The Early Years Alliance has partnered with CPD-accredited online training provider Educare to launch a well-being training programme.
The 'Wellbeing during the Coronavirus outbreak’ bundle contains five courses which are free to download until the end of June.
The aim of the programme is to ensure that practitioners have the knowledge and tools to support the health and well-being of children and young people, as well as their colleagues – ensuring that everyone in the sector is safeguarded and supported throughout the coronavirus outbreak.
The five courses are:
- Understanding anxiety: to help practitioners understand anxiety and to support children and young people who may be experiencing it.
- Understanding low mood and depression: to help practitioners support children and young people who may be experiencing low mood or depression.
- Understanding self-harm: to help practitioners understand why someone self-harms and to provide helpful advice on how to support individuals who may be self-harming.
- Online safety: to help practitioners understand how technology is changing, the nature of children and young people’s online world, and the risk and protective factors when going online.
- Child neglect: to raise awareness of neglect and to help practitioners to understand the factors that may contribute to it, including the signs and indicators of neglect and how to report it. There is also advice on how practitioners can support a child or young person experiencing neglect.
All courses are CPD-certified and feature downloadable certificates. Courses will remain available and free to all until Tuesday 30 June.
