"Jade Speaks Up captures children who otherwise wouldn’t come to the attention of services. It is a non-identifying approach for whole classes to open up issues. It is a great opportunity to find out about how all domains are for children who can present as if everything is ok in their life."
"I highly recommend the training for any group that is going to deliver Jade Speaks Up. It’s an opportunity for the team to learn together and have a shared understanding of the content and process. It will only strengthen the team to deliver a success programme. Andrea and Elaine were approachable and friendly facilitators, it made the learning easy and fun. I enjoyed the participative and shared learning approach and the feedback."
Emotional literacy, trust, and wise decision-making are critical skills for a student's personal and academic growth. But they’re often not taught in school within the context of student life beyond the classroom. Without these foundational skills, students may face difficulties in managing their emotions, leading to disruptions in the classroom and obstacles in their personal growth.
In 2022 NZ Police made 182,500 visits to homes to incidents of family harm.
Fewer than 25% of incidences are ever reported to police or other helping agencies. This tells us that in every school community, there are children impacted by family harm.
Children exposed to family harm - verbal, emotional or physical - struggle to learn and fully engage with class activities until their need for safety is addressed.
At Jade Speaks Up, we've tailored our programmes to equip you with the tools to counter challenges such as family violence, anxiety, bullying, and the influence of social media.
Our team of highly experienced facilitators and trainers aims to empower you to foster safe, understanding environments for your students, making you the catalysts of change they need.
Our programmes are flexible and designed to fit seamlessly into your existing teaching schedule, ensuring your students receive these life skills without disrupting the regular flow of teaching.
Absolutely. Our programmes are flexible and have been designed to be adaptable to various teaching environments, considering students' diverse backgrounds and needs. They’ve been specially designed for school years 5-8.

Yes, our programmes come with comprehensive resources to aid in the implementation of the strategies learned in your classroom. This includes hard copy and online manuals with lesson plans and additional teaching resources.
All programmes are developed to align with Levels Two, Three and Four Outcomes of the NZ Health and P.E Curriculum, ensuring that they contribute to your existing curriculum. The deliverables of our programmes will be updated before 2025 when the new Health Curriculum will be implemented.
Our programmes are interwoven with Te Ao Māori and Te Whare Tapa Wha models, and developed with significant input from Māori and Pacific educators, ensuring cultural responsiveness and relevance.
No specific prerequisites are required for the Building Belonging and You Good? You Good! programmes. However, for Jade Speaks Up, you must first complete either the Building Belonging or the You Good? You Good! course.
We offer ongoing support following course completion. This includes an optional online supportive coaching session, resources to assist in the implementation of strategies and a community of educators for peer support and knowledge sharing.
