respond to and support those dealing with stress is crucial, says Siôn Humphreys, who is policy advisor at the National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT).

At Fire Events, we have an in-house specialist who has worked in a vast range of education settings for over 25 years, both as a supply cover and permanent post teacher, and as a contributor to team or leadership development provision in public and commercial environments. Chantalle works with tiny rural schools, inner city multi-form entry schools, and everything in between. She has seen the best and the worst of education practice, and as a qualified Emotional Intelligence Practitioner, can often see where opportunities for improvement may have been overlooked, in terms of building positive relationships between staff, students, parents, and the wider community.

    DISCOVER

    We listen to you.

    We find out...

    ...what major challenges are already affecting teamwork and if there are others on the horizon. We explore your team's current resilience levels. We work with you to identify what impacts they are having on your group and its overall productivity levels.

    DESIGN

    We liaise with you.

    We create...

    ...a tailor-made staff meeting session, half-day, full day or ongoing programme of activities perfect for your group and budget. Designed to help you all manage challenge better, tasks are inclusive, inspiring, helpful, and they really open people's minds to how workplace practice can be improved.

    DO

    We fire you up...

    ... with carefully planned itineraries. We'll get you thinking, laughing, exploring new ways of working, talking to each other, maybe even achieving what seems impossible. Don't believe us? Come and see for yourself!

    DEVELOP

    We empower you.

    We help you to take off...

    ...and run with it! There's no point in us helping you to learn new things if you can't take them forwards all by yourselves. We give you as many tools as we can out of those you'll need to launch - and then it's up to you to fly.

      It makes no assumptions about what situation your workplace already has, or the training you may have already had.
