Course Overview

There are four 1-hour units which can be completed in your own time. Each unit is made up of high quality and evidence-based audio, video, and written presentation materials, with exercise and actions for you to complete to enhance your learning. Each licence also includes the opportunity for one member of your organisation to join a live follow up webinar to discuss the course material and reflect on learning with our course tutors.

In order to effectively support the mental health and wellbeing of pupils we must first support the mental health and wellbeing of school staff. Staff who have good mental wellbeing are more likely to have the necessary resources to be able to manage and plan during or after stressful episodes whether with a pupil, a class, a colleague, an inspector or a parent. This training will outline practical tools and a framework for promoting and supporting staff wellbeing in school and colleges. It will draw on examples that have been tried and tested in a range of school settings. The training will give the opportunity for attendees to develop a project to take back to their settings and embed.
