A 1 Week ERASMUS+ Teacher Training Course designed and delivered by Finnish primary school teachers. Available in Oulu and in Florence. 

In this course participants will become familiar with the basics of positive education, focusing on its theories and techniques. During this class participants are introduced to some simple mindfulness exercises which they can use in their own classes and of course in their personal life.

Building on your pupils’ strengths is an important strategy to guide their learning process and to foster a positive atmosphere in class. Teachers gain advice on how to talk to pupils about strengths and explore the best ways to praise your pupils’ efforts and achievements. During this class participants engage in hand-on activities to identify their pupil’s (and their own) strengths.

Participants will also learn about ‘Finnish Schools on the Move’, a national action programme aiming to establish a physical-activity culture in Finnish schools. In this course participants are introduced to the basics of the programme and engage in some hand-on activities. They learn how to include physical activity in the school curriculum and how to increase pupils’ participation.

At the end of the course, participants will have the opportunity to plan their own personal well-being project which they can share with their colleagues once they return to their schools.
