Our Achieving Wellbeing Programme is a comprehensive package aimed at securing better education outcomes through staff and learner wellbeing. This CPD package enables a school to chose a specific aspect of our trauma-informed development package, updated specifically to address emerging Covid-19 issues and challenges. These resources include comprehensive CPD materials to improve behaviours for learning, attendance and wellbeing.

Brief description

Simply put, an anxious, frightened or angry mind will not learn. This Programme helps teaching professionals to understand what they can do to create a learning environment that supports and nurtures high levels of emotional wellbeing. This Programme offers education settings a comprehensive set of complementary strategies and approaches to unlock academic progress and lifelong achievement by improving the emotional wellbeing and mental health of an education setting.

By addressing the climate and culture of the classroom, developing professional understanding of the impact of childhood trauma and neglect, and building core strength within cohorts of identified learners, barriers to progress will be dismantled.

We hope this Programme will be a powerful tool to raise the levels of emotional wellbeing amongst staff as well children, helping to retain experienced professionals and support new entrants to the profession in equal measure.

Intended Impact

  • Professionals serving your learning community (teachers, learning support practitioners, senior leaders and governors) become more aware of the distinction between emotional wellbeing and mental health, the link to academic achievement, and what they (individually and collectively) can do to transform the culture and climate of the education setting
  • Through a deeper understanding of the impact of childhood trauma and neglect, plan for children and young people with identified needs more effectively, supporting learning, and accelerating academic progress
  • Develop a sophisticated positive behaviour management toolkit, reducing classroom stress (staff as well as learners!) and removing barriers to learning
  • Evaluate therapeutic interventions and develop cost effective strategies to transforming outcomes for troubled or disadvantaged children and young people
