Create a comprehensive, skills-based Health & well-being curriculum

In this six hour course, participants will be guided through the process of creating a comprehensive, skills-based Health & Wellbeing curriculum that can be applicable for grades K-12 and adapted to align with any set of standards or curricular framework. Participants will leave with ready to use resources, projects and unit plans, and proactive solutions for a schoolwide approach.

Certification Opportunity

Participants can optionally choose to become “Level 1 Certified International School Health Educators.” This is an action-based certification that will allow you to focus on developing a unit plan for your health curriculum for your school context.  After submission, the course leader will provide individualized feedback on your work to guide its further development. 

If you submit the work and it meets the standard you will receive an additional certificate and digital badge.

In many international schools, health education is added as an afterthought or tasked to teachers who don’t have enough time or resources to give it the attention it deserves.

  • Current best practice in health education 
  • Skills-based health education in international communities

  • Aligning your school’s approach to sex ed
  • Updating lessons to meet the health concerns of today’s kids and teens

Feedback from Participants

Shows what quality skills-based lessons and projects can look like. I always wanted to move in that direction, but wasn’t really sure how to do it. I’m all set now!

There are so many resources available to help deliver a skill based, authentic, relevant health education programme. We are not alone – trust what others have worked on and be smart in choice of resources to support your programme.

What I took away from the workshop:

  1. The abundance of quality resources and experience-sharing from my breakout buddies.
  2. The wealth of resources
  3. Affirming resources, in regards to anchor documents. Also the amazing sharing of all other resources – including online, hybrid lessons, and in person.

I feel ready to lead my team as we begin to bring our health education into the 21st century.

There are so many Health resources out there. There is no reason a teacher cannot provide a quality Health program.
