NESLI Launch Partnership with Education Heads in Finland 

NESLI is excited to announce that the Staff Wellbeing Toolkit has been adopted by the Finnish Association of Principals and is to be implemented throughout Finland – one of the world’s leading education systems.

The announcement comes just days after NESLI launched the Staff Wellbeing Toolkit at Finland’s National Conference for School Principals. The Staff Wellbeing Toolkit is a direct response to the international Principal Health & Wellbeing Survey, which points directly to the need for global school leaders to attend to occupational health, safety and wellbeing within the workplace.

NESLI’s Staff Wellbeing Toolkit is designed to help schools create a professional climate which is conducive to the optimal health and wellbeing of all staff. Attending to the health and wellbeing of school employees is a global concern, and one that the Finnish education system takes seriously. In rolling out the Toolkit, NESLI will be collaborating with Dr. Philip Riley and the Board of the Finnish Association of Principals.

According to Damian Farrell, CEO of NESLI; “This exciting partnership illustrates the potential for Australia to take quality education solutions onto the world stage.”

Since its launch in 2017, the Staff Wellbeing Toolkit has been undertaken by almost 6,000 individuals from over 240 Australian schools. Additionally, the program has been adopted by the Northern Territory Department of Education, as well as numerous Catholic dioceses. It is also being delivered to schools across New Zealand in partnership with CORE Education.

Dr Anna Dabrowski, Director of Education and Evaluation, emphasises the importance of the Staff Wellbeing Toolkit on the education profession. “Based on the responses of more than 2,700 participants, our data indicates that Australian educators are time poor, unhealthy, anxious, and lonely.  Yet after completing the toolkit, 97% of participating schools reported to have improved their wellbeing and social capital levels. Toolkit graduates speak of  improved relationships in the workplace, higher rates of job satisfaction, reduced anxiety and stress, and higher levels of happiness.”
