A free wellbeing support service is being opened to college principals and their deputies amid low take-up among school headteachers.

Education Support was contracted in November 2021 to support 2,000 school headteachers by March this year through six one-hour, free peer support sessions, or one to-one support or counselling.

The £760,000 programme has been extended by a year after only reaching about half of its target in schools.

From April, college principals, their deputies and senior leaders reporting to the principal will also become eligible.
