A series of tailored resources providing principals and educators with insightful, engaging and practical tips on the topics of resilience, mental health and wellbeing.
To ensure we deliver on our promise to be the Partner of Choice, we designed the Insight Series around our partners’ needs but also their schedule. The Series is available through video, audio and transcript so that it can be consumed by principals and educators when, where and how it is most convenient for them. And even more importantly, we’re giving them the platform to ask their questions, so that the content is tailored, practical and relevant.
Recently Camp Australia conducted a survey with our partners. The survey revealed that principals and educators wanted to learn how to build resilience among their school community and recognised the need to prioritise their mental health. We have collaborated with leading specialists to provide our partners with tailored and supportive information to help them, their team and their students.
When you partner with us, you will have exclusive access to leading specialists who will provide relevant insights, supportive information and practical tips on the topics of resilience, mental health and wellbeing.
