About this event

DEVELOPING EMOTIONAL HEALTH PEER SUPPORT SYSTEMS IN SCHOOLSIn person training.

The session aims to help staff in Lancashire schools to develop peer support and mentoring systems that will enable pupils to offer support for other pupils’ emotional health.

What will I learn?

This training will cover how to develop an emotional health peer support/mentoring scheme in your school, including how to recruit and train supporters/mentors and how to evaluate the scheme. We will include a workshop element to give attendees dedicated time to consider how a scheme may work best for their school and what resources or support structures may be required.

You will be given practical strategies and resources to use with pupils that have been shown to be effective, including training exercises which can be used with peer supporters/mentors.

Extensive training resources will be provided in the session. All slides and additional training materials will be available to download after the session, to enable attendees to cascade the training within their school settings.

The LEHSS team are all qualified clinical psychologists and have experience working with CAMHS and other Mental Health services. They are experienced trainers who deliver training to adult learners at Lancaster University. Training follows evidence based research that is translated into what works for children and young people in school and college settings.

Who can attend?

This training session is only available to staff employed by schools and colleges within the Lancashire County Council area. Places cannot be allocated to people employed by other services or who work in schools outside this area. Please sign up using your school or college email to demonstrate your eligibility.

It is aimed at all school staff, especially SENCOs, pastoral leads, TAs and any other staff with specific responsibility for pupils’ emotional health.

What else do I need to know?

This training is free of charge for eligible staff. Further details will be sent out after you have registered on the course.

Please share this information with anyone else eligible to attend.
