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.
