TRAINING YOU CAN USE TODAY

Problem & Project Based Learning for Wellbeing

Save time and energy by building on students’ own passions and interests, as they learn from home. A smart way to combine multiple curriculum areas into one engaging, self-driven project. Boost engagement, wellbeing and achievement. Tap into students’ natural curiosity and motivation, allowing them to be the drivers of learning, while you play a supporting role from the navigation seat. This mode of learning is successful at all ages (years 1-13, especially with NCEA!). Further information and to book your place.

Educator Wellbeing while Running on Two Treadmills

This year has been a particularly tough one for teachers. After setting up classrooms and relationships, you rapidly got your heads around virtual teaching to students at home. Next came the tricky situation of online and face-to-face teaching simultaneously! Looking after your wellbeing has never been more important. This webinar shares strategies for managing your wellbeing while teaching, and for maintaining support and connection with colleagues. Bring your best teacher hacks to share! Further information and to book your place.

Meaningful Appraisal for Wellbeing

Place a wellbeing lens over your appraisal process by using a Critical Friends coaching approach that teachers can use with their colleagues online. This style of appraisal is high trust, low fuss and highly relevant for a future-focused and online way of working. Pay it forward to yourself by meeting the Education Council standards via an approach that is particularly suitable and meaningful in the current educational setting, and beyond. Further information and to book your place.
