DfE Funded Senior Mental Health Lead Training

We are proud to deliver DfE Funded Senior Mental Health Lead Training to education providers! The training is quality assured by the DfE and Carnegie Centre of Excellence for Mental Health in Schools for educational settings in the Yorkshire and Humber regions.

Our Trainers have extensive firsthand experience as Head Teachers so understand the unique pressures that School and College staff navigate on a daily basis. They currently work in a Mental Health Service supporting schools and children. You can learn more about our trainers HERE!

We deliver four different face to face training courses in our beautiful 16th century barn. This helps us to create an incredibly supportive and welcoming environment with a focus on personalised learning. This means Senior Mental Health Leads develop the specific skills and knowledge relevant to their roles and needs in a way that leaves them feeling confident, with clearly identified action steps to take afterwards. 

We strongly recommend attending all four of our courses as it ensures that the DfE Learning Outcomes for Senior Mental Health Lead roles are covered. However, you may choose to select courses on an individual basis to suit your particular needs. Either way, we suggest starting with Strategic Leadership for Change first as it lays the foundation for our other training courses!

All of our courses have been tailor made for Senior Mental Health Leads in Primary Schools, Secondary Schools, Colleges (Sixth Form and Further Education), Middle Schools, Special Schools and Alternative Provision. We limit each training course session to a maximum of 15 delegates so that we can provide excellent support during, and after, the course.

You can book onto any of our courses for £240 (plus VAT) per individual. We understand that budgets are always tight so if you book an individual onto all four of our courses then we will discount the total from £960 (plus VAT) to just £880 (plus VAT).

We can’t wait to see you, so please click below to book your course today!

STRATEGIC LEADERSHIP FOR CHANGE

Mental Health and Wellbeing in Schools and Colleges

DfE Course Code: SMHL029

This course has been quality assured for DfE grant-funded Senior Mental Health Lead Training.

We’ve designed this training course for Senior Mental Health Leads, already familiar with their role, who are ready to begin reviewing and developing their Whole School Approach. During the course, attendees will work side by side with other Senior Mental Health Leads to share tips and techniques that have worked in their setting. This often brings the added benefits of ongoing supportive relationships and access to a wider network that continues long after the course has ended.

We walk you through assessing your unique starting point, working out the strengths and areas for development within your context, empowering you to use those strengths to identify priorities and implement a personalised sustainable action plan. At the end of this course you’ll have the tools you need to effectively promote positive mental health and wellbeing as you bring about strategic change in your setting.

We also provide access to two flexible coaching sessions, with our expert trainers, over a three month period following the course so that you can be sure you’ve seamlessly bridged the gap between theory and practice!
