Trusted Emotionally Available Adult (TEAA) Universal Training

Please note, although this training is universal, we highly recommend someone in a leadership position attends Part One, e.g. SENCO, Mental Health Lead, DSL, along with someone from the pastoral/wellbeing/PSHE team.
 
 
Description
This workshop is offered to ALL staff in every school/college in Gloucestershire. The training compliments other training packages available through GHLL including:
    • MHFA (Mental Health First Aid England Training)
    • Sometimes my Brain Hurts
    • Understanding Self Harm
    • Equalities and Transgender Awareness in Schools
The training will be delivered in two parts. 
 
Part One: 
09:00 - 12:30 -  For senior leaders accompanied by a colleague from a pastoral/wellbeing/PSHE team.
 
The training will enable the development of listening skills and explore good practice. Participants will have the opportunity to share what works well and hear examples from other settings, before considering how to establish a structure within their own setting to ensure there is a TEAA for their pupils. They will also have their own skills reaffirmed by:
    • Gaining a greater understanding of their own mental health and the importance of self-care
    • Feeling more supported in their role as a Trusted Emotionally Available Adult
    • Having the opportunity to practise empathetic responses and listening skills
 
Part Two: 
13:00 - 15:30 -  For TAs/pastoral/wellbeing/PSHE staff; Optional for senior leaders
 
Only delegates have attended Part One are eligible to attend Part Two.

This session will involve the opportunity for practitioners to explore ways to work supportively as a TEAA within their professional limitations. Resources, ideas and practical activities for TEAAs to use in schools will be shared with participants, to support pupils with identified concerns such as:
    • Worry
    • Sleep
    • Self-esteem
    • Confidence
    • Bereavement
    • Coping with Change
    • Conflict
    • Friendships

Please note, the resources are currently designed for use with KS1 and KS2 children, although some can be adapted for use with KS3 pupils. We hope to develop more secondary resources later in the year.

GHLL Primary Resources Overview

During this workshop, GHLL lead teachers will be available to talk you through the various GHLL primary resources, all of which have been developed by practising teachers to support your pupils in their physical and emotional development. The Lead Teachers can advise on how you can build the resources into your school’s current PSHE curriculum, and share ways in which they have been implemented in other schools and the outcomes they have provided.

You will have the opportunity to discuss methods to measure the impact of your PSHE teaching, and ways in which the children’s learning and understanding can be recorded and assessed.

Some of the resources explored in this session will include:

    • Counting Sleep
    • Make Me a Superhero
    • Peer Mediation
    • Understanding Dementia
    • Keeping Myself Safe
    • Focused for Learning
