Is your school taking advantage of the NEW FREE Play Therapy Placement scheme?

Therapy when delivered to Play Therapy UK standards is an effective way of helping the 20% of primary school pupils who have an emotional, behaviour or mental health problem which  impedes their learning and sometimes results in disrupted classes.

With the start of the new academic year in September new trainees will become available to provide a therapeutic play service free of charge.  Over 300 from all over the UK took part in last year’s scheme which is run by our accredited training provider APAC in a partnership with Leeds Beckett University.  They will be undertaking the Post Graduate (level 7) Certificate in Therapeutic Play Skills.

Most trainees will have their placements agreed by November – if you need support for the emotional and behaviour needs of your pupils, please apply now.
