Adrian Bethune

Adrian Bethune is a teacher and Healthy Body & Mind Leader at a primary school in Hertfordshire.

In 2012, he was awarded a ‘Happy Hero’ medal by Lord Richard Layard at the House of Lords for his work on developing wellbeing in schools.

In 2010 Adrian made the life-changing decision to step away from a flourishing career in the music industry to follow his dream of becoming a teacher. His decision to move into teaching was motivated by volunteering on a mentoring scheme run by charity Chance UK.

Adrian mentored a 9 year old boy in Hackney who was being taught in a behavioural unit. He found the experience challenging and inspiring. He also volunteered to become a governor at his local primary school. These two experiences confirmed that working with young people was the path for him.

Adrian has become a committed and dedicated primary school teacher who has over nine years’ experience teaching across both Key Stages.
Adrian’s teaching practice has been strongly focused on the best ways of developing children’s levels of happiness and wellbeing, whilst ensuring they achieve their best academically.

Individual-Speakers-Quote

I laughed a lot and, at times, I cried……as some of the points that were raised certainly hit more than one raw nerve! This workshop has taught me how to start looking at things in a different way and I am hopeful that I will be able to incorporate some of the techniques learnt into my daily routine. A truly thought-provoking and uplifting experience!

Individual-Speakers-Quote

Adrian delivered a highly engaging talk which gave our staff an understanding of the reasons why students can suffer from anxiety as well as  plenty of practical ideas we can now use straight away with our students. Importantly, all of this discussion was well grounded in scientific research which Adrian made accessible to all.
