With Exam Season coming up for Year 11s & Year 13s, anxiety and stress levels can be high. Spark UK is excited to be launching 4 free workshops for secondary schools and colleges on Exam stress in collaboration with The Youth Fairy and Kerry Keenan Mindfulness & Wellbeing.
The 1-hour session will teach students about anxiety, mental health and offer ways to practise self-care during exam periods and beyond. The session will also teach students self-care and offer ways to support themselves at times of anxiety. By the end of the session, students will create a self-care timetable for their exam period.
The workshop has been developed by Spark UK - an award-winning mental health organisation run by young people for young people based in Devon, UK. The session will be led by 17-year-old Conor Warren, the CEO of Spark UK. Conor did his GCSE exams in May 2021 and is now a 6th form student. The workshop will also be led alongside Katie-Rose Leitzell, therapist, youth fairy for Barnstaple & Bude and an ex primary school teacher as well as Kerry Keenan, a mindfulness practitioner.
Katie-Rose will be co-running the sessions on Monday 27th February & 27th March Only.
Kerry will be co-running the sessions on Friday 17th & 31st March Only.
