WoW traffic light tool

The Well-being of the Workforce (WoW) team have developed a well-being traffic light self-audit tool, designed for all school staff to complete to help schools assess the culture and climate of well-being in their school in an objective and inclusive way.

The tool looks at issues such as strategic management culture, relationships, work demands and change.

The tool presents a series of statements about varying levels of well-being in a school context, for example: whether the staff member feels they have the right resources to do the job or whether they receive adequate training on new roles or responsibilities.  The staff member then rates each statement on a red’, amber and green basis.

A report is then generated which aims to help schools work closely with their staff to assess the current culture and performance in the school, and identify areas for development.

Feedback from schools about the self-audit tool has been very positive.

  • "The survey made it clear to us what we needed to focus our attention on."

  • "The survey highlighted where we are successful and gave us a lot to celebrate"

  • "I realised that I did not know exactly what all staff felt about working here!"

  • "It has been really useful in opening up staff discussion"

Please note that, as a facilitated tool administered by Education Personnel Services (EPS), there is a cost involved. To find out more about the WoW traffic light tool, or any of the other well-being tools, please contact on:
