Satchel is joined by education expert, Jon Tait, for this webinar on the role that ‘Meaningful Work’ plays in influencing staff wellbeing.
One of the 8 core pillars of staff wellbeing, ‘Meaningful work’ refers to how staff knowing that their work is having a positive effect on the lives of their students, and that they are making a difference influences their wellbeing.
Jon Tait is Deputy CEO and Director of School Improvement at a multi-academy trust in North Yorkshire as well as a four-time published education author and international speaker.

We’ve now worked with hundreds of schools who are joining our monthly cohorts. There are still spaces left for November and December - It’s a fantastic time to gain understanding of wellbeing now and start making real positive changes in the new year.
Satchel Pulse uses automated surveys to build a picture of school wellbeing. We base these surveys on several key areas of wellbeing, also called Pillars. These Pillars represent the building blocks of that bigger picture, the core elements that make up school life. By breaking down wellbeing into Pillars, Satchel Pulse is able to give you detailed insights on the different aspects of wellbeing at the same time as ensuring the bigger picture is as comprehensive as possible.
Satchel Pulse combines extensive research with industry insights to develop the Pillars for each group. They are based on literature reviews, interviews with education professionals, expert input and analysis of existing frameworks.
Satchel has teamed up with education expert Jon Tait to create monthly webinars that deep dive into these 8 key areas or ‘pillars’ of staff wellbeing. Gain insight into why each pillar is important, learn how to monitor staff sentiment in that area and receive actionable wellbeing strategies to improve staff wellbeing.

The most engaged and fulfilled staff feel that they fit in well and share the beliefs, mission and values of the school.
Most staff are motivated by career development, expecting to learn new skills and gain more responsibility as they progress.
Staff need to know that issues are being dealt with effectively by management and that the school is consistently trying to improve.
Staff need to know that their work is having a positive effect on the lives of their students, and that they are making a difference.
