These development days are designed to support local authorities to engage schools to improve wellbeing and social mobility in an area. Bounce Forward sets up, manages and hosts introductory development days on resilience on behalf of the local authority or CCG. The purpose is to demonstrate the importance of building resilience skills for both teachers and staff. Bounce Forward takes responsibility for inviting neighbouring schools to the development days. These follow the same format as our Essentials for Staff development day.
