Career opportunities for young people

For many young people, getting some relevant education and training can be the doorway to employment, which is in itself an improtant aspect of good mental health and wellbeing.  I’d like to share three educational guides, put together by experts in each field, which have been brought to my attention:

Dental health care careers

Film career advice

How to become a hairdresser

Training in trauma

As Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) come under funding pressure, concerns about children’s mental health and well-being place great strains on schools. IMO, schools good do a great deal more by providing some basic trauma training for staff, in much the same way as school staff have basic first aid, fire and health and safety awareness, programmes that raise trauma awareness are central to providing a safe environment for every pupil.

Attachment, Trauma and Recovery

Attachment, Trauma and Recovery

A new five day programme for foster-carers working with complex and enduring needs is now available.  The programme aims to develop foster carers to provide high levels of support and enriching relationships for fostered children who have experienced early trauma and help make sense of their often fragmented and traumatic past, whilst safely managing behavioural difficulties.  The programme is interactive
and experiential, helping foster carers apply theory to practice.  It is structured on the principles of active learning, including self-directed learning, learning through practice, case-based “learning in context” and small group interaction.

Evaluating Training

In order to evaluate a recent training programme on attachment-informed practice for local authority foster carers, individual learning objectives were assessed on a 11-point scale (0-10) by participants .  The group identified  34 individual training objectives, with a mean score of 2.9 before the training.  Participants reviewed their subject knowledge against these goals post training. The mean score post-training was 7.9.  These subjective scales suggest that individuals found their particular needs were addressed by the programme.

Participants were also asked to evaluate the programme on a 10-item, 4-point satisfaction scale.  Items were: meeting aims and learning outcomes, applying training, relevance of training and training delivery.  The mean satisfaction score, which could sit between 1 and 4, was 3.78, indicating a high level of satisfaction with course content, learning outcomes and delivery.
