Wellbeing - Learning About the Brain

This class will give you strategies to help with everyday stresses and help you to understand a little more about how your brain works in response to situations.

The session will; look at a psychological approach to understanding the old brain (fight and flight) and our newer more rational brain; help participants to join up the physical thoughts, emotions and behaviours when they react to a situation; and look at the balance that needs to be achieved in our busy lives, highlighting the need to do activities that support our wellbeing, alongside academic studies.

Our Virtual Outreach

During the unprecedented times of social distancing, our team remain on hand to support you. Over the coming weeks, we are ensuring there is something for everyone, whether you’re a future student, teacher or adviser. We’ve got you.

 All our virtual outreach activities on offer have been developed to inform and motivate participants, and link to the Gatsby Benchmarks for Good Career Guidance. This report was redefined and published in January 2018. Laying out eight benchmarks, the report outlined good practice within careers guidance and an expectation that all secondary schools have a careers plan.

 Our online Masterclasses meet benchmarks 4 & 7 (Linking curriculum learning to careers & Encounters with further and higher education).
