Wellbeing Ambassadors is a programme funded by Surrey’s Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health Alliance, designed to amplify pupil voice on whole school wellbeing. The programme empowers young leaders to promote and support wellbeing within their school community through education, activities, events, and whole-school communication.
For schools based in Surrey, Eikon provides a free in-person workshop and follow-up resources to support the development of Wellbeing Ambassadors from year 3-13 in your school. For schools outside Surrey, we provide a cost-effective downloadable resource and video link to complete the training independently.
Designed around the evidence-based framework of the Five Ways to Wellbeing, the training focuses on three areas:
- 1. Introducing the framework of the Five Ways to Wellbeing to help pupils explore what wellbeing is, why it’s important, and how to improve it.
- 2. Clarifying the role of a Wellbeing Ambassador and understanding what support is available, both in and out of school.
- 3. Providing an opportunity to hear pupil voices about wellbeing priorities in their school and using this to develop ideas and next steps for making improvements.
With support from a designated member of your staff, the programme aim is to develop Wellbeing Ambassadors who have the knowledge, skills, and confidence to initiate and lead activities, campaigns, and events that ultimately create a positive, supportive, and resilient environment at school
