PROVIDING TRAINING AND EVENTS TO SUPPORT BETTER HEALTH OUTCOMES

Training

Our training programme is designed to support Manchester school staff to meet the health and wellbeing needs of their whole school community.

To access our free training, schools need to complete the Healthy Schools’ Health Check to sign up to our programme. Once you have completed your Health Check, you will be invited to meet a member of our team to develop an action plan to identify the training, resources and support that you would like to access from our team of specialists. You can then choose from our planned calendar training sessions, or arrange a twilight or bespoke training session and 1:1 support.

Please explore all our training courses and events below.
