Specialist resilience training for education settings

Nick works closely with schools to implement and oversee communication techniques that lead to:

  • Positive changes in behaviour
  • Removal of barriers to learning
  • A happier and more resilient workforce

Nick now provides both online and on-site training to introduce his approach to a wider audience.

The Power of Communication

The Power of Communication training shines a light on the link between resilience and behaviour, how that behaviour looks in education settings, and how to use specific language to build children’s awareness of their resilience and subsequently reduce behaviours that prevent learning.

‘The Power of Communication and tackling negative behaviour whilst building resilience’

One-off staff meeting: 1.5 hours, available in person or online

A one-off staff meeting gives education professionals an insight into specific language techniques that increase Resilience and reduce negative behaviour in children.

This training also provides a brief overview of the belief systems a child has that lead to negative behaviour, what that behaviour looks like and the impact that behaviour can have.

*Please note, follow-up staff meetings are available to; review how the strategies have been applied, reaffirm the benefit of the strategies and troubleshoot if necessary

Half-day training: 3 hours (inclusive of a 20 minute break), available in person or online

Half-day training allows for detailed examples of how to use the specific language techniques that have worked so well in Nick’s schools.

Full-day training: 9:30am-4pm or 9am-3:30pm (inclusive of a lunch hour and two, 20 minute breaks), available in person or online

Full-day training adds layers of depth to the understanding of why a child may appear to lack resilience and the way this manifests itself in education settings.

After interaction with the participants, Nick will give detailed examples of how to use specific language to increase resilience, build relationships and reduce behaviour that hinders the learning of children and their classmates. In Full-day training, Nick can tailor his approach more specifically to your setting’s needs.

Full-day training provides additional input to build a strong narrative amongst staff, offsetting limiting beliefs that participants may have about implementing positive communication strategies. To support staff wellbeing, Nick also gives a brief outline of tips to promote positive thinking to empower staff to see that they are stronger than the challenges they face.

Staff Resilience and Personal Growth

Whilst working in education is incredibly rewarding, it can also present professionals with challenges that cause stress, anxiety, self-doubt and beliefs that their skills do not match the expectations they have of themselves.

When a professional experiences such issues, their ability to work effectively is compromised, their confidence can be damaged and they re-experience the challenges detailed above. Thus, a vicious cycle develops.

Staff Resilience and Personal Growth training supports professionals to re-frame limiting thoughts about challenges and empowers participants to believe that their strengths far outweigh any obstacles they may perceive are stopping them from fulfilling their potential.

‘Staff Resilience and personal growth’

One-off staff meeting: 1.5 hours, available in person or online

In a one-off staff meeting, Nick aims to briefly highlight how professionals can fall into negative thought and belief cycles.

The focus then is to provide participants with ideas to help themselves become more positive, empowered and Resilient.

*Please note, follow-up staff meetings are available to; review how the strategies have been applied, reaffirm the benefit of the strategies and troubleshoot if necessary

Extended version of ‘Staff Resilience and personal growth’

Half-day resilience training: 3 hours (inclusive of a 20 minute break), available in person or online.

The content in Nick’s Half-day training is similar to that provided in the one-off staff meeting. However, the additional time allows for more detail on how negative cycles can develop and how to change thinking patterns to break these cycles.

There is also more opportunity for participant interaction in the Half-day training.

Full-day resilience training: 9:30am-4pm or 9am-3:30pm (inclusive of a lunch hour and two, 20 minute breaks), available in person or online.

Full-day training provides participants with a greater depth of understanding of negative cycles. Nick then moves on to give detailed tips and strategies that will; build strength awareness, develop positive thinking patterns and empower professionals to believe in their own Resilience and how they can use it every day.

With more chance for interaction and activities, Nick can give bespoke advice to overcome specific challenges that professionals in your setting might be going through.

Full-day training also provides additional input to give professionals a brief overview of how to implement positive language to build Resilience and reduce negative behaviour in the children they work with.

Resilience Coaching Packages - Whole class work with children

Resilience coaching delivered to whole classes. Schools have the option for Nick to teach each class or choose particular classes that they think would most benefit.
