Attachment & Trauma Training for professionals

Attachment & Trauma Training for Education Professionals – Session 2

Planning and delivery of trauma-informed support in education settings

These sessions are split over two dates, attendees are expected to attend both dates (Session 1 here), although Session 2 is also deemed to be suitable as a standalone session for any professional who has attended comparable introductory training in attachment and trauma and wishes to build on this.

It’s suitable for professionals working in the early years and primary education – e.g. SENCOs, inclusion leads, Designated Teachers for LAC/PLAC, teachers, teaching assistants, key workers, and education support staff. Session delivered by Emma Spillane a qualified teacher, CCS adoptive parent and experienced trainer.

The key principles and strategies covered within sessions can be beneficial for all students and staff (i.e. not limited to looked after or previously looked after children, though they will remain a key focus) and feel even more relevant to all due to the far-reaching impact of the very challenging past couple of years.


Per delegate for this session as a standalone: £60 – This cost includes light refreshments (Pupil Premium/Pupil Premium Plus funding can be used to finance this course).

Session 2

This second session builds on the foundation set out in session 1 and will be a highly practical course full of strategies, advice, tips and resources which can be taken back to settings and used right away.
