"For me, I feel this was possibly the most relevant and worthwhile course I have completed over the summer months throughout my teaching career to date! I really enjoyed the practical strategies that I can use when I go back to work. I particularly loved the idea of the Coping Cards, something I can't wait to introduce to my students. Thank you."

"I thought the course was excellent. Provided the perfect balance of background research and strategies to employ said research in a classroom setting."

"This course incorporates a lot of important information on preventing mental health issues and maintaining mental health. We can create schools that promote well-being and mindfulness and this course has inspired me to share these valuable strategies to my school. Thank you."

"I loved this course. I found it so informative. I feel that I will be able to cope better with my own anxiety and that I will be more mindful of how others may be anxious about things. I know that I will be able to support the children in my school better. I look forward to working with the principal and other members of staff to make a whole school approach to behaviours and have higher expectations."
