Develops Personal Skills
This programme is designed to develop personal skills which students will use throughout their adult life. These include interview/CV development, and emotional
Prepares Students for Work
Many of the sessions have a strong focus on the future and the world-of-work. Students will learn how to present themselves to potential employees as well as how to deal with pressure and stress
Developing resilience is a big part of the Personal Development programme. Students will learn how to cope with difficult situations and barriers that prevent them reaching their potential
Improving a student's level of self-control is another big part of this programme. Sessions often focus on encouraging students to manage their emotional responses to difficult situations.
As with all our programmes, the Personal Development programme empowers students and teaches them that they are capable of fantastic things in life.
Each of our programmes comes with a selection of student workbooks. Our exciting workbooks allow student to keep track of their learning as they take part in the programme. These workbooks are packed full of engaging, meaningful tasks that help students manage their emotions in a way that is comfortable and fun. Each week, students will also record their check-in and their targets for the week, allowing them to use their workbook as a way of keeping track of their goals and their accomplishments.
Our interactive session are what ties our programmes together. These session will run on the board each week, allowing facilitators to deliver session with ease and ensuring that structured learning is always being complete. These exciting interactive sessions are packed full of meaningful games and tasks, a wealth of activities that are designed to support students as they discover more about themselves and a series of tools that help keep the learning fun and, when needed, differentiated for learners with a lower ability.
Monitoring and Tracking
To make learning even more impactful, each of our programmes comes with a suite of documents that help schools prepare, setup and monitor progress of each individual student that takes part. We provide referral forms, parental consent letters, session evaluation forms, questionnaires and a tracking system that allows staff to see, at a glance, the progress made by each student over the course of the programme. These documents can be kept on the students records, to provide a comprehensive breakdown of the support that each students has received through one of our programmes.
Our facilitator handbook makes delivering our programmes a breeze. Each session is broken down into a comprehensive session plan, which outlines leaning objectives, potential barriers to learning, links to academia, AFL strategies and answers to games. To make life even easier for our facilitators, we have also included an activity summary for each session, so that an overview can easily be obtained and used to run a fantastic session of wellbeing support. This facilitator handbook will help guide new facilitators as they deliver the programme, allowing them to focus on supporting the students.
"The sessions were beneficial to many individual learners, but also helped the group to bond as a whole and work together effectively. Students were helped to really think about their future goals and what they can do to achieve them, as well as how they can take responsibility for their own successes and failures."

Our Training Package is perfect for schools who are confident with the idea of running a SEMH programme independently. With our Training Package, schools are provided with all resources needed to run the programme - including workbooks and interactive sessions - and will receive a 2 hour training session on how to run the programme effectively. After that, it's over to you!
Our Delivery Package offers schools all of the benefits of our Training Package - including workbooks and interactive sessions - but also the opportunity to have one of our specialist facilitators attend the school and run the programme for 10 weeks. During this time, a member of school staff will shadow our facilitator and learn how to deliver outstanding sessions.
