ESC Emphasises Staff Wellbeing Through Series of Events

Canine Concern’s wellbeing dogs

As part of the College’s Staff Development and Wellbeing Week, East Sussex College planned a range of activities for staff to get involved in.

Staff Development and Wellbeing Week (4 July - 7 July) aimed to promote and draw a focus to the many facets of wellbeing, and the ever-growing importance of looking after the mental and physical effects of daily life.

East Sussex College recognised the ever-present importance of promoting staff wellbeing. On Thursday 7 July, staff at each of the College’s campuses in Eastbourne, Hastings and Lewes, had the opportunity to take a moment to think about their wellbeing and get involved with a range of activities.

Some of the activities available to staff included a meeting with Canine Concern’s wellbeing dogs, fitness and wellbeing sessions, mindfulness sessions, and various other online and in-person sessions focused around staff development and wellbeing.

The visit from Canine Concern at the College’s Eastbourne and Lewes campuses proved a huge favourite among staff as they took time out of their day to receive some additional wellbeing!

Rebecca Conroy, CEO and Principal at East Sussex College, outlined the importance of recognising staff wellbeing and said, “Including a range of wellbeing activities as part of our CPD week was an important way to send a clear signal to our team that mental fitness and mental health really matter at East Sussex College.

“We want to push what we do as a College to support people, and creating time to have open conversations about how we do this is vital.”
