Family Growth Mindset Scheme Course


This course could be delivered at your school / organisation. Contact us for more detail.

The Family Growth Mindset Scheme is designed to promote growth mindset within the home environment to raise standards and aspirations of children/young people and families in order to boost the potential of all students within school. This is the next effective step after implementing the mindset theory of Professor Carol Dweck in your school to ensure sustainability and outcomes.
