Training Overview


This course is 2-full days of training either online or in-person. 

Through a train-the-trainer format, you will be equipped with all the skills and tools to implement Take Five across your entire school. You will be led through information on why emotional health and being ‘trauma-informed’ is so critical for learning, attendance, and overall wellbeing. You will learn the practical ways Take Five helps to release toxic stress and trauma, and how it builds positive, life-long emotional wellness. You will also be led through the Ambassador Programme for Key Stage 1 and 2, which is the leadership aspect of the Whole School Programme. During the course, there is time to practise and integrate all you have learned throughout the day.
