The Pastoral Development Programme has been designed and written by experienced practitioners in the field of mental health and education.
Learners can chose their own flexible pathway through the online modules and choose whether to pursue accreditation at one of the three qualification levels.
Schools putting multiple staff members through the programme and encouraging a whole school approach to mental wellbeing will be eligible for our accredited Therapeutic School status, a nationally recognised award.
Each module is accredited to be 10 hours of CPD.
The Pastoral Development Programme
Each module is delivered at the learners pace, online and features a full suite of interactive training methods. Learners can go at their own pace in their allotted CPD time. There are assessment points throughout the programme to ensure understanding. Support is always on hand should learners need additional help with either the learning content or technical support.

Learn how to take your previous Transactional Analysis training to a new level, using it to create whole school support packages and interventions. Supporting behaviour and wellbeing at both the acute and the early intervention stage.
