A new TrailBlazer group is developing a government funded training scheme for SENCOs, Teachers, Teaching Assistants and School Nurses to become registered Play Therapists. 90% of the total cost (estimated at £17,000 over a three year period) would be provided for training at level 7 (Post Graduate), for each trainee, once the proposed scheme is fully developed.
We can’t yet guarantee that the scheme will go ahead and it will depend upon enough schools in your area becoming involved. Out of the 300 maximum capacity in 2020 there’s 121 places left. There’s no commitment on either side at present so don’t miss this opportunity. Register your interest now!
The training will meet:
- The new Ofsted inspection requirements that came into force this September;
- registration on the Professional Standard Authority’s Accredited Register of Play and Creative Arts Therapists;
- the principles of the new Mental Health Charter, being put forward as a blueprint for the reform of the 1983 Mental Health Act https://childmentalhealthcharter.com/
This is a marvellous opportunity for you to provide therapeutic support for your pupils with social, emotional, behaviour and mental health issues.
