Psychological well-being - Promoting emotional health, mindfulness and wellbeing to optimise learning and achievement

A raft of educational research provides evidence that psychological well-being affects attitude to learning which in turn significantly affects achievement and success. This course explores psychological wellbeing (Carol Ryff) and how it is proven to significantly impact on outcomes for learners. The practical application of strategies and techniques underpinned by the above theory provides solutions to current challenges within the classroom: promoting independent learning, fostering resilience, ensuring progress at all key stages and creating the right environment for learning.

‘It is widely recognised that a child’s emotional health and wellbeing influences their cognitive development and learning, as well as their physical and social health and mental wellbeing in adulthood.’ Public Health England

The course will:

  • Provide an overview of psychological well-being and the research theory supporting it (Carol Ryff)
  • Develop an understanding of how psychological well-being fosters the right behaviours and attitude for effective teaching and learning
  • Identify how to create the optimum learning environment and learning states
  • Explore the principles underpinning psychological well-being and how they contribute to promoting a whole school/college approach to emotional health and well-being to achieve the right climate for deep learning in our classrooms
  • Identify how we promote self efficacy and self esteem with our learners using a range of psychological well-being approaches
  • Identify how through promoting psychological well-being can promote independence and resilience and how this accelerates the learning in the classroom.
  • Provide a wide range of practical strategies to help foster emotional health and well-being for both staff and students leading to improvements in the quality of both teaching and learning.
  • Provide an opportunity to practice techniques with colleagues and delegates
  • Reflect on the most suitable strategies and techniques for use with your learners and how these might be introduced into the classroom and embedded within the curriculum

OFSTED AUGUST 2016 HANDBOOK

This course incorporates both theory and practice, exploring the theory behind psychological well-being and providing the opportunity to identify and practice using preferred techniques and strategies. You will be supported to identify how, through the employment of simple strategies, we can improve emotional health and well-being, challenge limiting beliefs, effectively support motivation and engagement and boost achievement and success in learning. We will look at where psychological well-being links to the Ofsted inspection framework and school/college improvement priorities.

Who should attend?

This event is relevant to all those who have an interest in teaching and learning. The theory and techniques provide a superb platform for learning for all those who attend and provide a wealth of resources and opportunities to practice and learn some skills to take back into the classroom. It will be relevant to teachers and support staff, middle and senior leaders who want to embed some of these techniques and approaches across the school or college. It will also be beneficial for those who are involved in the pastoral process, health specialists and CPD managers who want to use the materials and techniques to train others back in school.
