Staying Positive

The ability to overcome setbacks and manage risk.

 

Initially, the students need to build their own emotional awareness and empathy. This in turn can build resilience, where students can acknowledge setbacks and challenges but evaluate them effectively and keep progressing.

Over time, this should build into a willingness to take calculated risks and ability to overcome setbacks.

Those who perform most highly in this skill area will be able to encourage resilience and positivity in others as well as themselves.

Ultimately, by the time they leave school students should be able to face and overcome challenges positively, whilst learning from setbacks
