Description

The Family Growth Mindset Scheme is designed to promote growth mindsets within the home environment to raise standards and aspirations of children/young people and families in order to boost the potential of all pupils within school.

This is the next effective step after implementing Growth Mindsets in your school to ensure sustainability and outcomes. 

This course is also appropriate for delegates who have no prior knowledge of Growth Mindsets and are looking for an effective tool to engage more families within school.

 

Family Growth Mindset Scheme pack and CD includes:
- Practical ways for the family to praise their child so that they feel motivated.
– Effective questions for the family to use as an alternative to praise.
– Practical ways for the family to improve behaviour and motivation to learn.
– Tools to establish family members’ mindset.
– Effective ways for the family to deliver feedback in order to motivate and build resilience.
– A structured bank of fun and exciting activities for the family to promote and develop motivation, effort, resilience and challenge.

  • Excellent! Clearly presented. Excellent course materials with practical ideas and resources which may be adapted. We look forward to implementing the 6 week programme which is highly relevant to the students we work with. This has left me with skills which may be used tomorrow and a programme to develop and implement in the future. Diolch!
