Chatteris and Nord Anglia Webinars

Introduction

Chatteris Educational Foundation has been collaborating with Nord Anglia University since 2020. Every year we deliver online professional learning activities for educators that are meaningful and relevant to teachers in the local and international sectors. This year we will offer eight professional development webinars across the academic year. All sessions are free to attend and attendees will receive a certificate of participation for their professional development records.

Chatteris Educational Foundation is the only educational charity in Hong Kong that connects local schools with international graduates and community partners in order to best impact students across the region. With our team of 100 tutors from across the globe we partner with schools to develop an English environment for their students; support a range of community outreach projects; and develop our tutors by providing educational, professional, and NGO experience. Collaboration is a core value at Chatteris. We are very glad to collaborate with Nord Anglia University (Asia) to create such a collaborative community.

Nord Anglia International School is a through-school that operates in 3 campuses across Hong Kong and is part of the Nord Anglia Education group of 68 schools across the world. Nord Anglia believes in the value of free high-quality professional development for teachers. To achieve this, their professional development platform, Nord Anglia University (Asia), creates learning events and opportunities for educators from all sectors to share ideas, research, practice and resources together.

About the webinar:

Taking care of ourselves is often much easier said than done. The benefits of self-care are cumulative, as are the signs of the absence of it, and we often seek quick-fixes in the face of less than desirable results instead of seeing the long-term benefit of small steps every day. As humans, we are highly capable of internal language that compels us to keep going forward in the face of signs of distress. Burnout is often the first time that most people who live high pressured lives recognise the wake-up call that they need to do something differently. In this sharing, these concepts will be explored from the perspective of managing wellbeing as an ongoing concept, whether you are feeling fine, are in distress and burnt-out, or somewhere in between. Come to refresh basic concepts about what health can be and explore some ideas about how you can make your own menu of little steps that can have a big and positive effect in your life.
