Building student resilience model
This toolkit focuses on the ‘academic confidence’ aspect of resilience and offers a model that helps students to deal with and overcome: challenge, setback and fear of failure.
The Building Student Resilience transitions model focuses on the ‘academic confidence’ aspect of resilience as the more holistic definition of resilience as ‘wellbeing’ is beyond the scope of the academic focus of this toolkit.
The ‘resilience’ that this model specifically seeks to build in students includes
- the confidence to overcome problems that students often face in their learning
- mindsets that encourage a positive response to setback, challenge and fear of failure.
