About us

Guide to life - RSE & PSHE Resource Logo

The  Guide to Life has been created by Team + and Emile Education to help teachers and parents to grow children’s health and wellbeing.

Team + have created an approach to wellbeing that they introduced into over 50 schools in 2018/19. This practical delivery has evolved into a full online health and wellbeing programme for Personal, Health, Social Education & Relationships & Sex Education curriculum, including activities based on Physical Education pedagogy.

Emile Education have turned this course into a website and App that teachers can deliver with confidence.
