Effects of Positive Education during the critical post-school transition
Evidence for the benefits of positive education programs in improving well-being among high school students is growing. The sustained effects are, however, not known particularly at the post-school stage when young people are negotiating challenges in work, learning and relationships. Using a mixed method, longitudinal design this study will examine whether participating in school-based positive education assists young people during their post-school transition. The extent to which a new youth-led Positive Transition Program provides added benefits will also be examined using in-the-moment experience sampling and bio-data. Findings will help determine the utility of positive education to improve the transition experience for young people.
