    About us

    Guide to life - RSE & PSHE Resource Logo

    The  Guide to Life set of school resources has been created in partnership by Team + and Emile Education to assist teachers to help their students’ wellbeing.

    Team + created an approach to wellbeing that they delivered themselves into over 50 schools in 2018/19. This approach has evolved into a full wellbeing and recovery course that covers the Relationship Education curriculum and the Health Education curriculum. 

    Emile Education has turned this course into a full online program that teachers can deliver without worrying.
