Passport is a school based social, emotional and wellbeing learning programme for 9 – 11 year olds. The programme is taught to the whole class by teachers trained in Passport in the UK.
The programme is based on the same theory as Zippy’s Friends and Apple’s Friends – the Concept of Coping – but looks quite different. Engaging comic strip stories follow the adventures of Olya and Milo as they discover a secret world of fantastical creatures in the company of their friend, Elly the dragon.
The 17 sessions are divided into five modules which cover:
Children develop their own positive strategies to deal with problems through engaging activities: reading the comic strips, discussion, role-play and games. They use the colourful game board to find as many solutions as possible. There are also Home Activities to reinforce learning at home with the family.
Evaluations found Passport improves children’s coping skills, social skills, emotional literacy and academic skills.
