Enhancing Wellbeing Through ELATT's Holistic Education Approach

Enhancing Wellbeing Through ELATT's Holistic Education Approach

ELATT, a registered educational charity dedicated to addressing inequality challenges in London, goes beyond providing educational resources for adult students. With a holistic approach to education, ELATT also prioritizes the wellbeing of its students. We are proud to introduce the Wellbeing Service, offering safe and ethical assistance to students’ wellbeing under clinical supervision.

ELATT’s Wellbeing Service: Supporting Your Journey

Our Wellbeing Service (WBS), led by trained experts, meets students where they are and collaboratively works towards fulfilling their needs. Our qualified wellbeing officers specialize in counselling skills, yoga, mindfulness, and creative therapies. Through group workshops and 1:1 sessions, we aim to help students manage stress, improve their physical and mental health, and enhance their overall wellbeing.

The service was founded on the principles of meeting students where they and co-producing the service to meet their needs. Co-production is implemented by regular student feedback, student surveys and interventions to gather information at regular intervals. The most useful advocacy for student voice is to have a student volunteer, and student workshop leaders. These ensure live feedback and input directly from the student base.

Group Workshops: Building Connections and Empowering Individuals

Our group workshops cover topics such as physical and mental health, art, practical tips on wellbeing, and the opportunity to share experiences with peers. These workshops provide emotional support and fresh perspectives, empowering adults in education to improve their self-esteem. By learning new things and sharing their experiences, individuals find a sense of purpose and increased self-esteem, fostering a greater sense of community and connection.

1:1 Sessions: Personalized Support for Meaningful Progress

In our 1:1 sessions, students receive personalized attention to address their specific needs. From stress management to coping strategies and overall quality of life improvement, our Wellbeing Service ensures tailored support for each student’s journey toward better mental health. Our Wellbeing Officers, receive supervision from a qualified supervisor to maintain ethical guidelines and ensure safe practise.

Volunteer Opportunities: Make a Meaningful Impact by Sharing Your Skills and Talents

The success of our regular workshops depends on the dedicated volunteers of the Wellbeing Service. Alongside internal support, we welcome professionals from outside ELATT to share their skills and talents, creating a well-rounded education experience. Moreover, ELATT students have the chance to become workshop leaders themselves, contributing their valuable skills. If you have a passion for giving back and want to make a difference, the WBS offers a volunteer opportunity where you can learn new skills and gain experience in the mental health and wellbeing field.

At ELATT, we value student wellbeing as the foundation of learning. With trained experts supporting our holistic approach, we ensure that our students receive comprehensive support for their mental health and overall wellbeing. We encourage all ELATT adult students to take advantage of our Wellbeing Service and benefit from this invaluable resource.
