The ‘Wellbeing during the Coronavirus Outbreak‘ online training programme, developed by the Early Years Alliance and EduCare, contains five courses on:

  1. Understanding anxiety: a one-hour course to help practitioners understand anxiety and to support children and young people who may be experiencing it.
  2. Understanding low mood and depression: a one-hour course to help practitioners support children and young people who may be experiencing low mood or depression.
  3. Understanding self-harm: a one-hour course to help practitioners understand why someone self-harms and to provide helpful advice on how to support individuals who may be self-harming.
  4. Online safety: a two-hour course to help practitioners understand how technology is changing, the nature of children and young people’s online world, and the risk and protective factors when going online.
  5. Child neglect: a three-hour course to raise awareness of neglect and to help practitioners to understand the factors that may contribute to it, including the signs and indicators of neglect and how to report it. There is also advice on how practitioners can support a child or young person experiencing neglect.

All courses are free until the end of June. They are certified by the CPD-Certification Service with each course providing CPD credits and some being benchmarked at Level 2.
