About this course

Do you want to learn techniques and approaches in order to be able to help young people to improve their emotional wellbeing and resilience?

Do you want to be able to help young people face challenges with confidence and self-belief?

This is an essential course for any member of staff working with young people in schools, whether as a classroom teacher, a member of the support staff or in a coaching role.  With several government agendas now focused on the emotional wellbeing of young people, it is now essential for all adults that work with children to be aware of how they can best build confidence and resilience.  The terms ‘wellbeing’ and ‘resilience’ are frequently used when discussing the difficulties that are faced by young people today; this course offers practical ‘tried-and-tested’ techniques that can be used by adults in any setting to help build self-confidence and effective coping strategies.
