Resilient Teens

This workshop supports those staff working with Year 7 to 12 students and provides participants with the opportunity to:

  • consider how explicit resilience teaching and a safe, caring learning environment can increase students’ connection to school, academic achievement and success in life

  • explore the Personal and Social Capability skills – self and social management, self and social awareness

  • unpack the resilience and wellbeing learning activities in the Challenges and Choices resources

  • observe a range of effective teaching and learning strategies that can be easily transferred into the centre or classroom to develop students’ knowledge, skills, attitudes and values.

The course is free, lunch is provided and certificates of participation will be issued on completion. Up to $350 is paid to your school towards teacher relief.

Participation expectations

Participants should have an understanding of the Western Australian Curriculum and Assessment Outline.

Eligibility to enrol

Anyone who works with students from Year 7 to Year 12 will find the workshop useful, and will gain insight into building resilience in this age group.


“It was great to be in a room with staff who work in all aspects of secondary schooling – school psychologist, student services, even a principal – and talking about the role each of us have in building students’ resilience. Made it really clear to everyone that this needs to be a whole of school approach.”
Classroom teacher, Mount Lawley High School

“Having time to network with other teachers and hear some of the ways they teach personal and social capability was very useful. The presenters were excellent and encouraged everyone to share their own expertise.”
English teacher, Ocean Reef Senior High School
