The Wellbeing Toolkit uses two tools that provide schools/centres with broad measures of both wellbeing and social capital in the participating group.
The first is the Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Wellbeing Scale which is used to measure the mental, social and functional well-being. This is a well-established 14 item scale across five response categories covering feeling and functional aspects of wellbeing that has been applied extensively worldwide.
The second is a Finnish model of social capital which clearly identifies end points that create vertical and horizontal social capital (across the organisation). Applied to a base of 150,000 public sector employees in Finland over a period of 15 years, the tool is robust with longitudinal data and well-documented health endpoints.
All survey results are anonymous and used to provide individual schools/centres with broad measures of wellbeing and social capital before and after the Wellbeing Toolkit application.
