Are you an enthusiastic teacher who sometimes feels tired? Do you encounter misunderstandings with colleagues, management, parents or pupils? Join us on the path of psychohygiene and joint teacher collegial support on the way to streamline communication and relieve stress. Get ready to work on yourself, but you will also get new tools to solve everyday situations in your job.

The project aims to introduce and expand peer support and mentoring using an internal systemic approach to education in the Czech Republic through facilitated workshops with subsequent supervision and preparation of internal mentors.

Peer support has been implemented in 12 schools, the workshops were attended by 150 teachers. The project also included the preparation of 18 internal mentors in 9 schools. As a support for workshops, methodical sheets containing both, theory and reflective questions were developed during the project. 

In September 2020, a dissemination conference SHARING MATTERS on peer support and mentoring using a systemic approach at school was held. If you are interested in the topic, feel free to download Conference Proceedings (unfortunately only in Czech).
