The Institute of Positive Education runs training courses in Australia and overseas that are designed to have a meaningful impact on the wellbeing of both educators and their students, allowing them to flourish both inside and outside the classroom. The courses allow participants to explore the key concepts and skills of Positive Education in a practical way, with all content being supported by empirical research. 

Please note that some of our one-day courses are offered concurrently in sets of three. Although it is not required by any means, we do recommend that if you are considering attending one of these courses that you consider attending the series of all three courses in order to get the most out of your Positive Education experience.
