Staff Training Days

Woodland Wellbeing CPD & Inset Days for Teachers

At Inside Out we understand the importance of our physical and emotional health. When we have good levels of wellbeing we feel that life is in balance and that we can generally cope well. We feel motivated and engaged, we're resilient and able to deal effectively with daily troubles, as well as "bounce back" from life's challenges.

Our Woodland Wellbeing Days focus on the mental health of educational practitioners through outdoor mindfulness in nature that fosters positive appraisals, recognition and the development of a sense of belonging.

What are the benefits?

Our sessions are focused on education professionals, including headteachers, NQTs and support staff, working across from early years to primary to secondary, FE and adult education. 

We offer activities including:
  • environmental art and crafts
  • bush craft
  • campfire cooking and foraging
  • mindfulness in nature
Positive staff wellbeing is an essential part of cultivating a mentally healthy school. Staff demonstrate greater motivation, higher levels of performance and job satisfaction, reduced absence and an increase in productivity and staff engagement.

New Venue - Woods for Hire

If you are interested in running any sessions from a private site, we have recently collaborated with a farm in Romiley, Stockport which has acres of land and a small patch of woodland which would be perfect to run Eco therapy sessions from. 

There is also accommodation on site for up to 10 guests. This would suit hiking parties, First Aid courses. Art/craft weekends, wellbeing retreats (yoga courses). 

 If you are interested, please get in touch with Esther via phone or email and we can give you more details.
