The Yes Futures Strengths System
The Yes Futures Strengths System is a package of personal development resources, designed to support your KS3 students to understand their strengths and how they can use them to be successful.
New for September 2020
A comprehensive personal development curriculum, perfect for tutor time or PSHE lessons.
12 weeks of lesson plans with powerpoints and resources, including group discussion ideas and activities.
A copy of My Strengths Toolbox for each student: a personalised workbook which guides them through a series of reflective and goal-setting activities.
What Teachers Say
The content and ideas are excellent, and are exactly what we want to be doing with our children. We really believe in helping children develop their meta-cognition from a young age and the Strengths System definitely helps us do that.
I found that the Strengths Toolbox opened up an opportunity for a student of mine and his mum to have a conversation about his strengths that they had never had before. We would love to carry on using this.
It fits with our curriculum perfectly, and I think it really pins down the ‘softer’ skills, but more importantly explains to pupils why they are important skills to develop.
One parent was amazed at how much her son, who had recently been struggling with schoolwork, was engaging with and developing from the Toolbox. He didn’t normally work well independently so she was really proud to see him doing so with the Toolbox.
Benefits to Your Students
We understand that there are going to be new challenges to face in September. Many teachers are worried about their students' mental health, and young people are worried about their futures.
Designed to support students as they return to school after lockdown, the Strengths System enables students to:
Develop techniques to manage stress and maintain positive wellbeing
Build resilience and boost
Become confident in their strengths
Establish a habit of goal-setting
Set ambitious targets for the future
This is a fantastic resource which will be instrumental in boosting the self-esteem of those who need it most. It addresses the wellbeing of the whole child.
