Creating Brighter Futures for Young People in Education - Online Conference

Event code SCH 22/189 
Event description Good mental health and wellbeing has become increasingly important for children and young people to flourish in life and learning. The Education People’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Conference is returning in February 2022. We would love for you to join us whether you’re looking for new ideas, a fresh vision for your school/setting or developing strategies and toolkits.

Join us online for a full day of presentations and workshops delivered by leading experts and practitioners including Natasha Devon and Andrew Cowley. Benefit from proven strategies and resources to make a positive difference to your school.

Please see the attached documents for full information on the key notes and workshops, along with speaker biographies.


Proactive Wellbeing: don’t just react to mental health issues, but instead install a wellbeing culture that develops a preventative approach for staff, pupil, and family wellbeing.

Practical Strategies: build resilience, sustainable strategies, support transition and gain new approaches to support pupil and staff whose mental health has deteriorated throughout the pandemic.

Wellbeing Toolkits: gain access to high quality resource recommendations to enhance the emotional health of people in your school communities.

Key Topics Include:

Staff wellbeing / Managing pupil anxiety and low mood / Trauma informed practice / Inclusive Wellbeing / Preventing Teacher Burnout / Therapeutic Interventions / Leading cultures for wellbeing / Developing wellbeing curriculums

This year we are offering delegates the flexibility to choose between attending the conference venue (Ashford international Hotel) with the opportunity to network, or joining the event virtually through our online events platform. If you wish to attend at the venue please book Event Code: SCH 22/188

This session will run as an interactive Zoom session. Delegates will be sent the link no later than 24 hours before the start date. Please ensure you are able to access Zoom at least 1 hour prior to the session. Please note that these are not recorded and therefore not available to watch at a later date and delegates need to attend as a live session.
