Facts4Life switched its training to online sessions in July and evaluations from schools have been extremely positive:

“Very clear. Good balance of detail and info with activities so informative and hands-on. A good chance to clarify the key messages and introduce the resources.”

“Some really good ideas/games to take forward to teachers for relatable classroom use. Excellent links to new statutory guidance.”

We are announcing further online courses for Primary teachers to help young people to develop resilience in these challenging times. This invitation is extended to one or more teachers from your school. Please book early as numbers will be limited to ensure participants have every opportunity to interact during the training.

  • complements key elements of the PSHE curriculum
  • helps to create a climate for physical and mental health issues to be addressed

Interested in in-house training?

As an alternative to training with colleagues from other schools, we also offer in-house training online (or face to face if appropriate) where we are able to train a wider group of your teachers and teaching assistants together.

Please let us know if you would like us to arrange a time for this. This is free to Gloucestershire schools.
