Evaluation of an intervention to reduce burnout and improve well-being

You are invited to take part in a service evaluation project. Before you decide whether or not to participate, it is important for you to understand why the project is being done and what it will involve. Please read the following information carefully.

What is the project about?

Research shows that occupational burnout has a negative impact upon psychological well-being and physical health, as well as being associated with poorer job performance.

The Chimp Paradox is a mind management approach that offers practical strategies and skills for individuals to: (1) gain insight into how their mind is working; (2) understand and recognise their thoughts, behaviours and emotions; (3) better manage themselves to become the person they would like to be. There have been a number of small pilot studies using this model with groups of NHS staff. These have shown preliminary indicators that the model could lead to improvements in the quality of life and wellbeing of the NHS in both their personal and professional lives. This has not yet been done in those working in the teaching profession.

In this project, we will invite teaching staff to access and 8-week course based on the The Chimp Paradox. You will be asked to complete a questionnaire to measure your levels of burnout four times during the project: before training, at the start of training, at the end of training, and 8 weeks later. This will enable us to assess if teaching staff well-being can be increased, and if burnout levels can be reduced.

Please click the “OK” button to confirm your consent to participate, followed by “next” to progress on to the questionnaire. You will be prompted to provide your email address once you begin the questionnaire, so that we can ask you to complete the survey again at a later stage.

All information entered in the survey will remain confidential.
