Wellbeing and Mental Health

As the world changes rapidly all around us, it’s more essential than ever to pay attention to our physical and mental wellbeing.

With increasing amounts of uncertainty in our lives, combined with new work routines and less human connection, there are real and present threats to the long term mental health of anybody not prepared to take proactive measures.

One of the most vulnerable groups is apprentices, many of whom may have recently transitioned out of education and into the workplace. Even for those further into an apprenticeship programme will be at higher risk, with potentially less contact time, supervision and support.

Now is the time to increase the support, not just for professional development but for the soft skills such as resilience, wellbeing, stress management and emotional intelligence.
