At Positive, we champion a whole schools approach to psychological wellbeing, delivering transformative learning starting with the teacher population. 

Teachers face huge challenges every single day, and their wellbeing has significant implications not only for them as individuals, but also for their colleagues, their students and the school more broadly. We work to support school staff, helping teachers to build resilience and develop practical, versatile skills that they can then pass on to other staff and students.

By taking this two-step approach, we drive sustainable change and help to establish psychological wellbeing within the heart of a school’s culture. Teachers are better equipped to handle the challenges of their profession, while students are given knowledge and tools that can support them throughout their lives.
