OVERVIEW
The mental health training market has boomed in the last 5 years, with courses such as Mental Health First Aid now incredibly popular amongst employers. Job applicants and staff with recognised skills in this area are considered increasingly attractive to organisations. 

But with that boom has come a plethora of different courses – from personal well-being to mental health advocacy, stress management to suicide prevention. 

Organisations considering introducing such courses face a huge breadth of choice, and often some confusion as to which options might work best for them. Beyond selecting the “right” product, there’s staff competence in delivering the subject, safe recruitment of learners onto a course that may contain sensitive materials and a lack of clarification as to which qualifications are fully fundable and which aren’t. 

This webinar will be delivered by an organisation that is very active in this market, but not looking to deliver Government-funded provision. You can be sure of an honest and thorough walk-through of options and hazards, to enable you to answer the question “what, if any, courses should we run?”

OBJECTIVES
This webinar will focus on:
– Why mental well-being is high on the education agenda
– What subjects the training might cover
– The potential pitfalls of delivering mental health training
– Qualification options
– The role of unaccredited learning and pastoral support

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Managers and leaders from the skills sector considering mental health training for the 16+ market.

OVERVIEW

The Coronavirus Pandemic and resulting lockdown presented unique challenges for all of us – creating problems we hadn’t previously encountered and forcing the implementation of new ways of working, without notice.

Every person and every organisation had a unique experience, but what we wanted to uncover was – what were the experiences we shared? And what can we learn from it all to enable business recovery? In July and August of this year, supported by Bud, AELP surveyed the provider base to better understand how their organisations had coped with the challenges of lockdown.

This webinar will outline the results not only of the survey, but of follow-up interviews conducted with many respondents where we were able to unpack with them some of the hard data and get a much better flavour of how the sector coped – of what lessons were learned, what will be taken forward beyond the lockdown/pandemic period – and of course, what didn’t work so well!

OBJECTIVES

This webinar will enable providers to:

  • Compare their own experience against those of the wider sector
  • Share best practice and learn from mistakes
  • Plan for future events of this nature such as a second wave, or a local lockdown

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

The survey was aimed at front-line providers and the results are therefore likely to be of most relevance to organisations directly delivering work-based learning – in particular apprenticeships. Staff with responsibility for contingency planning will also find this of benefit.

Title:
LiveCareerChat@Lockdown No 4 – Youth Transitions: Creating Pathways to Success

Date:
6th July 2020

Time:
3pm – 4pm (UK time)

Dr Anna Riggall, Head of Research, Educational Development Trust (EDT) England
Dr Deirdre Hughes OBE, Research Director, DMH Associates
Graeme Smith, Research and Evaluation Executive at Skills Development Scotland

This webinar presents new international research findings on youth transitions. Societies everywhere are undergoing a deep transformation. More than one in six young people have stopped working since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic (ILO, May 2020) while those who remain employed have seen their working hours cut by 23 per cent.

“The pandemic is inflicting a triple shock on young people. Not only is it destroying their employment, but it is also disrupting education and training, and placing major obstacles in the way of those seeking to enter the labour market or to move between jobs.”

New youth policies and innovative practices will be essential to address a potential tsunami of youth unemployment and prolonged transitions from schooling to the world of work. We will present findings from a new international ‘think piece’ drawn from 105 research reports on school to work transitions – starting with career-related learning in primary schools and beyond, up to the age of 25 years old. 

The webinar is limited to 500 delegates, so register your place quickly so you do not miss out.  Places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Hope you are able to join us!

You’ll learn more about:

  • how SEND learners are now high profile in the EIF
  • why you should ensure that you quickly identify any additional learning support needs and plan learning to meet these needs
  • why it’s important to individualise learning and support to meet learners’ needs and help them embed concepts into their long-term memory
  • why impact is so important and how you can help learners improve, develop and achieve

July 27, 2018
0

Thursday 2nd August 2018 | 12 – 1pm. This webinar will discuss some basic information about neurodiversity and what aspects need to be considered when developing contract solutions. It will provide an opportunity for shared discussion.

Neurodiversity-a key consideration for contract development in prisons, with NEETs, and in Youth, Work and Health settings.

In recent times the term Neurodiversity has been used as a term encompassing 1 in 8 individuals in the general population, 1 in 4 in the unemployed and 1 in 3 in the prison population who may have some specific barriers to engaging in learning and gaining employment.

These include conditions such as ADHD; Autism Spectrum Disorder ( Condition), Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia and Developmental language disorders. The term ‘Hidden impairments’ have also been used as an umbrella term as the challenges may not always be obvious to others.

There is also increasing interest in the potential skills and talents that individuals can showcase if appropriately supported and reasonable adjustments made.
