Free courses available to parents

Due to Government Funding in the Adult Education Budget, we have several Free online Level 2 Accredited Courses available to staff and Parents to help better understand some key issues around young people's mental health and wellbeing, along with a range of other qualifications that may help with developing their own careers.

Here's some of our most popular subjects available:

  • Children and Young Peoples Mental Health (Understand factors which may affect Young Peoples mental health, the impact that they have and how to support them with these issues)
  • Understanding Autism (learn how individuals process sensory information, understand characteristics, conditions, and how speech, language and communication differ in people with Autism)
  • Understanding Behaviour That Challenges in Children (supporting positive behaviour, effective communication & how to manage challenging behaviour)
  • Bullying in Children and Young People (develop your understanding of bullying, including how to recognise that bullying is taking place and how to take action to stop it)
  • Special Educational Needs and Disability (a detailed understanding of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, including equality and diversity in the context of SEND)
  • Adverse Childhood Experiences (Support children and young people affected, gain insight into how to strengthen their resilience and empower them to overcome the challenges they face)
  •  Mental health first aid and mental health advocacy in the workplace
  • Suicide and self-harm prevention
  • Teaching Assistant Qualification (L3 Diploma in Specialist Support For Teaching & Learning in Schools, must be already a TA)
  • Lunchtime Assistant Qualification (L3 Diploma in Playwork, must be employed by the school)

These are just the popular qualifications, but we have over 30 available

The qualifications are completed within a 6–8-week period, duration is completely dependent on each learner's ability as to how fast they complete and how many hours it takes. I would however advise that these are NOT 'short courses' that will take just a few hours to complete. As these are equivalent to a GCSE Grade C, you are required to write comprehensive answers for some questions.

No Exams or end point assessments are involved, the courses are purely Q&A based (including comprehensive answers) and are available to you 24/7. You can do as many as you like, however you can just do one at a time.

The only criteria the learner must meet to be eligible, is the following..   

  • Aged 19 or over on or before 31st August 2020    
  • Have lived in the UK/EU for 3+ years    
  • Not already on a Government funded course (Apprenticeship for example)
