Abstract The broad aims of this project were to introduce an approach for the management of work-related stress in the education sector and to demonstrate how this approach could have an impact on organizational well-being. It was conducted in public sector schools of two regions of the United Kingdom. The programme was shown to offer an effective risk assessment for stress. According to the end-of-programme school evaluation questionnaire, it has raised awareness of the HSE Management Standards; raised awareness of factors that affect staff well-being; supported staff to take personal responsibility for their own well-being; encouraged an atmosphere in which staff groups feel able to contribute to the promotion of well being.
