Episode 8 | Working together to enact change for Early Years educators with Dr Steph Ainsworth 

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Alistair Bryce-Clegg and Dr Steph Ainsworth return for a final episode covering their discussion so far on teacher resilience and work/life balance.  

Practical tips for practitioners

Alistair and Steph look at the broader policy context of what we can do to help teacher resilience. They discuss the idea of a more flexible curriculum, where teachers have more autonomy within their role. Adopting a child-centered approach is also broached. 

They wrap up the topic by emphasising the importance of a culture of resilience, and reinforcing how to build resilience on an individual level through self-compassion and having access to the right resources.
