About the Course

Course Duration: 1h 30m (approx) online training + self-directed learning and activities + final assessment.

Anxiety and stress are very often linked. If addressed at an early stage, it can often reduce the impact in later years and lead to better outcomes in the future. All staff have a responsibility to look after the mental health and wellbeing of children and should have the necessary training to identify and respond to the warning signs of anxiety and stress.

Developed by Anna Bateman, mental health and wellbeing expert who works in an advisory role for the DfE, this essential CPD course provides you with the knowledge and skills to identify, respond to and develop preventative strategies around anxiety and stress to support children and young people.

Please note: The course consists of learning through video, task completion and further reading/research. Please consider this when planning and allocating your time. To successfully understand and achieve the objectives from the course, learners are expected to engage in all aspects of the learning process and complete all relevant activities to ensure they can successfully apply the knowledge and skills they have gained in their own setting.
