Why take this course?
“Resilience is both the capacity of individuals to navigate their way to the psychological, social, cultural, and physical resources that sustain their well being, and their capacity individually and collectively to negotiate for these resources to be provided and experienced in culturally meaningful ways." Ungar, 2008
For a school, this means putting in place supportive, resilient structures and introducing creative strategies which support all members of the school community.
Building resilience is not a simple task. It needs the understanding and commitment of the whole school community. This course allows staff the opportunity to explore what building resilience really means in their unique context and how to go about it in a structured way. Staff will examine everyday hurdles as well as explore effective reflective approaches.
A bespoke course aimed at empowering your school to develop your own whole school approach to resilience - it will enable you to put theory into practice and help support your staff and pupils.
