Our evidence-based positive mental health training and CPD workshops support practitioners to develop skills that build resilience and promote and protect the wellbeing of children and young people.
About our of Training and CPD
Our approach to training is practical, positive and equips delegates with resources and strategies to improve wellbeing and resilience.
Our training focus is twofold. We support those who work with children and young people to develop their own wellbeing, so that they can more effectively support children and young people. We also train practitioners in wellbeing and resilience strategies, tools and resources that they can use in their work with children and young people. We have developed a range of popular training courses and CPD workshops that integrate positive psychology, coaching psychology, organisational psychology and a range of evidence-informed approaches to mental health and wellbeing.
Our training sessions are delivered in a range of organisations such as schools, multi-academy trusts, teaching school alliances, charities, local authorities, health, youth and community organisations. We have trained over 3000 practitioners from a range of backgrounds including; teachers, pastoral teams, school leaders, youth workers, social workers, school nurses, support workers, and volunteers.
We have been commissioned by Schools, Local Authorities, the NHS and a range of children and youth organisations to upskill professionals in improving the mental health of children and young people and to support their own wellbeing.
