The Resilience Project

Are you interested in Resilience training? The Resilience Project was written by a Surrey Headteacher in conjuntion with Kingston University, to support, nurture and guide NQTs through their first year of teaching.

The course covers ways of:

  • Discovering that confidence ebbs and flows over time
  • Understanding the impact of stress on confidence levels and how to combat its effects before they happen
  • Reflecting on how to react positively to challenges that come up
  • Developing support networks both in and out of school
  • Uncovering the individual's motivations and how to make colleagues aware of these
