Mental Health & Well-Being – Let’s talk about it
May 8th marks the beginning of Mental Health Awareness Week and mental health & well-being is something that is very close to our companies core.
Teenagers go through a lot when trying to find their feet and progress into adult life, the best thing you can do is be there for them, give them someone to trust, somebody to talk to and be there to help them through. As you may know over half of our team are under 25 years old, some of whom have had past experiences with mental health issues and come through the other side the powerful, inspirational people they are.
We have recently run a course dedicated to these issues, take a look as we run our Mental Health & Well-being day for the Year 9s of Framwellgate School in Durham.

Who Am I? Start the year off the right way
September marks the start of a brand new academic year and our Who Am I course helps you start it off with positivity and drive for the year ahead.
Our flagship programme suits any school and any year group and will address many personal and social barriers to learning and in doing so will help raise aspirations. Key focus areas include personal and social development. This highly acclaimed and innovative experience will undoubtedly take both your students and staff by surprise and will cause a hugely positive impact on the year group involved.
Watch our Who Am I day in action – we ran our motivational life changing day for the students and Thirsk School and Sixth Form College, see what they thought here.
Got a year 11 you need to give a final push to start off the year as they mean to go on ready for their final GCSE’s? Do just that with our brand new course “Final Push” later in this newsletter.
HU Branding – A brand new look…
This year our branding has had a facelift, the usual red and yellow is here to stay on our humanutopia logo, but each of our courses have a brand new look. Our head of creative media Tom Duffy has been hard at work to give our course logos an updated look and feel so look out for them as they appear across our programme and marketing. Enquire
It’s true, we really do work with all ages
We are that confident that we can work with any age group that we have just developed new courses to directly target different ages of students.
Our primary school workshop and secondary school courses are available in 1, 3 and 5 day packages. Our 1 day courses are about providing a day of inspiration, reflection and motivation. Our 3 day courses are about leadership and volunteering and our 5 day courses are about peer mentoring.

Award Winning School Workshops – Get that Final Push
This year we have taken our award winning courses and really drilled down into what we want to achieve with what we run, that is when The Final Push was born. The Final Push is literally as it sounds, it gives year 11 students what they need to give their all in their GCSE’s and prepare them for future jobs or further education.
humanutopia deliver their inspirational Year 11 Final Push day Passmores Academy in Harlow, Essex.
Many Year 11 students when the finish line is in sight, just need a new, fresh impetus of encouragement and sometimes when strangers are giving that support it seems to have a bigger impact. The feedback we have had about these courses over the years seems to indicate that the Big Push really motivates Year 11 students to want to do better with their exams.
