About the course

When our brains are in a state of stress, we literally cannot teach - or learn - as effectively as possible.  We take the STRESS out of SCHOOL, turn WORRY into WELL-BEING and LEVERAGE LEARNING - all based on brain-science, psychology and eight years of classroom teaching experience doing exactly this in primary and secondary classrooms.

Our workshops are perfectly aligned with the new Australian Student Well-Being Framework, ACARA's Peronal and Social Capabillity, and all seven of AITSL's standards.  Our approach fits perfectly with STEM, PBS, SEL, PERMA, Pos Ed, Visible Learning and Growth-Mindset.

Learn how you can Stress Less for Success! This is at the FORE-FRONT of the FUTURE in EDUCATION, as recommended by the OECD's Centre for Educational Research and Innovation.  We provide CUTTING-EDGE BRAIN-BASED PEDAGOGICAL PRACTICES - for every teacher, of every subject, in every year. 


    Teachers will learn:

  • Exactly what to do and say, to make teaching and learning as ENJOYABLE, EASIER and  EFFECTIVE as possible, while boosting staff and student well-being.
  • Exactly how you can help students learn best, by understanding the inherent link between learning and well-being from an Educational Neuro-Science and Psychology perspective.
  • Exactly how to MOTIVATE, EXCITE AND ENGAGE your students in the learning process. Todd Budden (The Mindful Man).   

    Teachers will be able to:
  • Manage Their Own Stress and Improve Their Own Well-Being.
  • Minimise Student Stress and Maximise Student Well-Being.
  • Have Better Student Behaviour and Enjoy Time in the Classroom.
  • Create More Engaging Lessons and Improve Student Learning Outcomes.
