This course is packed full of ideas to make well-being tangible, practical and accessible for children. Each idea is simple, impactful and tried-and-tested so we know they work. Through having the opportunity to interact with Becky Carlzon and other course members, you can ask questions and troubleshoot as you go.

Align your approach with your beliefs

As your day-to-day interactions with children have relationships at their heart, aligning your school approach and policies with this will be paramount. As well as sharing ideas as to how you can personally develop relationships within your team and classroom, this course explores more nuanced and challenging whole school approaches to building relationships, such as how to successful set up restorative conferences and building relationships policies.

Harmonious classroom communities

Through focusing on building relationships, your classes will be built on trust and harmony. This will result in a happier, more connected classroom community.


Create a launchpad for psychological safety

More connected learners engage more readily with learning. With strong relationships as a basis, learners will be more ready to take risks and challenge themselves in learning.


Impact beyond the classroom

Not only will you build relationships in your classroom and school, this will also positively affect your personal relationships and student’s relationships beyond the school day.

“When I reflect on my time as a classroom practitioner, I realise that nothing I achieved with my class and colleagues was possible without strong, trusting relationships. Looking back, many of the relationships I built were strong, deep and trusting and, having worked with Mark in Learning Pioneers, I am able to see what I put in place to create these strong relationships. On the occasions those relationships weren’t as strong or could have been repaired more effectively, opportunities and learning were sadly lost. Had I gained conscious competence in building relationships and applied techniques like the ones outlined in this course, I would have had the tools to confidently reframe and nurture those relationships I didn’t know how to repair. This is why I’m excited to bring this course and Mark’s wisdom to Learning Pioneers - So that we can empower educators to know exactly how to build relationships and therefore positive impact on every young person and every family in their school community”
