Peer Support Training Programme

Gain knowledge and understanding by coming to our next peer support training programme

Did you know that peer support is routinely recommended by the DCSF and Ofsted? Whilst many schools in the UK have individual schemes which show good practice, it is rare to find co-ordination of multiple schemes within a local authority.

A co-ordination of schemes provides opportunities to network, share ideas and gain mutual support amongst both adults and young peers. By investing in our peer support training programme, we will cover

  • To take away from the day the means and the inspiration to set up a local scheme.
  • To deepen insight into impact of strategic approach to peer support
  • To discover how a centrally led Peer Support scheme enhances and promotes anti-bullying work across a number of schools.
  • To learn about a real way of reducing bullying across a Local Authority

Ideal for those who work in children’s services, TAHMS, CAHMS, support staff and learning support staff, the day will cover topics such as

  • A chance to view and purchase some of the nationally accredited materials successfully used and developed over many years.
  • How this work fits with an Inclusive Local Authority
  • Graphics workshop
  • The 3 legged stool of Peer Support: Selection, Training and Supervision
  • Key aspects and issues in running multiple Peer Support schemes from the centre
