Growth Mindset CPD
Developing a Growth Mindset in school creates gritty, resilient students. It also encourages them to seek out better feedback, persist for longer, and cope better with change. In short students with a growth mindset become better learners and perform better at school than their fixed mindset peers. Our CPD workshops help your staff with practical tips and strategies to develop growth mindsets in their students..
