Our training approach
Because each year we deliver training to over 10,000 professionals, as well as setting the national agenda on children’s mental health, our courses are designed to reflect what’s really happening in your professional life.
Our courses provide you with everything you need to know on crucial topics like resilience, self-harm and the transition to adulthood. All courses are delivered by expert trainers who understand how to help you best support the young people and families you work with.
Each course delivers exactly what you need:
- Our courses draw on the insights from the thousands of children and young people, families and professionals that we work with every year.
- We value discussion and collaboration and run courses in a relaxed and supportive environment so you can build confidence in your new skills and reflect on your development.
- We keep things practical and lively by sharing experiences, giving practical tips and advice, sharing good practice, and exploring ideas through discussion and group work.
- We bring professionals from different disciplines together in one place to share knowledge and learn about young people’s mental health in different settings.
- We work with individual organisations to create bespoke training programmes based on their particular needs, ensuring that everyone’s learning objectives are met.
