Mental health training tailored for Schools

Quality, evidenced based training that is personalised to pupil, staff and school

We provide innovative, online staff training pathways in mental health and wellbeing for schools and other organisations working with children and young people. Our flexible, modular training system allows both staff teams and organisations the freedom to tailor their curriculum pathways and learning to their needs. The Pastoral Development Programme is evidence based, affordable and engaging. Our accredited training system awards certification at three levels and supports leaners with robust, accessible locality support networks.

Schools have the opportunity to gain a nationally recognised bench mark award, which celebrates their commitment to developing pupil wellbeing and championing staff development.

When we invest and develop the skills and knowledge of our teams, we know we improve outcomes for both young people and staff members, elevating well being, raising aspirations and positively impacting behaviour.

Who we work with


We provide pastoral and teaching staff with affordable training pathways that can be tailored to meet the wellbeing needs of the school or college. Our courses equip staff with the understanding, key intervention strategies and knowledge to make a meaningful impact on pupil wellbeing.

Local Authorities and organisations

We work with Local Authorities and organisations to create training pathways in specialist areas of mental health training. Our programmes create a deeper understanding and equip practitioners with knowledge, intervention skills and strategies.

Health and Social Care organisations

We create training pathways in specialist areas of need, from developing a trauma informed practice through to working with complex behaviours, creating a deeper understanding and equipping practitioners with knowledge, intervention skills and strategies.


Our courses are available to those professionals wanting to develop their skills in working with children and young people by studying towards an accredited programme of study. Modules can be taken individually according to training need or interest.

Parents & Carers

Whilst the programme was initially developed for schools, parents and carers have also found our courses invaluable as they support young people with different mental health and wellbeing needs, and they can select the modules that feel most appropriate.


Supporting those who support others, and training those who work with children in our wider community youth groups and voluntary organisations. We believe in the saying that "it takes a village to raise a child" and an informed village to raise a happy one.
