PSHE Association Annual Conference 26 June 2014

This conference is now fully booked.

You’ve told us that you want our conferences to provide practical support and advice on the elements of PSHE education you find the most challenging to teach, including:

  • Change, loss and bereavement
  • Body confidence and self-esteem
  • Staying safe online
  • Healthy relationships
  • Sexual orientation and gender identity
  • Eating disorders and self-harm

A key factor which unites these issues is their relationship with pupil mental health and emotional wellbeing. This was the biggest concern that you expressed in our 2013 annual survey, which is why we have made it our 2014 annual conference theme.

As well as focusing on the topics listed above, the conference will also provide practical advice on aspects of mental health and emotional wellbeing relevant to all parts of PSHE education including:

  • Building self-esteem, resilience, and strategies to help pupils manage their own mental health
  • Knowing how to ensure pupils get pastoral and specialist support if they make a disclosure
  • Understanding mental illness including addressing mental health stigma and discrimination
  • Seeing PSHE education as part of a whole school approach to pupil mental health and emotional wellbeing, and raising standards

You will leave with:

  • Practical resources which you can use immediately
  • Ideas on how to assess and evidence learning in your PSHE provision in relation to mental health and emotional wellbeing
  • Advice on how to create an emotionally safe environment for learning
  • Ideas on how to ensure you have the evidence you will need for school inspections

Aimed at: PSHE teachers and leads; and those who seek to improve PSHE provision within school leadership teams and local authorities.

We offer:

Hands-on workshops, inspirational and informative speakers, quality assured exhibitors and numerous opportunities to network and share practice with other practitioners.

Full events schedule available now
