GRADUATE DIPLOMA IN POSITIVE EDUCATION
The Graduate Diploma in Positive Education is an education programme which allows students to gain knowledge through the understanding of positive psychology and its application to the education context. Positive education combines traditional education principles with the study of wellbeing, flourishing and resilience.

Learning is for life, and positive education proactively prepares students to navigate life by cultivating strengths, maximising wellbeing, and developing the understanding and skills to effectively cope with inevitable challenges.

Mental health has become a global priority, and the OECD, World Bank and United Nations are encouraging schools to cultivate student wellbeing (Waters, 2017). Positive education programmes have the dual benefit of both preventing mental illnesses while also promoting and increasing wellbeing. The programmes and practices within positive education equip students with the mindsets and skills to thrive, in turn, helping to create flourishing societies for the future.
