SLQ / Sports Leaders are holding online webinars to introduce our programme of learning that will help schools support pupils though the current COVID-19 crisis.
The ‘I Can, I Am’ programme will lead young people through a series of challenges during the summer that have been designed to build their confidence and resilience through the development of key skills, including teamwork, communication and problem solving.
According to research from Harvard University’s Center on the Developing Child, the disruption to learning caused by major incidents, like the current coronavirus pandemic, can lead to ‘toxic stress’, which can have a negative impact on pupils for up to five years.
By implementing a Crisis Recovery Education Programme, such as the ‘I Can, I Am’ Resilience Programme, pupils can continue to engage with school, their peers and their community, helping to alleviate the mental anxiety created by dramatic changes.
By focusing on the developing of mental resilience through ten challenges, the programme aims to build pupils’ confidence empower them to thrive and become a part of the solution when life returns to normal. The webinars will explore the programme of learning for KS3, 4 & 5 students that can be delivered through the summer term and outline our CPD support for teachers for facilitating effectively the learning from home environment.
