We offer a comprehensive core training programme for school and college staff on a range of topics relating to children’s mental health. All our courses have been developed with education staff in mind, with the content designed in response to needs of staff in a range of settings.
Our training aims to help staff understand key needs and issues in relation to children’s mental health, and increase their skills and confidence in supporting children within their school or college role.
We deliver 2-3 training sessions online weekly, each session lasting either two or three hours.
We also deliver training face-to-face for a full day every three weeks.
