This course is designed for all members of the school community. In order to become fully trauma-informed as a school, it is essential that everyone in the  school setting is provided with access to this course. Throughout the course, learners will develop a more detailed understanding of the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) on the life of a child, beginning with the start of a child’s life, pre-birth.

As a result of this course, empathy for the child will strengthen significantly which will enable learners to better understand the individual needs of children and, as a result, appreciate the importance of their efforts to improve the life chances of all children in a school setting.

This course is delivered by our expert facilitators who will bring their first hand experience and tailor the course to suit your learning needs.
