How do you get your students to concentrate effectively? Does a lack of self-control hinder their progress in a world with so many enticing distractions?

Colfe’s School has just hit an all-time record for examination results and attribute much of this success to their award-winning Tougher Minds programme.

The programme is designed to teach students, parents and staff how the brain actually learns and offers practical skills to professionals and pupils to help build mental resilience and self-control, in a world full of distractions.

The Developing Resilient Minds in Education Conference - will give you the opportunity to hear from experts in their respective fields as to how the science works and how to implement it successfully inside your classrooms and out. Pupils and parents will also share their experiences of developing a tougher mind and how that has transformed into everyday practice.

The conference is a must for senior leaders in education and is aimed at head teachers, academic performance leaders, pastoral leaders and teaching staff with a remit for building mental resilience amongst pupils.
