Partnership Program

Become a Partnership School

Partnership Schools experience all the GEM journey has to offer, embedding The Resilience Project’s wellbeing curriculum across the whole school community.

Teachers, students, parents and carers all receive tailored presentations that teach the GEM principles, and inspire regular practise. To support long term change and embed mental health strategies, Partnership Schools deliver a year-long curriculum, mapped to Australian Curriculum Framework.

This curriculum includes teacher resources, student journals, access to an online teaching hub, and exclusive content released throughout the year.

In 2021, Partnership Schools working with presenter Martin Heppell will receive all presentations (teachers, students, parents and carers) in-person.

Partnership Schools working with presenter Hugh van Cuylenburg, will receive the Teacher Professional Development presentation in-person. Student presentations will be delivered through The Resilience Project’s Digital Program. This is a brand new program with age-specific videos of Hugh sharing his stories of resilience through interviews, animation, travel adventures and more. Parent and Carer presentations will be delivered via live webinar.

Step by step, this is how our Partnership Program works:

  • We engage STAFF through professional development presentations and provide them with resources, activities and knowledge to support their work with students.
  • We inspire STUDENTS across all year levels through the delivery of highly engaging presentations.
  • We empower PARENTS AND CARERS with presentations that provide practical strategies to help build their children’s resilience, and support their own wellbeing.
  • CURRICULUM supports the ongoing practise of mental health strategies in the classroom with 15-30 lesson plans (depending on year level) outlined in our Teacher Resource and individual Student Journals.
  • Schools receive regular newsletters with interesting and supportive approaches to teaching resilience in the school setting.

Partnership Schools also receive the following benefits:

  • All students complete The Resilient Youth Survey; a scientifically validated student wellbeing survey completed by over 300,00 students across Australia. This data informs the content of a tailored presentation reflecting the Partnership School’s data.
  • A Resilience Profile Workshop for staff, which focuses on the school’s survey data and how it relates to The Resilience Project curriculum.
  • Teachers have access to an online Teaching Resource Hub, with access to additional lessons and curriculum support on current world events that explore resilience and mental health.
  • Ongoing support is available throughout the year from our Education Team to support program delivery and evaluation.
