There is a clear research overview for PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education). It consistently points to key features that make teaching and learning more enjoyable and effective for both teachers and students. Today’s course focuses on those main features by experiencing how they might work in the PSHE classroom.

Session 2

“Looking after ourselves” – A safe learning environment

Session 3
