They will need to be able to use a laptop (under supervision if necessary) and to be willing to take part in a range of activities.

There are places for 6 children on each course.

The course is free of charge but donations are welcomed.

What's the course about?

Focusing on resilience and a growth mindset, the Online Resilience Course covers how to face challenges, handle mistakes, deal with adversity and thrive in an ever changing world.

The course takes the theory behind developing resilience and helps children work out how they can apply this to their everyday lives.

The course aims to help develop a young person's attitude and improve the way they learn. Taking risks, dealing with setbacks, and pushing themselves to achieve more are all outcomes which can positively impact their life.

The course also includes access to additional exciting activities for your young person to do independently at any point during their day/week. Each of these is designed to be a fun distraction from what is going on around them. These activity sheets will be emailed to you along with a summary of the content shared during the online session each day.
