Are your students struggling to deal with challenges or change at home, school, college or in the community?
Are you finding it difficult to support and guide them through these difficult situations?
If the answer is yes to either of these questions, then this programme is for you.
'Be Resilient! Practical ways to Develop Resilient Pupils/Students' is a simple approach to supporting and developing student resilience. The outcome? They feel stronger, more capable and able to bounce forward in challenging situations. By downloading this activity pack, you’ll have access to practical strategies and ideas that can give you, an education professional, the confidence and skills to support this essential area of student development. The sessions can be used step by step or as and when needed depending on the group or individual. Example themes include, ‘When the going gets tough!’, ‘I’m possible!’ and ‘Resilience warriors!’. Student resilience is just as important as academic learning and well-being so let’s get started!
