How will your pupils benefit?
Many young people get a great sense of satisfaction, purpose and fulfilment when supporting others and this can also help with the maturation process. They will also derive a personal benefit as they can use these tools and techniques to coach and mentor themselves.
Their Certificate of Completion will acknowledge their completion of a coaching and mentoring training that they can use on their CVs or when applying for positions and places with other schools, universities, colleges, organisations or future employers.
How will your school benefit?
Pupils who do this workshop will be empowered to help and support younger pupils and themselves to live happier, healthier and more productive lives. This has the potential to strengthen and unite the entire school community and boost overall performance, mental health and wellbeing. This is because it promotes kindness and increases access to support– especially for a school that has limited or over-stretched resources or where there are pupils who refuse to access traditional and adult-led support services because of stigma. A pupil coaching and mentoring service can also be a useful catch point for pupils with more serious issues who are then referred to specialists for appropriate assessment, support and/or treatment.
Where does training take place?
All training sessions can be done in person if your school is based in London or neighbouring counties or via a webinar if your school is based outside these areas. To check if your school qualifies for training in person please call us before purchasing this training course.
How long will it take?
Will there be any training materials and how will these be distributed to pupils?
Before delivering this workshop we will send your school the PowerPoint slides that will be used in the workshop and a Handout. Please ensure that all pupils have a copy of the Handout ready for the workshop and that the slides are emailed to them after the workshop. If the school wishes it can also print out the slides for the pupils and make space next to each slide for notes. Please note that the PowerPoint slides will be saved in a PDF format so you will need to check with your IT team how to display/view them in full screen before the workshop.
