Event description

Description

A year long course accredited with CERTA (Open College Network) for 9 credits at level 3 starting in September 2018. The course includes 10 days face to face teaching and an estimated additional 50 hours of private study.

Course Dates: Exact dates TBC (day 1 and 2 of the course are confirmed). 10 days (9:30-4:30) 12th & 13th September 2018- July 2019

Learning Outcomes:

The course covers these core skills.

Assessment and Awareness:

  • Completing a holistic initial triaging assessment of the mental health needs of children and young people.

  • Carrying out specific safeguarding risk assessments for young people who harm themselves.

  • Making evidenced and appropriate referrals to CAMHS services.

Direct Interventions:

  • Appling basic attachment based therapeutic approaches (for example containment and deliberate use of self) which underpin effective interventions with children whose distress and behavior can disrupt their learning and that of others.

  • Using and explaining to others appropriate evidence based interventions for a range of common mental health issues such as anxiety and low mood which can reduce distress, teach resilience and reduce barriers to learning.

  • Designing and delivering individualised intervention packages for children and young people who have emotional and mental health problems which are preventing them achieving their full potential.

Evaluation:

  • Using a range of nationally recognized outcome measures for pastoral intervention. These can be used to provide quantitative evidence progress for individuals and groups of young people (for example for bids and inspections) as well as improving outcomes.

Consultation:

  • Increasing whole team mental health awareness through the use of consultation and by providing support to peers and colleagues.

Ideal for:

Staff in pastoral roles in schools, school nurses, cluster based and voluntary sector staff offering direct interventions with children and young people.

Trainer information:

The course is led by Lydia Burfield the CAMHS training coordinator. She is both an experienced qualified clinician and adult educator holding an MA in Clinical Education. Other trainers contribute according to their area of specialist knowledge. The course is supported by a robust internal verification team as required by CERTA the awarding body.

Skills:

This is a very practically based course. A range of skills are covered in depth from assessment to direct work techniques to consultation skills. As students learn a new technique or skill they are encouraged to try it out at work and then reflect on this experience in their reflective journals.

Knowledge:

For every new skill a foundation is built of theoretical underpinning. This allows students to adapt and creatively develop techniques learnt based on a firm knowledge of the theory and evidence base.

FAQs

What is the Structure of the Training?

The course is made up of three units each worth 3 credits with CERTA. They are:

1. Child and Adolescent Mental Health: Awareness and Assessment.

2. Child and Adolescent Mental Health: Interventions with Children and Young People.

3. Using and Delivering Consultation.

The units are progressive. Learners will be expected to attend the first (or equivalent) before progressing on to later modules. The course is designed to run over one academic year.

What is CERTA and what does this Accreditation Mean?

Our course is accredited as a regional unit by CERTA. CERTA is an Awarding Organisation registered by Ofqual. You can find out more about them at www.certa.org.uk

Our course is a 9 credit course accredited at Level 3. The academic standard of a course at Level Three is the equivalent of NVQ level 3 or A level. Our course is NOT a full Level 3 qualification. A full level 3 qualification would be 37 credits (if a Diploma).

I’ve Attended CAMHS Training Courses before; how much of this Learning is New Learning?

Over half of the teaching is only available as part of this course. Units 1 and 2 utilise some existing training workshops from the CAMHS training program. The assessments component of those units however is new and the structure of this is designed to maximise application of learning to practice. If you think you may have covered some of the teaching previously please contact us to discuss if this prior learning can be taken into account.
