Building Resilience and a Positive Mindset with Expert Training and Coaching

Teachers play a significant role in the education and development of children and teens. Having a positive and supportive role model in the classroom when times get tough can be a lifeline for some students. Guidance without judgment is often all they need to overcome growing-up anxieties.

Did you know that almost half of young people with fewer than five GCSEs at A* to C said they ‘always’ or ‘often’ felt down or depressed compared with 30% of those who were more qualified, according to the Prince’s Trust reports?

The Back on Track Teens ‘Building Resilience and a Positive Mindset’ programme offers practical and emotional support for your school community to thrive.

Empowering Teachers and Support Staff

Teachers train to educate and inspire students, but post-pandemic demands, increased admin and regulation can pull them further away from their nurturing role.

Resilience is one of the vital qualities everyone needs to be flexible, healthy and happy. It is the number one thing that will reduce stress and improve mental health.

‘Building Resilience and a Positive Mindset’ Programme Content

‘Building Resilience and a Positive Mindset’ is an interactive, behavioural training solution designed explicitly for education teams to improve ‘bounce back-ability’ – their ability and that of their students.

The programme introduces a range of practical tools and techniques that create a positive and collaborative environment between staff, students and parents where the teachers lead by example. Giving teachers the skills to improve their emotional wellbeing and resilience can be replicated and nurtured across the entire school to foster a healthy, thriving community.

I have just received a fantastic report from Matthew’s science teacher.

I just wanted to thank you, it is since he has seen you that his attitude has matured and he has become an independent learner, who wants to succeed at school and do well in his subjects.

Thank you again.
