A research team from Kings College London is looking for participants to trial their new intervention!

We know that teaching is a stressful occupation. Teacher training is an important stage that prepares you to teach, but it can still be stressful sometimes. Past research has found that stress in teacher training and teaching can be caused by a range of factors, such as poor student behaviour and workload demands, which can cause anxiety and low mood.

Over the past years, our research team has been identifying the psychological factors underlying resilience to stress. In order to develop an intervention that best fits your needs, the research team worked closely with previous trainee cohorts and designed their intervention based on their feedback. Now, they are excited to launch a web-based online intervention that will promote teacher trainee and teacher resilience and so help to reduce stress and prevent anxiety and low mood.

They are looking for trainee teachers who have recently started a full-time teacher training course leading to a Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) in the UK to take part in this study.

The web-based intervention is offered to you for free and is entirely online and self-paced to fit your busy schedules.

To thank you for your time and contribution, eligible completers of the study will be entered into a prize draw (to win 1 of 10 £20 gift voucher) upon completion of the study.

If you are interested in taking part, you will first complete an initial survey online.
