Train the Trainer Mental health champions course
To address the pressures impacting the well-being of both students and teachers, we have developed a series of Train the Trainer programmes. Each programme aims to equip staff with tools to support their own and students’ mental wellbeing.
Please note: To help in these challenging times, we are offering a 15% discount to any setting that books one of our new or existing courses before 1 July 2021; simply quote YMCA2122CALENDAR on booking.
What is the course?
This is a Targeted Stage 3 training course within our newly approved Competency framework. This 3 day course covers seven modules in our enhanced training portfolio. The modules are; Building Resilience, Anxiety and Depression, Self-Harm, Risk Taking Behaviour, Body Confidence, Substance Misuse and Sexual Health.
Due to the pandemic, this course will be offered virtually, and split into manageable sessions. Therefore modules will be delivered in six lots of 3 hour sessions across a period of six weeks.
Attendees will learn about mental health, how trauma develops and how best to support young people with specific needs. There will also be opportunity to consolidate learning and consider how to apply learning to your own setting.
Additionally, attendees will leave with a training manual which includes worksheets and trainer notes to support delivery of the workshops. You will also gain access to an online resource with presentations and updated materials to help you with your training delivery for the 12 month period following the course.
Towards the end of the initial 12 month licence period, you have the option to purchase our annual license renewal. As well as continued access to online resources, you will also receive regular updates and develop a peer network. In addition to this you are invited to attend a refresher training day one year after completion of the course (subject to renewal fees). For information on costs visit the Mental Health Champions page and do get in touch if you would like more information on the refresher training days.
