Our Senior Mental Health lead course has been approved for the DfE quality assured list of funded courses
The Department for Education (DfE) is offering senior members of staff in schools and colleges in England the opportunity to receive training grants to develop their knowledge and skills in support of the implementation of whole school/college approaches to mental health and wellbeing.
In order to ensure the quality of courses on offer, the DfE asked providers to undergo a rigorous quality assurance process, led by the Carnegie Centre for Mental Health in Schools, based at Leeds Beckett University. Schools will only be able to claim DfE funding for courses on the DfE quality assured list.
We are delighted to announce that our senior mental health lead training course covering learning outcome 4 (staff development) has been approved for inclusion in the DfE quality assured list, which will be published in September 2021. Further information about DfE grant funding will be made available on gov.uk in September.
This is a beginner-level course aimed at senior mental health leads (in primary and secondary schools) that are new to the role and/or have not previously completed senior mental health leadership training.As it is a virtual course, it doesn't matter where in England you are based.
The course will consist of a 2-hour virtual (live/real-time) workshop via Zoom in small group sizes (max 12 people), a 2-hour virtual (live/real time) group coaching/supervision session, e-mail support from your trainer for up to one year, and approximately 3 hours of self-directed learning.
