According to research, teaching is among the top three most stressful occupations. Stress is becoming an increasing problem in the education sector, a problem with far-reaching consequences.
Research shows many teachers suffer from stress related issues including:
- Health problems
- Mental health issues
- Poor job satisfaction
As a result schools will be impacted by teachers’ stress through:
- Negative impact on teaching and learning outcomes
- Increased sick leave
- Increasing turnover rates
