SPOTLIGHTERS – what can we do with students’ stress?

SPOTLIGHTERS Erasmus + (2018–2021) project aims to inform educators and students of the
potential long-terms effects of stress and provides them with the competences to reduce these
potential complications from arising.

Students experience stress but most are not taught how to manage their stress effectively and their
poor self-regulatory behaviours persist into adulthood affecting quality of life and contributions to
society.

Excessive stress combined with poor stress management affects students and teachers at all levels
of education
