We are excited to share with you that our Personal Growth and Wellbeing Resource has been shortlisted for the Best Education Service or Product at The Mental Health & Wellbeing Wales Awards!

Free Personal and Social Development Workbooks
As you may remember, the Sweet Personal and Social Development (PSD) course is no longer available as a qualification.
We do, however, have a limited number of PSD workbooks available to centres who would like to use them as PS(H)E resources for younger learners. We will be giving the books away at no cost - all you need to pay is postage. The books are available in English and Welsh, and are still perfect for supporting the delivery of the PS(H)E and RSE curriculum.
The free books will be available until December 2022, and will be provided on a first come first served basis. If you are interested in receiving any of these books, please email us at email@example.com to let us know what you would like!

Black History Month 2022
October is Black History Month, and this year the theme is “Time for Change: Action Not Words.”
“To get to a better tomorrow, we can’t just focus on the past. The past is in the past. We can acknowledge and learn from it, but to improve the future, we need action, not words. We need to come together around a shared common goal to achieve a better world for everyone. To ensure real change, we need real support from our allies. It’s time to reset your mindset and support us with actions, not words.”
Sweet have created a number of free worksheets available to download and print to help explore Black History Month with your students, including:
Black History Month
World Refugee Day
World Teachers’ Day
If you’re already working on the Sweet Personal Growth and Wellbeing Qualification, this could be a great month to work on Book 5: This Is Me, where your students will explore how our personal identity is shaped and influenced, what makes us unique, attitudes, beliefs, values and learning how to empathise with others.
