GGS Model of Positive Education

In its most basic essence, our Positive Education Model can be thought of as a road map of what people want for themselves, their students, and their children: good health, frequent positive emotions, supportive relationships, a sense of purpose and meaning, the accomplishment of worthwhile goals, and moments of complete immersion and absorption—a life where a person uses their character strengths in ways that support the self and others, and that has flourishing at the heart. 

 Our model aims to build a positive culture that places wellbeing at the heart of education.

We consider the implementation of Positive Education to be an ongoing journey where continuous learning, applying and reflecting are practised and feedback is always welcomed and encouraged.

In this video, Institute of Positive Education Director, Justin Robinson, gives an overview of the different aspects of the model. These are explored in more depth at the links below:
