PROJECT OVERVIEW

Building Resilience In Schools

Increasing student behaviour & academics. Reducing signs of poor mental health. Boosting school culture.

The challenge

The secondary schools we worked with, wanted to equip their school communities with the vocational skills to bring about better learning, emotional stability, stronger relationships and personal success for their students.

How we helped

We delivered our award-winning resilience programme to Year 10, Year 11 and Year 12 students, and the parents and teachers who provide the support network around them.

The programme introduced a skillset and common language in which the school community could thrive, and successfully navigate the pressures and stresses of everyday life.

This unique and innovative programme, based on building resilient students, parents and teachers, has helped build better learning, emotional stability, stronger relationships and personal success for our students. Above all, it has introduced them to a common language and a means of communication that has enabled our students, our staff and parents to better understand their own wellbeing and to cope with the pressures and stresses of the everyday demands in their busy lives.”

Hours gained per year due to uplift in productivity
As a teacher, I thought that a high stress environment with limited time and resource was inevitable. As a senior member of staff I have benefited from this programme both professionally and personally. I'm now much less stressed and much more effective. The great thing is that the skills are easy to use and transferable. It's enabled me to introduce the skills to those around me, resulting in a much happier and much more productive place to work.”

Improved Relationships

Game Changing Outcomes

From day one, the school community began communicating with a new language and applying new skills to existing challenges.

Students were asked to document their journey and both parents and teachers were regularly consulted on changing dynamics and relationships. 

The single biggest change that everyone noticed was a sustainable and positive change in relationships, trust and behaviour.

% of students reporting an increased ability to:
manage difficult relationships & conflict 95%
% of teachers reporting increased:
engagement levels 67%
% of teachers seeing a direct link
between the skills and mental health 100%
% of parents reporting increased ability to:
make better decisions & solve problems 98%
It is clear there are opportunities and outcomes that would not only enable us as a community to tackle mental health issues but also create confidence and challenge in a world that is constantly changing. It provides a toolkit for life that could be a game-changer for how we support younger generations into the future.”
