About this course

This foundation level course will help you understand why resilience matters and how to develop it in children and young people and the systems around them. You’ll have the opportunity to reflect, build upon current practice and develop new skills to better support children and young people.

Online workshops:

  • Our online workshops are delivered via Zoom and are an interactive and collaborative experience.
  • With two trainer consultants available in each workshop, we can effectively facilitate discussion and provide a safe learning space for you to feel empowered to make a difference for children and young people.
  • The online environment allows for individual exploration of key dynamics encountered in the work with young people and the formulation of best practice within your role.

Face to face workshops:

  • Our face to face workshops run from 10am – 4pm, providing extensive opportunity for participants to immerse themselves in the content and make relevant connections to their settings, role and the young people they work with.
  • Within these sessions participants will be invited to share their experiences whilst drawing on a variety of learning methodologies, all of which are exclusive to a face to face group experience.
  • The in person environment lends itself to best practice sharing and interactive action planning.
