In partnership with Place2Be, the UK’s leading mental health charity and the support of 11 approved suppliers on our Education Brokerage Framework, we were able to raise sufficient funds to pay for 20 Primary Schools in Havering to nominate a class teacher each to be trained as Mental Health Champions for their respective schools.
There was overwhelming interest from schools in this initiative with all twenty places available being taken up within hours of the information being sent to schools.
The programme, to be delivered by Place2Be, comprise 6 sessions spread over two school terms. The first three sessions will take place in May, June and July 2018 at The Centre for Engineering and Manufacturing Excellence (CEME) in Rainham, Essex. The concluding three sessions will take place in late September 2018, early October 2018 and late October/early November 2018.
This cohort of ‘Mental Health Champions’ will be upskilled and equipped to support children’s emotional wellbeing in their professional practice. They will gain enhanced capacity to understand, manage and improve pupils’ attitudes to learning. More importantly, these ‘Champions’ will be well placed to share ideas, effective practices and resources with other teaching and non-teaching staff at their respective schools.
We are thrilled to be able to provide schools with this opportunity through the Education Brokerage Service thereby further demonstrating the value of the Service and the strong partnership established with approved suppliers.
