STRIDE EDUCATION is passionate about making change in a changing world. For over 35 years, we have been delivering social and emotional wellbeing programs to students, teachers and parents. Our programs offer key tools, or what we call STRIDE STEPS, that offer practical and easy to implement skills that help our students take life in their stride.
Our program framework equips students with 21st-century life skills in the following categories:
CONNECTION. Building healthy relationships
COLLABORATION. Working productively in teams
CAREERS & TRANSITIONS: Assisting future pathways
COMMUNITY. Inspiring change-makers and global citizens
CONTRIBUTION. Encouraging purpose and courageous leadership
COMMUNICATION. Developing skills for confident and clear expression
CRITICAL THINKING. Opening minds to problem solve and navigate change and uncertainty
Our signature programs are delivered in primary and secondary schools across Australia. Programs include Peer Support, Peer Mediation, MPower friendship program, Revved Up emotional management program, Leadership, Supportive Friends, The Resilience Toolbox, iPrep and more. These are facilitated over a full day, half-day, or 2-hour period.
In addition, we work closely with schools and educational organisations to tailor-build programs to suit specific student needs and budget requirements.
“Many of the girls are talking more openly and have appeared to become closer. Skills gained through the MPower Girls program include increased confidence, connectedness with other girls and staff as well as the ability to speak one’s own mind and be assertive in a positive way.”
“The Year 7 enrolments reflect a diverse primary background and many Year 7 students initially have few or no friends in the secondary school. The Peer Support Program provides the opportunity for them to make friends amongst their peers and with the older students.”
“Such worthwhile, well-based concepts. Content presented very clearly and professionally. The presenter was clearly experienced.”
“I like speaking and listening to people. It’s giving me more confidence.”
“Teachers have noted that the school community as a whole have benefited from the implementation of this program in that students have gained vital skills in the form of confidence, leadership and increased levels of self-esteem.”
“We are aware that this program has been directly responsible for potentially saving the lives of several young people.”
“Since commencing the program, teachers have not had to deal with as many problems or conflicts, as the peer mediators have actively and successfully utilised their mediation and leadership skills to resolve student conflicts”
