Welcome to the Diploma in Leading and Mentoring Schools, as part of the DfE approved training. Over the course of your studies, we will be exploring 8 units. These are self-paced, but you are encouraged to participate in each of the activities as part of the modules to allow you to develop an in depth understanding of child mental health and the ways that this affects their access to education, as well as the considerations of forming and embedding a new mental health approach.

You can access your course modules through the platform, and your course manuals will be posted directly to your school providing you with a paper copy of the resources. To move through the materials click ‘mark as complete’.
