  • Resilience Revisited and Communication 

    These lessons offer an opportunity to revisit and reinforce the core resilience skills. The learning then builds to cover how to communicate with confidence, learning new ways of solving problems (moving on), and the importance of empathy.

    • Revisit the skills of resilience
    • Optimistic thinking
    • WoBbLe revisited
    • Assertive communication
    • Moving On
    • Empathy and resilience planning


    Designed for students aged 12-13 adaptable to other age groups.

  • Resilient Relationships 

    These lessons focus on human connection. The way students build connections, their willingness to reach out (when they need to) and having empathy and care for others all increase personal happiness.

    The ability to recognise and respect that we can have different views, we can agree to disagree and still value the other perspective, has never been more important.

    • Resilient Relationships
    • Big Sticky Bs (BSBs)
    • Identifying BSBs
    • BSBs and Human Connection
    • Changing BSBs
    • Communicating BSBs
    • BSBs and Planning for the future


    Designed for students aged 13-14 adaptable to other age groups.

  • Resilient Decisions 

    The world is changing, students are changing, risk and opportunity become more entwined. Exploring the concept of ambiguity in the context of the resilience skills is where the ‘magic’ really starts to embed.

    • Ambiguity, complexity and independent thought
    • Assessing risk and opportunity
    • Assertive Communication in Decision Making
    • Reviewing how we make decisions


    Designed for students aged 14-15 adaptable to other age groups.

  • Resilient Learners 

    Learning is forever. Recognising personal strengths, exploring what we can learn from others, pursuing a growth mindset and planning techniques are so useful. Applying the skills of resilience to studying and exam experiences is not just relevant in school, but in life.

    • Barriers to Success
    • Learning Priority and Strategies
    • Learning Mindsets
    • Dealing with anxiety
    • Action Planning

“Resilience is something that grows and grows. I wish I’d had this training when I was at school.”

“The ability to think flexibly and realistically, to be able to communicate assertively and harness emotions is key for our students to be able to get on with each other, have hope for the future and show compassion to others. Vital for any age and across any topic area.”
