Educators have the most important role of all… Ensuring that young people, tomorrow’s leaders, are future-ready.

At Routes to Resilience, we are grateful for the teachers who believed in us and prepared us to embrace our life journey. With an ever changing world of work and the increasing need for 21st Century skills, having an outdated curriculum isn’t going to cut it. 

Which is why we’ve developed a range of bespoke workshops and programmes especially designed for educators and educational institutions.

During our programmes, you’ll gain the knowledge, skills and experiences you need to develop a sustainability mindset, and be able to integrate sustainability principles into your classroom practice and curriculum content.
