Our CPD training – accredited by the CPD Standards Office – will benefit anyone working with young people. When we understand the developmental journey and changes to brain structure that occur through childhood and adolescence we can adapt our practice to meet their needs. Being able to spot the signs of mental distress is vital for early intervention and the prevention of long term illness. Helping young people develop self-awareness, self-management, healthy self-esteem and self-efficacy is essential for mental health and wellbeing. Creating healthy cultures of learning builds growth mindsets and allows young people to succeed without putting them under undue pressure.Create your own programme
