Wellbeing Mentor Training

Schools are increasingly relying on staff to support their students’ emotional needs and to deliver early intervention programmes for those who need extra help. This can be a challenging role as we know that the threshold for being accepted by statutory services is changing and that schools need support staff to deal with often complex presentations that may leave them feeling overwhelmed and deskilled.

This training comprises of 2 half day sessions to empower and upskill well-being mentors and support staff with the chance to think around how best to engage students on their caseloads.

We would encourage 15 attendees per workshop.

In our workshop we cover:

  • Active listening skills.
  • Barriers to engage with an adult.
  • How to engage children non-verbally.
  • Basic psychological theory.

These workshops are informal, interactive and experiential by nature with plenty of time for discussion, role play and to look at case studies.

We include the chance to experience a mini supervision session and to talk about students that staff are currently working with.

Cost: £900
