We define well-being as:
“ what people think and feel about their lives, such as the quality of their relationships, their positive emotions and resilience, the realisation of their potential, or their overall satisfaction with life. Well-being integrates mental health (mind) and physical health (body). “
Just as teachers care about their student’s well-being, we care about our teachers well-being. This means making sure our teachers:
- have choices about the work they do
- make their own decisions
- are in control of what they do
We know teachers have the resilience to handle what comes their way; mix and meet with greater ease and confidence; form strong relationships and have much greater involvement in their teaching experiences when they have high levels of well-being.
Forming connections and bonding with like minded teachers helps their well-being. Our DJM Photo gallery shows how our teachers connect to London & to other teachers. This is how they share teaching & life experiences; form friendships & organise travel plans together.

” firstly I would like to thank you for everything you have done for me before and during my move to the UK. Moving overseas can be a scary thing and it was nice to know I was working for a teaching agency who actually cared about the teachers they teachers they had working for them. The support you gave me through out my time in London and helping me create a friendship base by putting me with other teachers and having social functions, I think goes above & beyond what is expected of you running a teaching agency. Thank you! ”
