Bloom, is a resilience programme that Minds Ahead wrote which equips young people aged 14-18 across the transition points such as moving through school, into employment and into university. This programme helps young people learn the many skills that can help them to be resilient. The programme was designed with a teacher guide for teachers to deliver across the 4 nations of the UK. Minds Ahead managed an iterative process ensuring a wide-ranging focus group feedback when reviewing draft content. A pilot is now being run across the 4 nations to support the full roll out and delivery of the programme in 2021.
Minds Ahead worked on this Health Education Funded Programme with the School Development Agency and a range of professionals to research and design a two-day programme which is now rolled out nationally using a cascade model with the Teaching School Council. To assist with roll-out Minds Ahead ran a ‘Train the Trainer’ workshop.
