Train the Trainer – Delivering Parent & Student Workshops

This one day course is designed to discuss a range of workshops and resources you can use to raise awareness amongst all students and parents. It enables schools to run many of the workshops identified here themselves – thus saving you money and equipping you with the tools to raise awareness in your setting.

As with our other Train The Trainer courses, you will leave with a training manual and trainer notes to guide you through delivery of a range of one off workshops. You can adapt and deliver these to parents and students aged 10 and over as part of PSHE provision, or to use for well-being awareness programmes, assemblies or parent briefings.
