A self-paced course to aid educators with their mental health and wellbeing
by PRP Group, on 09/26/2022
EmpowerU’s Educator Self-Care and Resilience Training is a self-paced, on-demand course featuring a personal coach designed to help teachers understand themselves, focus on their mental health, recognize their strengths, and set goals. Lessons are delivered via any internet connected device in bite-sized pieces—most only require 15-20 minutes to complete—so that educators can fit their learning into short settings whenever they have time. Requiring approximately 10-12 clock hours in total, most educators complete the course in 4-6 weeks.
Since its launch, thousands of educators have taken the course, with 80 percent of participants opting to include virtual coaching by EmpowerU’s trained, master degreed clinicians. These coaches provide online, asynchronous support that helps educators apply what they learn to their own lives so they can improve their wellbeing first, then pass that learning on to their students. Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive:
- 99 percent of participants said it was helpful to their wellbeing, motivation, and mental health.
- 98 percent of respondents said the support they received daily from their EmpowerU instructor was important to their growth.
- 97 percent said they would recommend the course to other colleagues.
- 100 percent made progress toward their goals, leaving them more engaged and renewed for the upcoming school year.
