Positive education

What is it about?

    • Positive education researches the factors that promote children’s and adolescents’ well-being, happiness, quality of life, and learning.
    • The purpose of positive education is to actively observe each child’s potential and possibilities despite challenges.
    • The foundation of positive teaching is building on strengths and consciously supporting the students’ well-being.
    • Teaching character strengths is an essential part of positive teaching.
    • This 3 x 2h basic-level training package includes the best practices and research information that we have gathered when training over 10,000 teachers on several different continents since 2014.

In addition to the lessons, the training includes the online service of positive pedagogy, including lesson plans for teaching the 26 character strengths, over a hundred ready-made exercises for positive pedagogy, teacher’s manuals, and a tool for seeing the good and recording successes.


The objective of this training is to learn to use the research information on positive pedagogy and education in your own work as a teacher and educator. After this training, the participants will have an extensive understanding of the value base of positive education and of how to support children’s and adolescents’ well-being, teach character strengths, and focus on seeing the strengths.
