Place2Be's Senior Mental Health Leads training programme

Book your place on one of our intakes below. Department for Education (DfE) grants are now available for training starting in the 2024 spring or summer academic terms. Applications need to be completed by 31 March 2024.

If you would like to start your training in the 2024 Autumn term, you can reserve your place on one of our later cohorts. Schools will not be invoiced until grant funding has been confirmed.

Eligible schools and colleges can now claim a second grant if a previously trained Senior Mental Health Lead left their setting before embedding a whole school or college approach to mental health.

The dates listed for each group refer to the live interactive group sessions, which are a mandatory part of the course.

Please be aware that your official course start date will be earlier than the dates listed below. To view the schedule for each cohort, please click on the Programme Schedule for the relevant cohort. You will receive an invitation to our online learning platform, Hive, around 2 to 4 weeks before your first live session.
