Thrive is delighted to announce that it is now a Department for Education quality assured provider of senior mental health lead training!
This new course, A Strategic Approach to Whole-School Emotional Health and Wellbeing, was assessed as meeting the required quality criteria for DfE grant-funded senior mental health lead training for schools and colleges.
The Thrive Approach certificated course has been designed for Designated Senior Mental Health Leads to align with Public Health England’s eight principles for promoting children and young people’s emotional health and wellbeing.
It will provide you with the strategic perspective and understanding needed to embed a right-time, whole-setting approach to promoting emotional wellbeing and preventing mental health issues for all students, enabling them to better access learning.
The experiential training, complemented with e-learning, is delivered by highly experienced trainers using interactive webinars over a five-week period.
You will explore how best to develop the culture and environment for the whole-school approach appropriate for your setting. The training covers:
- brain development during childhood and adolescence and the incredible opportunities this presents to support learners
- developing in-house capacity to support building emotional resilience of all children and young people
- giving students strategies for dealing with their own mental wellbeing and engaging them with their learning
- looking after the wellbeing of staff.
Grounded with established neuroscience, child development and attachment theory, this training will ensure you are effective in your role, and enable you to develop your team and the resources needed to meet the social and emotional needs of all students, with no one slipping through the net.
Fund your training with a DfE grant
Schools and colleges will also be able to access a grant to pay for Thrive’s approved training through a DfE digital service. Information on the conditions of the grant and how to access it will be available on the government website this September.
