Sweet Education

Sweet Education resources help secondary school children to achieve a BTEC Level 1 or 2 qualification in Personal Growth and Wellbeing. Our resources are mapped against the Health and Wellbeing AoLE and the new RSE curriculum in Wales, and the new PSHE curriculum in England. Our resources are ideal for schools who want to promote mental health and wellbeing, and want to teach students how to become happier, healthier and more successful young adults.

Sweet resources come in packs of eight workbooks, and you will need one of these per student. Although the resources help learners to achieve a BTEC qualification, they don’t just have to be used by 14-16 year olds. Many of our centres use the Sweet workbooks from Year 7 to help learners start their mental health and wellbeing journeys and learn how to cope with life’s big issues. We have learners in secondary schools, colleges, PRUs and many other educational settings.

There are eight booklets in total, covering sexual, emotional and physical health, as well as social skills, personal identity, environmental awareness, finance and planning for the future.

In addition to the resources, once you register with us, you will be provided with all the supporting materials to help you deliver the qualification. This includes ongoing support from your Sweet verifier, assessment plans, starters and plenaries, engaging PowerPoints, skills maps and detailed mark schemes.

Sweet resources are available in both English and Welsh. They are also available as physical workbooks or can be accessed online via our brand-new digital e-Sweet platform!
