Langley Group Institute (RTO #40655) are excited to announce our new partnership with Berry Street Education Model (BSEM), providers of trauma-informed positive education strategies.
What does this mean?
If you are alumni of the BSEM course, you now have a direct pathway into the Diploma of Positive Psychology and Wellbeing (10653NAT). Your application of practices and knowledge from the BSEM course will enable you to apply for recognition of prior learning (RPL) for the elective unit ‘Apply positive education practices to develop a flourishing educational institution’ (PPWAPE511A). Successful RPL reduces your study load and the cost of completing the course.
In other words, you can complete this nationally recognised diploma qualification over a shorter period of time and at a reduced price because you have completed the BSEM training and can demonstrate ways you have reviewed your education practice!
Berry Street will be hosting this special Diploma at their office in Richmond, Melbourne. Join us for this exciting initiative starting on 1 July 2020.

More about the Berry Street Education Model (BSEM)
In today’s changing and complex world, schools often require specialised strategies to address student needs for healing, growth, and achievement.
Our friends at Berry Street offer a training course that enables teachers to increase engagement with challenging students and successfully improve all students’ self-regulation, growth and academic achievement. The BSEM provides schools with the training, curriculum and strategies to engage even the most challenging students, and their unique approach is informed by the last 25 years of trauma and positive psychology research.
The model is distinctive because it educates schools and their leaders to reinforce and sustain cognitive and behavioural change, thereby re-engaging young people in learning and progressing their academic achievement.
The BSEM is offered as a suite of structured professional development, consultation and mentoring for school leaders and teachers. It is based on instructor expertise, peer-collaboration, and opportunities for participants to pilot learned strategies in their schools. Support between sessions is also provided.

More about the 10653NAT Diploma of Positive Psychology and Wellbeing
The Diploma of positive psychology and wellbeing is designed for busy professionals who want to study recent research in positive psychology and wellbeing science, with practical tools for immediate implementation. Many of our participants begin their studies with professional goals and discover many personal as well as professional applications for their learning.
According to the World Health Organization “Health is created and lived by people within the settings of their everyday life; where they learn, work, play and love” (WHO1986). Schools are in a powerful position to promote wellbeing to their learners, workers, and the communities that they connect with. Traditionally viewed as a cognitive process, advances in neuroscience and psychology research now show that learning is profoundly affected by emotions, that wellbeing education improves academic outcomes, and that schools can play a positive role in mental health prevention and recovery (Waters et al 2017).
In order to support student wellbeing, education professionals need to understand their own psychological strengths, utilise a range of tools to buffer their complex and demanding roles and draw on current theory and evidence to inform their practices. The diploma of positive psychology and wellbeing is designed to translate the research into practical and personal learning experiences. Educators will experiment with interventions, reflect on current wellbeing, reinforce current best practice, and support each other through changes.
The course is offered through blended learning with six days of face to face learning, supported by online resources and coaching support.
