Personal Well-Being Lessons: Bringing coherence and structure to the classroom

Positive Education Interventions



The Personal Well-Being Lessons curriculum originally emerged from a joint project of a partnership between the Haberdashers’ Aske’s Academies Federation and the University of East London and evolved into a free-standing programme. The curriculum targets every known major lever of well-being using individually tested interventions to enhance learning. 

The Personal Well-Being Lessons curriculum has been successfully implemented and evaluated in secondary schools in London  for many years, and the clarity and structure of the curriculum leads to outstanding results. Personal Well-Being Lessons are now taught all over the world – in Singapore, Japan, China, Australia, the United States and the Netherlands – and are currently used in Portugal as ‘UNESCO’s actions for peace’.

36 of the most popular lessons have been published Personal Well-being Lessons for Secondary Schools: Positive Psychology in Action (2012) and translated into Dutch, French, Portuguese and Chinese and the book offers a ready to use curriculum of evidence-based well-being lessons. Our training builds teacher confidence by trying out the most engaging, as well as seemingly “tricky” exercises and solutions.  

The Personal Well-Being Lessons curriculum consists of 6 independent sequences, coherently organised around the best-known correlates and predictors of well-being.

The curriculum benefits from a flexible structure, allowing you to run it as a 6, 12, 24 or 36 lesson programme.

  1. Positive Self
  2. Positive Body
  3. Positive Emotions
  4. Positive Mindset
  5. Positive Direction
  6. Positive Relationships.

Personal Well-Being Lessons allow students to develop the skills of well-being: self-confidence, identification and activation of one’s character strengths, health education (diet, sleep, physical exercise), stress management, emotions, motivation, state of mind, empathy, gratitude, benevolence, active listening, cooperation, kindness, friendship, etc.

Personal Well-Being Lessons primarily target 11 – 14 yr olds but have also been used with younger and older students with minor adjustments. Lessons specifically designed for 5-11yr olds are currently being developed.
