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.


Thursday 28th February 2019 – The Loft – 10am – 2.30 pm (30 mins lunch built in)

Tuesday 7th May 2019 – San Souci – 10am – 2.30 pm (30 mins lunch built in)

Tuesday 14th May 2019 – San Souci – 10am – 2.30 pm (30 mins lunch built in)

Note there is a half hour lunch break built into the programme but as we are unable to provide lunch, delegates will need to make their own arrangements.

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.

Finally, just to reiterate this  training is only available to those Schools buying our HR Advisory service.  Any Schools not buying in who wish to enquire about this training can contact Deana Leonard or myself.
