Abstract

Recent reports indicate the increasingly poor state of teacher wellbeing that is contributing to teacher recruitment and retention challenges. Science teachers are more likely to leave the profession than colleagues in other subjects, hence supporting their wellbeing should be a priority. We describe two strands of our work: first, a novel approach to supporting the wellbeing of trainee secondary science teachers and, second, initial findings from a pilot study in which a range of teachers, including science teachers, were interviewed about their wellbeing and the support available to them. We conclude by discussing our aim to further develop science teacher-focused wellbeing support.
