In partnership with the PLP, Resilient Me are offering a one-day workshop.

Who Should Attend Head teachers, Deputy Heads, DSLs, SLTs

Using a unique and fun circus analogy, this workshop is an outstanding 3-for-1 day from which attendees, their colleagues and their students will all benefit.

Put simply, learning to navigate life really is like learning to be a circus performer – we need to juggle a few balls, balance many demands, walk the tightrope occassionally, trust and work with others in our team, clown around a little sometimes and definitely feel the thrills.

75% of all mental health disorders originate during childhood & adolescence At any time, 1 in 4 workers in the UK is suffering from a diagnosable metal health issue

In schools, teaching and support staff are the first line of defence against this growing crisis. So what is stress, how can it lead to mental health issues, how do you spot the signs and how do you build the resilience to get better or to avoid mental health issues altogether? This workshop will give you the answers and includes the most up to date evidence based research and statistics from CIPD and Mind.
