The ‘Wellbeing for Education Return’ training forms part of the government’s national project designed to support schools and colleges on responding to the wellbeing and mental health needs of children and young people, staff and parents as a result of coronavirus. This training has been developed by MindEd and Anna Freud Centre and will be delivered by Herts for Learning’s Wellbeing Advisers on behalf of Hertfordshire County Council.
The training is designed to enable participants to cascade training and to provide guidance and resources for staff with a focus on wellbeing, resilience and recovery in the context of coronavirus to help facilitate a whole-organisation response. It is recommended that the training should be attended by an experienced teacher who holds pastoral responsibilities and has knowledge of the whole-school approach to mental health being used across the school/college for individual and group support and the mental health content being taught in the curriculum.
This training is tailored for Hertfordshire’s local context and will include signposting to local data and services.
The training is delivered through two webinars. Webinar 1 is two and a half hours long and Webinar 2 is two hours long. The sessions should be attended in order and by the same member of staff.
The training is government funded and there is no charge to Hertfordshire schools.
Key themes include:
- understanding learning and growth, wellbeing and resilience (neuroscience)
- implementation across the whole school/college
- actions to build resilience and wellbeing
- scenarios to explore the approaches
- curriculum implications
- to introduce psychological education approaches to support wellbeing and resilience. These can be used with children, young people, parents and carers
- to help prepare participants to use these psychological approaches to manage the impacts of coronavirus and to cascade this learning back in school/college
- to prioritise supportive robust and resilient relationships across the whole school/college community, thereby enhancing wellbeing for all
- to focus attention on how these approaches will help children and young people’s minds stay open for learning and growth and to also support staff and families
The choice of staff member/s to attend training will be important. It is possible for two delegates to attend from one school but the same members of staff should attend both webinars.
The nominated school/college staff, will be required to cascade the training and resources to facilitate a whole-organisation response to the impact of Covid-19 on wellbeing. It is recommended that this should be an experienced teacher who holds pastoral responsibilities and has knowledge of the whole-school approach to mental health being used across the school/college for individual and group support and the mental health content being taught in the curriculum.
