Blended learning support when you need it most: join our free online workshop on 10 February at 16:30

Character strengths such as empathy, perseverance, creativity and resilience are critical to student wellbeing and greatly improve the odds that our young people will thrive. And they’ve certainly never been more important!

Harriet Tubman knew all about resilience, and Einstein used highly creative ideas in his scientific work. And here we are, demonstrating our amazing ability to adapt, in real time. A year ago, we could not have imagined we would be in this situation.

We’ve gone from the classroom to offering online education to swathes of our pupils who are sitting at home, away from their friends and teachers. This is a hugely challenging time for both teachers and pupils, not least as teachers across the country grapple with how best to present materials and achieve the same level of learning as they would in a more traditional setting. It’s an enormous task.

And it’s even more demanding in those areas of the curriculum which rely on discussion and the physical presence of a teacher to enable such discussion to be meaningful.

If you’re looking for a fantastic series of PSHE/RSE resources I can’t recommend Amazing People Schools resources highly enough. We’ve found it a great addition to PSHE and assemblies for all year groups – Richard Thorley, head of upper school, Holmewood House

For independent schools, the development of character is at the centre of their educational ethos. Many have well-established programmes, which can rely largely on face-to-face teaching, however, these can be so difficult to replicate through remote learning. This is where Amazing People Schools can add huge value.

This award-winning character and wellbeing platform offers practical and engaging resources alongside inspirational cross-curricular stories that will fire your students’ imaginations and inspire vital character strengths such as optimism, creativity and resilience.

Amazing People Schools resources present powerful characteristics in a simple but impactful way that speak directly to young people. The assemblies, lessons and activities are designed to inspire the next generation to believe in themselves and aim high – higher than they may currently think possible.

Selena Whitehead, education team manager at Amazing People Schools, and David Hodgkinson, secondary teacher, school governor and educational consultant, will host the workshop
