Teacher CPD

Are you looking for better teacher CPD?

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.

About the workshop

Growth Mindset is a learning theory developed by Dr Carol Dweck. It revolves around the belief that we can improve our intelligence, abilities and performance. Naturally, it has become one of the most popular psychological theories in education.

Our Growth Mindset CPD workshops are based on the latest research. But above all, your staff will learn about practical tips and strategies that they can start using straight away. They will leave our CPD workshops with a clearer understanding of what Growth Mindset is, and how to best foster it in their classrooms and at your school.

  • Motivation
