The Professional Certificate in Education (Positive Education) provides a foundation in the science of positive psychology and its application in education settings. The course is designed for educators, youth workers, school counsellors, school psychologists, health professionals and administrators who are working in schools and other educational settings. Participants will learn about different theories of wellbeing and flourishing, examine core positive education constructs, and explore positive interventions that can be used in learning environments to build wellbeing and resilience in students and staff.
