Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Training

Course description

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) training seeks to prevent toxic stress and develop a trauma-informed workforce. Extremely stressful experiences in childhood can alter brain development and have lifelong effects on health and behaviour. ACEs are now understood to be one of the leading causes of everything from heart disease and cancer to substance abuse and depression.

Manchester City Council together with Manchester Healthy Schools are delivering a half-day training session to provide an awareness of ACEs and trauma.

Content will include 

· An introduction to ACEs 

· Exploring the impact on individuals 

· Looking at different types of trauma

· A focus on the protective factors that can build resilience

· Discussion of trauma informed practice.


This course is open to all staff who work within a school setting.


This course is provided free of charge to Manchester schools who are engaged with the Manchester Healthy Schools programme.
