The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) for teachers is a jointly sponsored effort between NLTA, the provincial government, and the School Boards Association. It is in place to assist teachers who may be experiencing personal or work-related problems that could affect work performance. It is designed to provide confidential help at the earliest possible time before problems become more serious. The kinds of issues addressed by the EAP include, but are not limited to: marital and family, work and personal stress, financial, substance abuse/addictions, career, health concerns, and grief and loss.
The NLTA has a commitment to the promotion of the professional excellence and personal well-being of teachers. Whether just entering the profession, in mid-career or near retirement, increased societal expectations of teachers, major restructuring of educational programs and reduction in educational funding are now combining to make teaching a more challenging and perhaps a more exciting endeavour than it has ever been. The Association is responding to the personal, professional and informational needs experienced at each career stage so that teachers can remain healthy in this profession. The Professional Development programs of the Association are designed to assist teachers in this endeavour while restoring individual and collective pride in the teaching force of Newfoundland and Labrador.
