Continuing Professional Development for School and College Staff 

We are passionate about providing training within the education setting to help staff to better understand and support young people's mental and emotional health.  Our sessions are interactive and positive, delivered by enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff, working in partnership with your school or college.

Sessions are generally planned to last for one and a half hours, though we are able to be flexible around timings. All sessions are interactive and contain both theory and practical strategies to implement. We can also offer bespoke CPD upon request for a small fee.

To book staff CPD, email us or contact your named Education Link Worker directly.
