A brief summary of why you have become a healthy workplace:

Working in education is a demanding experience. Sometimes we can become so focussed in improving the life chances of our young people that if we are not careful we can neglect to look after ourselves. Bodmin College believes that its staff are the key to the pupils' success and being a healthy workplace is crucial to this.

Recent Health & Wellbeing activities on offer (this year):

We have worked on mental wellbeing and hosted a very successful 'Time to change, time to talk' event. Facilities for staff to be active at work have improved massively and include turbo trainers, gym and staff showers. We have also ensured consistency in the way absence is treated for all staff.

 Plans/Aims for the next year:

  • Back Pain & Prevention
  • Healthier Eating including Healthy Weight
  • Mental Wellbeing & Stress Reduction

I am delighted that we have achieved the Silver award and I would like to pay tribute to the hard work of our development team, but also the whole staff who have embraced both the opportunities and challenges presented to them.

Employee Feedback

"Within 6 months of signing up the enthusiasm and potential of how we can promote Health and Wellbeing throughout the College has taken hold and now after receiving our Bronze, 2014 is looking to be a very exciting year.  The Award programme has enabled us to look into what our staff would like to access and benefit from in the future and ultimately will help towards maintaining a happy, healthy and motivated workforce"- Rebecca Smith, Truro and Penwith College
