Education & Youth
We are committed to turning the tide; our programme is already creating resilient children, resilient students, resilient families, resilient schools, higher education institutions and a more resilient society, proving that education truly is the key to prevention.
IHEART – Innate Health Education and Resilience Training – helps our young people uncover their innate resilience, overcome their personal challenges and realise their potential. We address mental health, behavioural and emotional issues amongst students as well as challenges to resilience and wellbeing amongst teachers and staff.
We work in schools and other educational institutions, placing young people at the centre of their own community in order to build a common resilience culture and language within their daily environments.
IHEART can be brought to your school/educational setting in the following ways:
- Invite the IHEART lead facilitation team to share the programme directly with your students.
- Train your staff to become certified facilitators of the IHEART curriculum so that they can implement the programme themselves within your institution.
- Train your teachers and staff as above and then co-deliver the IHEART programme alongside our lead facilitation team.
- Adopt our bespoke “Whole Institutional” approach and educate your leaders and staff in building resilience and wellbeing across your entire organisation.
IHEART training for teachers
The IHEART Programme
We are creating a revolutionary shift through the specially designed IHEART curriculum. This structured, high-tech, educational programme is delivered over the course of ten dynamic sessions consisting of a mix of interactive discussions, activities, self-reflections, animations, videos and group exercises.
- Part 1 – Establishing the Foundations – empowers participants with the knowledge that they are intelligently designed to deal with whatever life brings by learning about how the mind creates all of our realities, feeling states, moods and behaviours and the crucial connection between thought and feeling.
- Part 2 – Addressing the Daily Challenges Facing Young People – looks at issues such as stress and anxiety, anger and conflict, prejudice and intolerance, bullying and bad behaviour, social media, identity and self-esteem, addictive and compulsive behaviours, and barriers to motivation and learning. At the programme’s conclusion, participants have learned how they can navigate their challenges with greater ease and success, found the confidence to make positive changes, and explored the misunderstandings that create barriers to their natural resilience and wellbeing.
Our professional team of trained facilitators can deliver the IHEART programme into your educational environment OR we offer Teacher Training so that the programme can be delivered in-house by your own staff.
Uncover resilience & wellbeing in your students with IHEART
The IHEART Training Academy
Our vision cannot be achieved by a small group of people, nor is it the domain of a select few. So we have designed a highly professional and impactful training academy for facilitators who wish to share the IHEART Curriculum in the field of education, youth and community work.
The Academy consists of a learning progression of 3 levels, each one representing a different tier of knowledge of the IHEART Framework which builds towards an increasing depth of enquiry, insight and practical skill and experience.
All participants are awarded certification as IHEART facilitators upon completion of Level 1 Training of the IHEART Academy. Once certified, facilitators join a fast-growing community who are sharing the IHEART approach across the UK and in numerous other countries across the globe.

Meeting Ofsted and Government Requirements
Our project empowers participants with a secure foundation to cope with many of the challenges that they confront in society today. As the UK government requires the promotion of British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for modern life, the IHEART curriculum has been designed with this requirement at the forefront of our minds. The content of the sessions provide an excellent approach to developing this understanding on a whole school level, evident in the following ways:
- By learning about separate realities, students discover how to welcome and accept differences, rather than feel judgmental or discriminatory.
- By understanding where their feelings are coming from, students are better equipped to respond to destructive and extremist viewpoints.
- By learning about the shared ways in which all people operate psychologically, students have an increased respect for others and tolerance for diversity, as well as a greater capacity to reduce conflict and bullying.
