Mental Health First Aid Training

A series of four comprehensive training seminars led by Zoe Woodworth from Charlie Waller Trust on:

· 14th September 2021 from 9:00am - 12:00pm

· 28th September 2021 from 9:00am - 12:00pm

At Charlie Waller, the vision is of a world where people understand and talk openly about mental health, where young people and those who support them are equipped to maintain and enhance their mental health and wellbeing, and have the confidence to seek help when they need it.

The Charlie Waller Trust was created by the Waller family in 1997 in response to the loss of their son and brother Charlie to suicide having suffered from depression. They have since become one of the UK’s most respected mental health charities. Their overarching mission is to educate young people and those with responsibility for them - so parents and carers, teachers, college and university staff, employers, GPs and Practice Nurses - about their mental health and wellbeing.

This course will train you as a Youth Mental Health First Aider, giving you:

· An in-depth understanding of young people’s mental health and factors that affect wellbeing

· Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues 

· Confidence to reassure and support a young person in distress

· Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening 

· Knowledge to help a young person recover their health by guiding them to further support – whether that’s through self-help sites, their place of learning, the NHS, or a mix – engaging with parents, carers and external agencies where appropriate

· Ability to support a young person with a long term mental health issue or disability to thrive

· Tools to look after your own mental wellbeing


Everyone who completes the course will receive:

A certificate of attendance to say you are a Youth Mental Health First Aider

A Youth MHFA manual to refer to whenever you need it

A workbook including some helpful tools to support your own mental health

BASIC Coaching Method

As qualified Trainers of Andy Buck’s BASIC Coaching Method, Two Rivers Institute are pleased to be able to offer the BASIC training course to middle and senior leaders to give them the clarity they need to coach with confidence.

Best-selling author and speaker Andy Buck has taken the latest thinking and research from the field of coaching and translated it into his tried-and-tested BASIC method, which is easy to learn and simple to apply whether you are supporting one of your colleagues to overcome a challenge, helping a member of your team to prioritise their tasks, or want to explore the concept of instructional coaching.

This programme is aimed at in-school coaches, Early Career Framework mentors, Lead Practitioners, Senior Leaders and support staff who are looking to develop coaching strategies to aid the growth of colleagues within the context of their role. 

During this two-day programme, senior and middle leaders will learn how to use a coaching approach in their everyday leadership and 1:1 conversations to promote the very best outcomes for pupils. We will look at the key principles and practice around coaching and how leaders can develop their coaching leadership style. The programme is very interactive and includes an opportunity for participants to practise coaching with time for reflection and feedback

Early Years Seminar #2

Becky Reffell, Strategic Lead for Early Years at Twynham Learning will be leading a series of six seminars over the course of AY 2021-22, each seminar with a separate  Early Years focus. These seminars are aimed at practitioners, aspirant leaders and established leaders alike and there is a completely open invitation to any local teachers to attend any event. The sessions are offered pro bono publico.

Session 2 - How to demonstrate Impact within the Early Years and Key Stage 1

Ensuring teacher workload is manageable is high on the agenda, but how can we demonstrate the impact of what we do? This session will explore different approaches to ‘evidence’ and provoke thinking in relation to the questions; who is it for? What does it show? How best can I present this?
