School Wellbeing Ambassadors

Wellbeing Ambassadors


Eikon’s ‘Wellbeing Ambassadors’ is a training Programme designed to amplify pupil voice on whole school wellbeing and empower young leaders to promote and support wellbeing within their school community.

If you are a Surrey school – thanks to funding from Surrey’s Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health Alliance, this programme is free to order. Eikon will attend your school to deliver a 2.5 – 3 hr workshop to train a group of pupils and offer follow-up support for the further development of Wellbeing Ambassadors in your school.

Schools outside of Surrey are welcome to purchase the training programme at a cost-effective price, which is delivered as a downloadable resource pack. A ‘training video’ link accompanies the pack to enable you to train pupils independently.

How does the Programme work?

With on-going 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.

Initial training is available from Years 3 – 13 and is designed to act as a springboard for improving the culture of whole school wellbeing. The workshop is interactive and involves plenty of time for discussion and sharing. To maximise the effectiveness of the programme you will need the full support of your SLT, and a named key contact who will attend the training and help your Wellbeing Ambassadors with their next steps.

After the initial session, our Eikon trainer will support your staff with follow-up resources and case studies to help provide a structure that enables wellbeing to remain a priority and really become part of the school culture. We also offer a review meeting to provide an opportunity to reflect on what has / hasn’t worked and to support the ongoing motivation of your Wellbeing Ambassador team.

To encourage the longevity of the programme within your school, we can provide a Resource Pack, which will enable you to train further pupils. We’re always happy to help you with this – just give us a call!

What is covered in the training?

Designed around the evidence-based framework of the Five Ways to Wellbeing, the initial Ambassador training is offered as a 2.5 – 3 hr workshop focusing 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 in their school and develop ideas for making improvements.

Following the training, schools will receive an enamel WOW (Ways of Wellbeing) badge for each Ambassador, our full Resource Pack and training video link (on request).

What Year groups do you offer training programmes for?

Eikon currently offer Wellbeing Ambassador training for:

Primary – Years 3, 4, 5 & 6

Secondary – Years 7, 8, 9,10,11

6th Form only – Years 12 & 13

A Wellbeing Ambassador promotes wellbeing in school through education, activities, events and whole school communication.

They do not offer 1-2-1 mentoring sessions with pupils.

The training is aimed at potential young leaders who may not yet have found an opportunity to have their voice heard in school, but who could contribute to promoting and supporting wellbeing within their school community with the right help. It’s essential that pupils are keen to attend the training and play a part in the plans that are developed on the day.

We recommend a minimum of 12 pupils and a maximum of 25.

Staff should invite pupils who show interest in supporting and promoting wellbeing at school. It is often beneficial to have a mix of year groups, so that pupils can hear about the different experiences of others in their school. Eikon does not recommend that whole year groups or whole classes are trained – think of your Ambassadors as a smaller team of diverse and inclusive representatives.
