Why a Resilience Survey?


Values-based Education's strapline is 'Nuturing Wellbeing and Resilience'.


Without high levels of either of these aspects within our lives, we are unable to function well, build many, strong, positive relationships or reach our potential. We have recognised this for many years; our work has been to support schools in creating authentic values-based cultures which, in turn, promote wellbeing and resilience for all.


We can now go further in this work. Working in partnership with a highly respected Australian organisation, Resilient Youth, we are bringing The Resilience Survey to schools in the UK.


Dr Andrew Fuller has worked for many years with our own Dr Neil Hawkes. His work with Resilient Youth and identification of The Resilient Mindset is making a significant difference to  the work of teachers and the lives of students.


Resilient Youth’s research shows that there are 40 key predictors of wellbeing and resilience in young people.

The more of these 40 resilience assets a young person has, the more likely they are to:


Achieve academic success                                                 impact.resilience
Be motivated to learn
Experience positive relationships
Complete schooling
Be persistent problem solvers
Show constructive leadership

and the less likely they are to:


Experience alcohol and drug problems,
Be violent
Leave school early
Have behavioural problems
Experience depression and anxiety.

Assessing the levels of resilience assets in schools and communities provides a powerful way to plan how to increase the wellbeing and resilience of young people while also building on their strengths.


How to Assess Resilience


Resilient Youth has developed and validated a 99 question, online resilience survey incorporating a series of reliable gold
standard measures including: The Developmental Assets Profile, The General Health Questionnaire and The Children’s Hope Scale.


This survey can now be purchased by schools in the UK through VbE.


Providing schools with the flexibility to choose who to use the survey with, it is available for a price per pupil.


This price is discounted for Member Schools. Click here to see Price List and discounts


A trained member of the VbE Team is part of the package and will guide the school through setting the survey up. Upon completion, they will evaluate and interpret the results with the school.

They will then be available to provide any further support the school feels it needs.
