Positive Education

Positive education is the science of wellbeing applied in educational settings.

Worth-it are a leading provider of Positive Education in the UK. We base all our programmes on the SEARCH Pathways to Wellbeing (Waters and Loton, 2019). SEARCH provides a proven and evidence-based framework that supports schools to plan implement, develop and embed sustainable approaches to developing whole school wellbeing.

Coaching Psychology

Coaching Psychology is the evidence-based approach to using coaching to improve wellbeing, performance, and success. Coaching has been proven to be the most effective leadership and development tool within the education sector.

We use positive psychology coaching to support schools, commissioners and practitioners develop and implement our early prevention programmes that support children and young people. Coaching is important to us as we are not prescriptive in our approach.  We believe in empowering schools, practitioners and partners to take the theories, tools, techniques and approaches to developing wellbeing and make them their own. This has been demonstrated to be the most effective way of working for creating a sustained and embedded change to early prevention.
