    Back on Track: Wellbeing support covers consultancy and training on how to respond effectively in the context of current and post-COVID-19 to support mental health and emotional wellbeing, behaviour, relationships and wider wellbeing,. Tailored support can be provided to primary and secondary schools.

    A two-part webinar training programme, fully-funded by the Department for Education, is being run in the autumn and spring terms for Hertfordshire schools: Wellbeing for Education Return. This training will focus on mental health and behaviour through recovery approaches. 

    The ‘Wellbeing for Education Return’ training forms part of the government’s national project designed to support schools and colleges on responding to the wellbeing and mental health needs of children and young people, staff and parents as a result of coronavirus. This training has been developed by MindEd and Anna Freud Centre and will be delivered by Herts for Learning’s Wellbeing Advisers on behalf of Hertfordshire County Council.

    All Hertfordshire schools and colleges are required to undertake this training and there are a number of dates to choose from for each webinar. Please visit the HfL CPD Hub for more information, dates and times and to book places.
