Karen Corfield BSc Hons with QTS, BA

Introduction to Karen: 

Karen has over 20 years’ experience as an assistant head teacher, pastoral deputy and newly qualified teacher mentor. Karen is also a highly experienced Iceland teacher tour leader and is passionate about the academic and pastoral benefits of overseas outdoor education. She has worked in a number of different schools with expertise in all the key stages.

Karen has authored a number of articles on the importance of pastoral education as well as delivering a variety of webinars, teacher CPD and presentations both for the Geographical Association and Discover the World Education.

Karen has recently developed the 3 R pastoral programme which provides strategies and support for all of the 3 pillars of education – the teachers, the parents and the students – at the heart of all she does is the student and how their emotional intelligence, resilience and relationships are developing.

Course Overview: 

This course will explore different strategies that can be utilised within the classroom and beyond to improve the resilience of students by looking at key areas of the 3 R Principles: Respect : Resilience : Relationships.

As teachers and parents there is so much that we can do to promote resilience in the younger generation that will contribute to better outcomes, academically, socially and emotionally. This course will explore the concept of “Being a Teacher Champion”.


Rita Pierson states : “Every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connections and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be”. A self-reflective course, participants will have a greater understanding of why listening, communication and increased autonomy will improve respect, resilience and relationships.


Participants will explore different strategies to promote the 3 R principles and have the confidence to implement these within their own practice.
