Skills with Frills Education Ltd. provides a unique service to schools within Yorkshire, offering wellbeing-based supply cover, created and delivered by our super-duper teacher, Jo Steer. In essence, we offer upgraded PSHE/SEAL lessons, built on a foundation of Mindfulness, CBT, Growth Mindset, Yoga and Wellbeing strategies overall, to infants, juniors and secondary schools.
Learning Experiences are delivered in a number of different ways, depending on the requirements of the school itself. For example:
- One-off workshops in mindfulness, yoga or other topics i.e. pre-exam anxiety workshops, self-esteem workshops etc.
- A unit of wellbeing/mindfulness sessions, perhaps over the course of a term, delivered to a class in lieu of cover lessons from a supply teacher or HLTA.
- Weekly wellbeing sessions, rotated around different classes within a school.
- Small group intervention, including children with particular anxieties and needs.
- Learning Experience Days: one-off days, covering a range of themes, often taught as an alternative to a standard supply cover during teacher absence.
No matter what the package, of where it’s delivered, the aim is always the same: to leave students with knowledge, understanding and practical strategies which will enable them to better their own wellbeing (or reduce distress) long after our sessions are complete.

If you’re a parent, hoping to learn more about our work with individual children through mindfulness/CBT coaching, see here. Perhaps you’re a fully-grown adult, looking to share mindfulness approaches with friends, group-members or employees. Find out more about current workshops/training options here.
