The Dove Self-Esteem Project: free resources for your school

Sign up HERE to download our free teacher resources so you can run your own self-esteem workshop in school

Parent Zone is delighted to be working with the Dove Self-Esteem Project.

The project has already helped over 20million young people worldwide, encouraging them to feel positive and confident about themselves.

The project’s PSHE Association-approved expert teaching resources are used in school to enable you to deliver your very own self-esteem workshop. They include everything you need, from a teacher training guide, to student worksheets and presentations. The Dove Self-Esteem project also has resources for parents to use at home with their children. All of these resources are now available free via a dedicated Dove Self-Esteem Project area on Parent Zone.

Low self-esteem can not only affect young people’s quality of life and confidence, but it can also affect pupils’ performance in schools. 9 out of 10 girls with low self-esteem will opt out of fundamental life activities, such as putting their hand up on class, joining a team and engaging with loved ones.

New pressures from social media and the digital age mean these issues are growing – and they are increasingly affecting boys as well as girls.

Our expert resources for teachers and parents are based on comprehensive research, in collaboration with The Centre For Appearance Research (UWE) and evaluated by body image experts. The school resources are accredited by the PSHE Association.

Along with the Dove Self-Esteem Project pages on Parent Zone, our sister site,, will have separate articles aimed at parents.
