Why teachers matter more than ever

Helping children to grow up in a chaotic world

Children and young people moving through today’s education system are growing up in a world shaped by austerity, Brexit, Covid and the cost-of-living crisis.

There has been an alarming rise in the level of mental health problems in young people and the organisations that are meant to provide support to them are struggling to cope. At the same time, there has been a sharp rise in the number of children who have a social worker with a disproportionate number of these children excluded from school, permanently or temporarily.

In this 2-hour webinar for primary and secondary school staff, author, researcher and leading international trainer and consultant, Lisa Cherry, explores how you can support children who may be struggling in today’s uncertain and chaotic world.
