Research reports

An overwhelming majority of the UK’s education professionals say they have suffered physical and mental health issues as a result of their jobs according to our latest annual Health Survey by YouGov.

Our 2015 survey uncovers an ‘epidemic’ of mental health issues as 84% of those working in education admit to suffering problems, with workload to blame in 81% of cases.

In 2014, new legislation gave education staff new responsibilities for identifying and reporting signs of radicalisation. At Education Support Partnership we want to ensure you are fully supported with this new responsibility.
