Pupil Resilience Programme

We are delighted to be working in partnership with The Resilience Doughnut to bring you a fully-evaluated programme of workshops and training with a focus on building the resilience of pupils, staff and parents. The Resilience Doughnut is a research-validated tool being used around the world to build the strength of children, adolescents and adults.

The Programme includes:-

Bright Thinking - Intermediate Training for a teacher

One member of your staff will receive a half-day training and resources to deliver Bright Thinking in your school permanently. Bright Thinking is a 6-week programme for children aged 8 to 12 years whose anxiety fuels their negative thinking. Training Delivered online or Face-to-Face.

Bright Thinking Support- Foundation Programme for pupils (max 10)

The Wellbeing Academy trainer will support you to deliver the first 6-week programme of 1-hour sessions. A combination of in-house and online support is provided after that Bright Thinking can be run anytime by the school without the need for our involvement. 

Pupil Resilience  -Intermediate Training for teachers

A half-day workshop that is engaging and practical, involving a range of individual, paired and group activities and discussions. This training gives teachers a clear understanding of how we build emotional resilience of pupils and, along with The Resilience Doughnut, model, can be applied immediately. Training Delivered online or Face-to-Face.

Resilient Thinking - Workshop for teachers

This 2-hour module helps teachers explore how the application of The Resilience Doughnut actively promotes resilient thinking in pupils, how to recognise the features of resilient thinking and the common pessimistic thinking traps. We will also introduce the tools to help pupils shift towards more optimistic, resilient thinking.  Training Delivered online or Face-to-Face.

Raising Resilient Children - Workshops For Parents

This practical 2-hour workshop helps parents and carers to discover ways to support their children as they grow and change so that they can face the inevitable difficulties that life brings. We will explore how focusing on their child’s strengths, rather than correcting their weaknesses, can help build their resilience and optimism, encourage creativity, develop self-esteem and enhance achievement. Max 30 parents. Training Delivered online or Face-to-Face.  



All of the above - £3000

For Primary Schools in Edinburgh and Fife - £600 (private funding)
