Alliance for Learning and Winston's Wish launch free trauma training for teachers

"Its great to be able to support education practitioners, who really are on the front line, with this innovative partnership."
Suzannah Phillips

The Alliance for Learning Teaching School (AfL) part of Bright Futures Educational Trust, has forged a new partnership with Winston’s Wish, the childhood bereavement charity. Together they are offering free CPD on how school staff can better handle the trauma faced when a close family member or friend passes away.

The training will be delivered online and will be led by Suzannah Phillips from Winston’s Wish, with a Q & A led by Lisa Fathers of AfL, who is a National Trainer with Mental Health England.

Director of Teaching School Lisa Fathers says: “It is a sad fact that our schools need to start to think about how we support children and young people with bereavement and loss, now more than ever. We will touch on grief, loss, trauma and self-care. We see this as an extremely important addition to our suite of school-based mental health CPD.”

Suzannah is the Head of Clinical Governance and Professional Development at Winston’s Wish and is responsible for designing and delivering training, leading the research and evidence department, developing services and leading on quality assurance across the organisation.

Suzannah says: “We are so pleased to be working with the Alliance for Learning to help spread our expertise across schools. It’s great to be able to support education practitioners, who really are on the front line, with this innovative partnership”.
