Health and Wellbeing

Health and wellbeing is concerned with developing the capacity of learners to navigate life's opportunities and challenges. The Valley College curriculum encompasses physical health and development, mental health, and emotional and social well-being. College strives to support learners to understand and appreciate how the different components of health and well-being are interconnected, and to recognise that good health and well-being are important to enable successful learning. 

By developing learners' motivation, resilience, empathy and decision-making abilities, they can be supported to become healthy, confident individuals, ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.  Learners can also be supported to become ethical, informed citizens of the local community and the world by developing their ability to show respect, to value equity and to listen to others. 

Through enabling learners to manage risks, express ideas and emotions, develop and maintain healthy relationships, and take on different roles and responsibilities, they can be supported to become enterprising contributors ready to play a full part in life and work.
