Learner testimonial:

"For me, this course gave me further insights on the topic on Positive Education. It has broadened my view. Learning about PERMA especially has given me the chance to develop my skills better and be able to put the points into practice and learn from it. Being able to be positive, engage, maintain relations, have meaning and achieving is a task by itself but is achievable. Ofcourse I will have to remain on the path of positivity in teaching even though when situations arises. I believe its a learning process and I will do my best to apply what I have learnt into practise." Learner, India
