Training places available for how to
foster wellbeing in the school community
Due to demand, we are running a second summer training
course for primary school teachers in Cork.
Our DES-approved ABLE4Teachers training aims to foster
well-being in the school community by helping teachers to build more responsive
The course runs from the 19th – 23rd
August at Cork Education Support Centre (CESC), The Rectory, Western Rd, Mardyke,
Based on our ABLE (Adopt, Build, Listen & Empower)
model, the training helps teachers to boundary and manage conversations with
parents, colleagues and pupils, as well as providing resources to foster whole
school relational wellbeing and job satisfaction.
Dr Maeve Hurley, founder of Ag Eisteacht, said: “There
are moments of opportunity in every school day when knowing how to engage
sensitively and respond appropriately will foster better relationships
throughout the whole school community.
“Just listening actively and showing compassion can
make a difference.
“Our DES-approved ABLE4Teachers training gives teachers
the framework, tools and confidence to manage conflict and respond to signals
of distress from parents, colleagues and pupils using our brief intervention
model. Recognising that relationships are a key social determinant of health
and wellbeing, it provides insights to help teachers to empower their pupils
also to relate better.”
Custom-designed for teachers, ABLE4Teachers training
shares insight into evidence-based knowledge of the impact of family
relationships, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), early brain development,
conflict and toxic stress have on children’s health and well-being.
98% of previous participants said they would recommend
the course to a colleague.
The five-day course is heavily subsidised by Ag
Eisteacht, and the only cost for teachers is a €50 administration fee.
Bookings for the Cork courses are now being taken by Cork Education Support Centre www.cesc.ie
“The course demonstrates how the fostering of healthy relationships with peers, teachers and school staff is essential to pupils’ positive experience of school and their cognitive and emotional development.”
