Imagine a learning environment that mobilises individual strengths and enhances well-being and performance in innovative ways. These are the results of applying positive psychology in education. Many schools are now introducing positive principles to nurture the whole person – with both students and staff.

The Professional Certificate in Education (Positive Education) provides a foundation in the science of positive psychology and its application in education settings. It brings together the science and practice of positive psychology to promote optimal learning environments.

This is the first postgraduate course of its kind in Australia, and is ideal for participants who are new to Positive Education or may have already undertaken some introductory professional development in the area. The Professional Certificate brings academic rigour to your learning.
