Programme Overview

Wellbeing is now in the Ofsted framework. Having at least one member of staff in your school trained in Mental Health First Aid contributes massively to this agenda.

Course Outcomes

This half-day course is aimed at providing candidates with the knowledge to identify suspected mental health conditions and the skills to start a conversation and be able to signpost the person towards professional help.


You will gain a broadened awareness of mental health.


The qualification is valid for three years from the date of achievement. It is strongly recommended that the learner attends annual refresher training. The learner will need to complete the full course again to re-qualify for a further three years.
