Health and Wellbeing:
The Health and Wellbeing Area of Learning and Experience is about the physical, psychological, emotional and social aspects of our lives.
It recognises good health and wellbeing as a key enabler of successful learning. This area of learning and experience will support learners to develop and maintain not only their physical health and wellbeing, but also their mental health and emotional wellbeing, as well as developing positive relationships in a range of contexts. To enable this, it will build learners` capacity to make informed decisions about their health and wellbeing and also to engage critically with a range of social influences which may impact on their values and behaviours.
This area of learning and experience supports learners to develop an understanding of how these aspects are interconnected, and how they can all contribute to a positive state of wellbeing. This understanding in turn will enable learners to develop the behaviours, habits and dispositions which will support their health and wellbeing in a rapidly changing world.
