Supporting Adolescent Learners: Social and Emotional Wellbeing

Griffith University via FutureLearn


Gain the skills you need to help adolescent learners thrive.

A large and growing body of research shows that adolescents who score high on social and emotional wellbeing report improved grades, better relationships, less trouble at school and a lesser likelihood of emotional problems.

On this course, ultimately, you’ll learn to help adolescent learners develop the skills and mindsets that will allow them to thrive. You’ll investigate the social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development of young people, explore the uses of neuroscience in education and help youths embrace lifelong learning.

This course is for anyone in a role that supports young adolescents. For example: parents, teachers, youth leaders, guidance officers and counsellors.
