Education and Professional Trainee Resilience Specialist
David has a very clear vision – to proactively do something about the number of young teachers and other newly-qualified professionals walking away from work. With this in mind, he has developed a series of materials to support them (especially teachers in schools) and to nurture their resilience. David works with a number of teacher-training institutions and with schools themselves, to support the good work that they already offer, but to add something different. This ‘third space’ is where feelings and emotions can be spoken about and understood. Recalibrating mindsets so they are best placed to rise to the challenges that the classroom can bring.
