Webinar: Learn how to co-design a resilience model to promote mental well-being at school

A holistic approach addressing teenagers, families, and education professionals

With mental health issues having been multiplied among young people on a global scale, how can schools promote a culture of mental wellbeing in the whole school community, based on positive relationships, belonging, inclusion and active participation? 

By increasing the participants’ resilience levels, the model designed by UPRIGHT should improve their mental health and prevent mental disorders in young people aged 12-14. Find out more by joining this last webinar before the summer break. → Register for the event.

Duplicate accounts removed from the School Education Gateway

It is no longer possible to have two accounts with the same email address.

For improved account management, we have removed duplicate accounts, meaning those using the same email address. This means that you can’t anymore log in through a social media account which has a same email address than an account that was already registered.

We have also corrected existing duplicate accounts. If you previously had two accounts with the same email address, the address of the duplicate account(s) is changed. You might be affected if it seems impossible for you to reset your password, or if you do not see all your Teacher Academy online course achievements. If you think you have been affected by the update, feel free to contact our helpdesk for support.

Traveller education concerns school-age children who are part of traveller communities, such as Roma or circus communities, and who often lack regular or sustained access to education. Breaking the vicious cycle of educational disadvantage will reduce prejudice and discrimination, improving their participation and learning outcomes. Opportunities that digitalisation can offer, in terms of distance education and blended learning, should allow more flexibility in school education.


Beyond the formal classroom setting, a great deal of valuable learning takes place in other structured learning experiences. As an undeniable complement to formal education, the importance of non-formal learning has increased in European and national policies. The combination of formal and non-formal learning can diversify the use of learning environments and tools, contributing to young people’s access to education, training and working life.


Last year brought disrupted schooling experiences for children around the globe. Despite all the recent challenges in home learning and online learning, teachers have shown impressive creativity and flexibility, embracing new ways of working. This monthly topic emphasised the broad nature of what could be included in a blended learning approach – for teachers, schools and whole systems – to improve inclusion and competence development.
