Boost your students' sense of achievement
The pandemic has had a negative impact on young people’s mental health and well-being, with school leaders across the UK reporting that some pupils have lower levels of resilience and confidence, and increased levels of anxiety.
One way to combat this is to engage students in activities that challenge them in manageable increments and that give them a sense of direction and achievement.
Each experience on Neon builds on a set of essential skills. The ones featured here focus on ‘aiming high’, or the ability to set clear, tangible goals and devise a robust route to achieving them. The focus in these experiences is on working with care and attention, taking pride in success, and having a positive approach to new challenges.
You can also use the case studies and resources we’ve selected to inspire students by showing them that no matter their circumstances, they can achieve great things – one step at a time.
