From education to employment

GCS and You – our new health and wellbeing strategy

Gower College Swansea is committed to providing a healthy working and learning environment to improve the lives and the futures of its community. For this reason, we are delighted to be launching a new health and wellbeing strategy, GCS and You, which provides a broad framework to enhance the health and wellbeing of both our employees and learners.

We already have a number of policies, services and initiatives in place to support the development of a positive, healthy and motivated workforce and student community. GCS and You provides a joint approach to employee and learner wellbeing by:

  1. Developing a positive environment and embedding a culture of wellbeing
  2. Providing healthy lifestyle choices which meet the needs of our diverse community
  3. Providing a range of flexible services to support positive health and wellbeing
  4. Providing curriculum and professional development opportunities for personal growth and development

To set this strategy in motion, in addition to our weekly wellbeing activities, we have arranged Spotlight Weeks for our students, focussing on topics such as sleep hygiene, relationships and sexual health, drugs and alcohol, healthy eating and staying active, futures and digital health. We are also holding a Drug and Alcohol Awareness Session for parents on Wednesday 3 February.
