We know that teaching is a stressful occpation. Stress in teaching can be caused by a range of factors such as poor student behaviour and workload demands, and this can cause anxiety and low mood.

Can you help us understand this better by taking part in an online research study which will identify the psychological factors underlying resilience to stress?  We appreciate that some individuals are more resilient than others and so will respond differently to stressful situation, but your participation in this study will allow us to develop interventions which will promote teacher trainee and teacher resilience and so help to prevent anxiety and low mood.

We are a research team based in King’s College London, and we are looking for Primary or Secondary school trainee teachers who have recently started training to take part in online research.

Our study is entirely online and involves completing quick and easy assessments at 2 different time points. The initial assessment takes about 25 minutes and would be completed in the first term of your teacher training. The second assessment is a 7 minute assessment during the first term of your NQT year.

We offer incentives for completing each assessment:

  • 1st assessment – 25 mins (during teacher training): you will be entered into a prize draw where you have the chance to win 1 of 5 £100, or 1 of 5 £50, Amazon vouchers.
  • 2nd assessment – 7 mins (NQT year): £8 Amazon voucher.
