Training & Education
Helping young people gain the confidence to make decisions about their own lives is an important part of our work. Education is more than formal schooling. That’s why we provide a range of education, skillsbased training and school support services. Our Access 2 Employment (A2E) service works with a range of supported family schemes offering work-ready support, careers advice and job opportunities.
Through our mental health intervention work, we have recognised the serious issues facing so many young children in our schools. As a result, we have developed and launched a new School Teacher Training Programme aimed at supporting teachers to understand the complexities that young people face with mental health problems and to train teachers to spot the signs at an early stage. This work has been supported by the introduction of our mental health app ‘Thrive’ which has already significantly improved the mental health of school children in YMCA Trinity Group’s region.
