More information

To ensure schools make informed choices about the training, YMCA Trinity Group, alongside statutory sector partners, have developed a Mental Health Training Competency Framework.

You are invited to view the YMCA’s recorded webinar to learn about the framework and how you can use it to undertake an evidence-based Training Needs Analysis. You will then be able to consult with experienced professionals before choosing the training you would like to access. You can access the webinar via the free-to access Knowledge Hub (additional materials available) or YouTube.

Please read the mental health training (Peterborough) application form and contact the team to access the framework toolkit before completing your application.

How to apply:

Please complete the mental health training (Peterborough) application form and email it to by 30 December 2021.

Please note that funding for this training will only be available until December 2021. Funding will broadly be available on a first come first served basis. You may be required to complete the training needs analysis tool to ensure the courses chosen are the most suitable for your needs.
