As a response to the current covid-19 pandemic we have taken the stance to develop new ways of delivering our courses, this will be done via digital platforms and once your place on our courses have been confirmed a link for the training will be sent to your email address.

Once we are able, courses will be delivered in interactive groups. We will ask all learners to complete an agreement which sets out the steps you need to take to participate safely in online learning which may potentially contain sensitive/triggering content e.g. when talking about suicide and some will require additional study time outside the session.

To apply for a place on any of these courses please click on the course date and complete the application form.  After completing the application form a member of our team will contact you by email to confirm your place (please do not assume you have a place until one of our team has confirmed your place). IF THERE ARE NO DATES AVAILABLE, PLEASE REGISTER YOUR INTEREST BY CLICKING ON FURTHER COURSES AVAILABLE AS MORE DATES WILL BECOME AVAILABLE IN THE FUTURE

In order to maintain a balance of delegate representation, organisations who require more than 4 members of staff to attend any training course are asked to contact Claire Yeoman on 01429 269303 to discuss options available or email

Public Health England has launched an updated Psychological First Aid (PFA) digital training module, aimed at all frontline and essential workers and volunteers:

  • The course aims to increase awareness and confidence to provide psychosocial support to people affected by COVID-19. 
  • PFA is a globally recognised training in emergency situations and PHE have developed this new course as part of their national incident response, and in partnership with NHS England, Health Education England, FutureLearn and E-Learning for Health.
  • The course is free, and no previous qualifications are required.
  • It takes around 90 minutes to complete and is also available in three sessions for the learner to complete at their own pace.
  • By the end of the course, outcomes will include: understanding how emergencies like the COVID-19 pandemic can affect us, recognising people who may be at increased risk of distress and understanding how to offer practical and emotional support.
