Mental Health First Aid - Instructor Training Program -


I am really looking forward to attending the following "Mental Health FIrst Aid instructor training program"  - starting early February.  It seems it has been a long time in the planning and waiting but finally all the things are in place to start next week. 

The legacy of our reserch project continues.

CPD continues 

On a seperate note I attended a workshop that was postponed from before Christmas. The workshop looked at enabling learners to develop self management tools for life, college and work.

WOW! - It continues - What an eventful Autumn term.

So it's been a while since my last blog entry and so much has happened since then. Like everything in education nothing stands still...

The End - or Is It?

August 2017.  I have been reflecting back on my time on the project, as the MHRP comes to an end, or is it?

I realise have faced many struggles challenges and opportunities, both personally and professionally.

Barnsley - WOW - a busy two days!

Well back from Barnsley

WOW - What a full on two days ……..  I must say from my perspective, it was really useful meeting with all the other members from group A, as it now feels much more supportive and collaborative in what we do moving forward.

Then back to work to process everything – with a report on the event and information to cascade down to My Manager – up dates for the tutors delivering on the project – partners – Stakeholders Steering Group – Service Users Steering Group –

Year One - What a ride - Hang on tight here's year two!

Update Blog

Wrapping up end of Phase one Blog

And headlong into Phase 2 !

Year one has come to an end – I have attended two curriculum planning sessions in London – the first collaboratively working on curriculums, but not yet knowing which working group I would be in moving forward. I found it a really useful session and I was working in what would have been my preferred group for Phase 2!!.

Welcome to my PADLET and Web Page..... here goes.......-

I have taken inspiration from Michele (thank you) and following her lead, I have also created a Padlet page. I too am building information on my web page -

Next job stats for phase one....  

It includes case studies, images of some learners work from some of the art sessions and some quotes from a range of classes all from phase one.

My aim is to be more proactive in capturing more of this type of feedback during phase 2
