NCS are pleased to offer a number of Personal Development and Pastoral Resources, a series of lessons designed to help Year 11 teachers support their students.

The lessons are aimed at Year 11s, but can be easily adapted for other year groups, and are a great taste of what is offered on the full NCS programme. All content has been designed to align with the requirements of the Ofsted Personal Development Framework. Available lesson plans include:

Self Belief: Introduction to some self-belief strategies and their positive effects on resilience and recovery

Hope and Gratitude: Development of coping strategies to deal with negative thoughts/challenges that helps turn them into feelings of hope and gratitude

Being Connected: To introduce some strategies for students to reconnect with their friends and their communities post Covid-19/lockdown
