Essential Resilience for Teachers


The training provides practical experience of the core resilience skills in the context of building a thriving school environment. This day is a thorough introduction to resilience and why it should become the foundation to health education as part of a broad curriculum that meets the needs of students. Teachers gain an understanding of the core resilience skills and how to use them to best effect personally, and how they can transfer this knowledge to engage with, and support their students and colleagues.
