Training – Greater Manchester and Cheshire
September 2021 to July 2022
Psytribe’s ELSA training course provides ELSA accreditation for Learning Support Assistants in schools. As an accredited ELSA Network provider we offer ELSA training and continuing supervision.
What are the Benefits of ELSA Training
The role of ELSA’s is to support children and young people in schools to understand and regulate their own emotions whilst also respecting the feelings of those around them.
Composition of Psytribe’s ELSA Training Course
Our ELSA training course provides six days of online training lead by our HCPC registered educational psychologists on all aspects of emotional literacy. ELSA trainees are provided with an in-depth study of:-
- Emotional Awareness
- Self Esteem
- Managing difficult emotions
- Social and friendship skills
- Social communications difficulties
- Family break-up
You will have the opportunity to develop your ELSA skills and understandings during the course. In addition, trainees are supported through continuous supervision in their practice.
The ELSA Course Delivery Structure
Our ELSA training course is augmented and supported with 6 half-day of supervision for the trainee ELSA’s delivered regularly over the period of the course duration. The attendees will be a group composed of primary or secondary ELSA’s. Delegates attending the course may also receive additional individual support from their supervisor. Support is provided usually by telephone or email contact.
Trainees will have the opportunity to work with young persons in their setting to develop their emotional literacy skills during the course delivery under the supervision of our experienced psychologists.
