HeadStart Kent is a project funded by the National Lottery Community Fund which aims to improve the emotional well-being of those aged 10–16 years and achieve systemic and lasting change for young people and communities across the county of Kent. The project is focusing development within nine local groupings across the county and has adapted a framework provided by Daniel and Wassell (2002). This framework, developed by HeadStart Kent and KCA enables participants to understand factors affecting the resilience of children and young people including the Adverse Childhood Experiences that leave children traumatised. The training provides knowledge to enable practitioners to promote recovery and build resilience in work with vulnerable young people.
We are pleased to invite you to participate in this training which aims to increase the knowledge, skills and confidence of practitioners working with children and young people aged 10-16 in Kent to use conversations based on an awareness of this framework to support the children and young people to build their resilience, and to track the impact of this.
Between September 2019 and July 2020 there are a further 6 opportunities scheduled for practitioners to attend the course 'Building Resilience: Developing networks to support the mental health of children and young people’
Practitioners from any of these localities can attend the training events scheduled in any of the other localities, though we do recommend that, where possible, practitioners attend training within their own locality in the interests of developing a collaborative and supportive community of local learning and practice.
Registration for each of the training events will open up via a link below as each delivery phase approaches. To book for one of the training events scheduled so far, click on a link below.
