How we can support you?
MWC teams consistently work within schools across the UK, presenting sessions designed to support children’s growth socially,emotionally and spiritually. MWC teams use a unique curriculum that has been specifically designed to help students flourish using Christian ethos and values. The programme focuses on character building, promoting personal and social responsibility, enhancing decision making and problem-solving skills while supporting student’s emotional health and the navigation of their futures.
