Setting out a year-long curriculum based programme for education and youth professionals, this book provides a challenging and engaging workshop-based approach to developing school engagement and ambitions in young people aged 11-18.

The programme, which is informed by CBT, helps professionals to understand barriers to young people's school engagement and learning. It outlines a case for a practical, well-rounded curriculum that readies students for life post-education through eight core themes, including 'believing in me', 'money matters' and 'business basics'. The second part of the book is a photocopiable manual for use in classroom settings, making this an essential, hands-on manual for nurturing young people's life skills.


'This is a fantastic resource for anyone working with adolescents. Backed by research, the author uses a holistic approach with practical and fun activities, case studies, and much more to prepare adolescents to be successful in life and careers in today's ever-changing world. This resource is packed with information and ideas that are applicable to many different settings. I highly recommend.'
- Lindsey Joiner, Author of The Big Book of Therapeutic Activity Ideas for Children and Teens: and The Big Book of EVEN MORE Therapeutic Activity Ideas for Children and Teens

'This evidence based practical resource will be invaluable to professionals in both school settings and the community. Giant takes a positive respectful view of young people, realistic about the challenges and imbalances in opportunity facing them and their enormous potential for growth. Beautifully structured, providing information and inspiration in order to enable young people to cultivate positive self-regard and develop practical flexible and transferable life skills.'
