In this interview, Cheryl Giovannoni, CEO of the GDST, joins Positive’s Dr. Brian Marien and Dr Sinead Devine-French to introduce the latest phase of the GDST–Positive partnership and reflect on the benefits already seen in GDST schools.
Positive have been working with the GDST since 2016 and have already taken over 300 teachers through the Positive Teacher Programme. Over the next three years, as part of a new extension to the partnership, the initiative will be scaled through live and online learning to reach all teachers and staff across the 25 schools within the trust.
‘We are absolutely delighted to be growing our partnership with the GDST,’ says Positive Co-Founder Will Marien. ‘It is fantastic to see the impact of our collaboration on the wellbeing and development of teachers, staff and students, and the potential of the partnership to transform how psychological health is viewed and applied within education is hugely exciting.’
