Imbedding Self-awareness & Goal-setting In Education

In Imbedding Self-awareness & Goal-setting In Education, educators will learn about the importance of teaching students how to set goals and the relationship between achieving goals and believing in oneself. By emphasizing the importance of goal-setting and integrating essential concepts such as self-awareness, bravery, and celebrating wins, educators can create an environment that nurtures students' self-belief and fosters their personal growth and achievements. Ideas explored in this class include the link between belief-in-self and goal-setting, encouraging bravery in pursuing goals, integrating goal-setting throughout the school day, nurturing progress, understanding failure, and collaboration with parents.
