Teachers’ testimonies:

  • “The course was very innovative and up-to-date. The trainer sent us the latest articles and texts about resilience, teachers´ competences and other features which are typical and necessary for well-being. I highly  appreciate live meetings via Zoom where we discussed all materials, any questions which arose and did a couple of interesting exercises like meditation and visualisation. I recommend this course to any teacher who wants to widen their horizon and knowledge.” ( Katarina, Slovakia)
