Building a Mental Toughness Culture in Schools

This session will describe how developing a mental toughness culture can be achieved and what are the benefits of so doing. The business case is compelling.

The session will provide:

  • Case studies and examples of programmes
  • An introduction to the 6 key enablers – including an opportunity to try one or two.
  • How to engage all staff in effective delivery
  • How to plan for success and sustainable results

Everyone will leave with something they have learnt, something they can apply and, most importantly, be provoked into thinking more deeply about this important topic.
