Inclusive educational communities

Our comprehensive qualifications framework embeds good mental health practice across the whole workforce in your early childhood education setting, school, or college. These courses deliver professional, accredited qualifications from internationally recognised awarding bodies.

Inclusive educational communities cover

We develop our accredited courses using the latest global academic and practice-informed research. You will identify and implement mental health improvements for your work with pupils, staff and parents. These changes foster inclusive communities where everyone belongs, feels understood and knows how to strengthen their mental health.

Combined, our qualifications provide a professional development progression ladder. From Level 2 to Masters qualifications, you can choose the appropriate level for your role, and the responsibilities you have for mental health. You retain these qualifications for your whole career.
