Early Career Teacher Program
Recruiting and retaining good teachers is vital. Staff resignations and retirements have led to shortages and the appointment of many graduates. Working in schools can be challenging. The first three years are especially challenging for early career teachers. We have all heard the statistics of staff turnover in the first years of teaching. If early career teachers don’t have the skills and knowledge to manage their own well-being they are at serious risk.
Our NEW Happy Teacher - Early Career program is based on our very successful Happy School program but is tailored specifically to the needs of beginning teachers.
How It Works
Register each of your early career teachers in the program, and they will receive weekly articles specific to their well-being needs at that stage of their journey and that stage of the term. Specific year-long programs have been designed for teachers in each of their first, second and third years of teaching. CLICK TO VIEW Article Schedule
Weekly articles provide guidance and support to help them look after their own well-being and survive the demands of teaching. Early career teachers can easily become overwhelmed with information and competing priorities.
Our program is about keeping it short and specific to their well-being needs.
The WEEKLY articles will provide …
- strategies to improve well-being and reduce stress
- skills to better use time
- maintain a positive attitude
- work well with others; and
- improve work-life balance
$690 + gst for one teacher
$1380 + gst per school (up to 5 early career teachers)
$2990 + gst per school (6 + early career teachers)
Additional teachers can be added at any stage.

Happy Teacher and Happy School were developed by leading Australian educator Steve Francis. Steve is an in-demand speaker for conferences and professional development programs in schools. He has been a leading educator and Principal for 20 years having led schools in Queensland, Australia and Hong Kong. He currently works with a range of schools and corporate clients.
Steve developed the Happy School program in response to concerns about the rising level of teacher stress and the affect poor staff morale was having on student learning. His Master's research focused on Teacher Stress. The Happy School articles are written by Steve and a range of other experts who work with schools.
