Your wellbeing is a combination of your personal, physical, emotional, mental, and social factors.  It is about how you feel about your life and yourself, and is linked strongly to happiness and satisfaction. 

Having tools and strategies to reduce stress, anxiety, burnout, and improve your productivity are all important to your success and wellbeing as a student.   

At TAFE SA, wellbeing week is about providing you with some self-help resources, as well as connecting you with activities and online presentations to help you get started. 

Get Involved in Wellbeing Week:

Online Presentations

Focussed support for Apprentices and Tradies

We spend many hours a week at work, and we may spend more time with out workmates than anyone else.  Work 'mates' can often notice when we are doing it tough, because we send out signals telling them something isn't quite right.

There are many organisations out there to support apprentices and trainees, so get in touch and see how they can help.

Check out this short video from MatesInConstruction to help you learn about the support they can provide to our trade students.  And remember to visit the Student Orientation and Support Learn Course for more information about programs and services available to support you!
