News and Support from The NASUWT
An Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) is a way of supporting employees during sickness. Companies buy into these programmes in the hope of getting some economic benefit when their workers return to work, from sickness, quicker than they normally would do. That’s very simplified.
This article suggests there may be other more sinister motives behind EAP, and the use of CBT.
I am aware of academies using paid for EAP. You may be better advised to make use of the Education Support Partnership, and stay well away from your school’s EAP provider.
