Professional Resources

Regular updates and thorough training help us to ensure that Designated Teachers and social workers are equipped to support children in care.

Coronavirus update

In light of the current uncertain situation with regards to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are currently delivering training through online platforms.

We want to continue to deliver high-quality training and feel that virtual training sessions may compromise this for courses that rely heavily on practical activities (eg, Principles of Theraplay). We're hoping to offer these courses in the summer term 2021, if restrictions are lifted.

The courses below aim to support Designated Teachers in their role, and to promote an understanding of the needs of children in care and previously looked-after children to all school staff.

Whole School training 

We also offer courses for all staff in schools, to help staff understand the impact of trauma on a child's development and capacity to cope in a learning environment. The course explores helpful strategies for staff and an overview of Emotion Coaching, which enables children and young people to manage their own behaviour by helping them to understand the different emotions they experience, why they occur and how to handle them.
