What is the course?


This is a Targeted Stage 3 Training 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.


Refresher Training

In order to continue learning after the course ends you have the option to purchase our annual license renewal, this allows delegates to access online resources, receive regular updates and develop a peer network. In addition to this you are welcomed to attend a refresher training day one year after completion of the course (subject to renewal fees).  For information on costs click here and do get in touch if you would like more information on the refresher training days.
