Please see below details of training that we are offering free of charge only to Schools who are buying our HR Advisory service

The training is delivered by myself (I have been an accredited Mental Health First Aid England Instructor (Adults) since August 2018, delivering this session within Solihull Council).

The course lasts for 4 hours and delegates must complete the whole course to receive the certificate of attendance from Mental Health First Aid England.

Please see the attached flyer (produced by MHFA England) explaining the content of the course  (which is to raise awareness of mental health issues in adults, including in the work place).  The Training is aimed at School Leaders/line managers who have line management responsibility.

I appreciate some of these dates are in the future  – if having booked a place, you are unable to attend due nearer the date please ensure you cancel from the course as I expect there to be a lot of interest in this training and we will be maintaining a waiting list.
