Grow and Rise Intervention - Train the Trainer

face-to-face | 1 Full Day or Two Half Days - In-house | Your school

Course description

"Grow and Rise”, is a low level SEMH, 6-session intervention programme that can be delivered by teaching and/or pastoral staff for children of upper Key Stage 2 in primary schools, and for Key Stage 3 and 4 in secondary schools. The programme has been adapted from the Boost programme and explores different themes and aspects of wellbeing. The programme aims to promote self management and introduces children and young people to ideas, tools and strategies for improving mental wellbeing that they can integrate into their daily lives. All tools have been selected for their evidence base or suitability in the context of this course.


Please note that the programme is education and NOT therapy for mental health problems; therefore, it is not suitable for pupils who require this. It is however suitable for pupils who would like to improve their wellbeing. The aims of the sessions are highlighted below:

  • Know how to improve your well-being; we look at what wellbeing means (e.g., how confident we feel, how we cope with life etc.) and the techniques we can use to improve it.
  • Understand yourself more; we explore some useful models for helping us understand why we think, feel, and behave as we do.
  • Understand how stress impacts on you and know how to manage it better.
  • Recognise and challenge thoughts that are stressful, upsetting or just unhelpful.
  • Feel better about yourself, feel more confident, improve your self-esteem.
  • Be able to communicate better – we look at some useful techniques for helping us to communicate our needs better.


The training consists of 2 half day sessions, at a time convenient for you. During the training, the trainer will deliver a condensed version of the 6 sessions that delegates will then be able to deliver to pupils in the future. The programme is for teaching and/or pastoral staff working with children in upper Key Stage 2, and Key Stage 3 and 4. Please email zain.iqbal2@mft.nhs.uk for more information.
