Arthur Ellis, Mental Health Support, who are experts within mental health, are one of the companies who are delivering training for the multi-academy trust Inspiring Futures Through Learning (IFtL) cross-trust INSET day on the November 4th 2019. The focus of this day is to inspire, promote and enhance the importance of the right climate for learning, for staff, pupils and families, which includes a focus on well-being and readiness to learn.
IFtL are a trust established by educationalists who understand that we all learn best when we feel safe, happy and valued; where families , schools and communities come together to ensure we grow and promote all areas of our development (social, emotional, well-being, educational and physical).
The Trust is committed to developing a family of schools whose purpose is to inspire the futures of all through learning together, who share the same values and ethos; where the team is constantly in the pursuit of development and excellence every day and where teachers of the future come to learn and develop their careers.
The INSET day is being attended by over 400 educationalists from not only the 12 existing schools within the Trust. The day will see all of IFtL’s schools from across Milton Keynes come to attend a wide selection of workshops, including some run by Arthur Ellis throughout the day, where teachers won’t just learn about what mental health is, the stats, the information but how to actively identify issues in themselves and others and gain the psychological tools to proactively and practically support those issues in themselves and the young people they educate.
Sarah Bennett, Chief Executive Officer of IFtL,
“Our whole purpose is to develop and grow together. To do this we begin with the individual – understand their needs, respect their voice and offer bespoke support for them to reach their potential. This is not about performance measure and data drops it’s about people – and all the complexities that brings with it…and that’s why we love it! We look after, we nurture, we have fun. The only way to achieve this is through offering guidance in good times and bad. We take a proactive stance so that all or our people – our children and adults are giving the space and time to be and become whatever their heart desires.”
Jon Manning, Managing Director of Arthur Ellis,
“We are delighted to be running our training throughout the day. With our 1:1 service for children and young people, that the profits from the day will go towards, and our mission to make the UK #IndependentFromIllness, this is one of our first steps into training teachers who are on the ground, working hard and seeing these issues in our children and young people every day.
It’s incredibly important that our children and young people remain well but that can only happen if the teachers have the knowledge, strategies and practical tools to keep themselves well in the first place!”
