Education and Training is ranked 7 out of 19 in terms of workplace mental health and wellbeing in 2021. It has a Thriving Workplace score of 65.8, which is just above the National average of 65.6.
This is an industry that has seen a lot of pivoting from onsite to offsite learning across the year and it is not usual to see the scores across 4 out of the 5 domains to have dropped due to the extraneous work conditions.
The Policy domain has slightly risen, showing effective guidelines are available, however with a drop in connectedness and capability suggests this is not evidenced from the ground level, leaving workers reporting they do not feel respected, or that other people care. Reflecting this culture, is a further decline in culture and in the leadership score.
