Sandra Ranson and I have met with Janet and we're both keen to facilitate a small group of scout volunteers who are interested in undertaking the 'understanding children and young people's mental health' course in early 2019 as a work group; perhaps meeting regularly and sharing the learning aspects together. The flyer for this course is attached to this email.
Adults could sign up individually to one of the other modules on an individual basis.
If you're interested in finding out more, Sandra and I will host a meeting with Janet Henderson from Key Training to discuss the sign-up procedure and the course programme.
