Opportunities for young people.
NHS Sponsored resilience training
Taking place in London in March the sessions will be delivered by Beyond the Classroom. They'll be sharing techniques that empower professionals to help young people build their resilience and well-being.
Managing emotions, healthy relationships and motivation are just some of the key elements of resilience. Sponsored by the NHS Health Education England, and in collaboration with young people, we have developed techniques that empower professionals to help young people build their resilience and well-being.
Over the past 6 months Beyond the Classroom have been working with: The Resilience foundry, The Rathbone Society, St Michaels Fellowship and Alford house to create a suite of evidence based tools, that support professionals in improving young people's resilience. Come and learn about our work, gain useful insights and access to practical well-being tools that you can use with young people in your organisation or community.
