Students to benefit from a new social and wellbeing resource

VICTORIAN students will learn how to make informed decisions, when to ask for help and develop relationships through a new set of resources for schools. 

The framework is an online platform that brings together a range of social, health and wellbeing resources for schools. 

Education Minister Martin Dixon said the state government had partnered with Melbourne University to develop a Resilience Framework to support schools in teaching life skills. 

"Education is more important than teaching numbers and words - it's about preparing students for life during and after school," he said. 

"Victorian schools already have a strong wellbeing focus - making sure every student is supported to succeed at school.

"The Resilience Framework takes the next step - teaching students how to make good decisions when faced with life's challenges."

The framework covers education, drugs, sexuality, respectful relationships, health promotion and developing social and emotional skills, which are critical to improving academic performance and success in life.
