Training

The Manchester Healthy Schools Programme has been designed to enable all schools in Manchester to gain access to high quality and effective training in order to support better health outcomes for children and young people within their provision. Schools need to have completed the Health Check to be engaged with the programme and to be able to access this free training. Please note, whilst many of our training courses are part of our 'universal' offer available to all schools, some courses are available for priority schools only. Please see individual training courses for further information about which training your school is able to access.
