Education is one of the biggest influences in children’s lives and a wonderful opportunity to help children develop resilient and positive habits that will enable them to grow in to happy, healthy, and successful adults.
Our Pebble programmes have a special aim – creating flourishing school communities. The demands of modern day education can be equally difficult for both teachers and pupils, but via Pebble, we offer practical training and support to help schools become the flourishing communities they want to be, for both pupils and staff. Pebble programmes help you increase the resilience and wellbeing of all staff and pupils throughout your school, maximising both potential and performance.
We work with schools as flexibly as possible offering everything from short talks on inset days to comprehensive training courses. As the Work Life Balance Centre is an accredited college recognised by the Complementary Medicine Association participants on some courses receive a recognised qualification upon successful completion.
The benefits we talk about can be achieved in just minutes each day, but the effects last a life time.
All Pebble courses are evidence based, and so are grounded in the latest proven information about how schools can help children reach their full potential, giving them a strong foundation of life-long skills, while at the same time ensuring staff feel enthusiastic and supported in the important work they do.
Our work in positive education is based on PERMA, the positive education model developed by Dr Martin Seligman, the founder of positive psychology.
Using these PERMA elements helps staff and pupils develop a “can-do” attitude where they are ready to take on challenges and develop a capacity to experience a more fulfilling and rewarding life, both at school and beyond. A life where they aim higher, and yet can cope with setbacks and challenges more easily.
All our programmes are evidence-based and founded on the latest research. They are also highly practical – so you can start to implement what you learn straight away.
Primarily we work with your staff to support them as they learn the tools and techniques of positive education and then bring it to life in the classroom, although there is one specialist meditation programme that we run for both staff and pupils together.
Creating a while-school positive education culture takes commitment and we do everything we can to ensure it is successful, from running CPD workshops covering specific themes to one-to-one coaching for senior leaders.
