Hi, we're Claire and Rachael.

Together, we are Dragonfly: Impact Education. We champion the belief that emotional wellbeing is just as important as physical health.

Our mission is to help children and young people fulfil their potential. 

We'd like to personally invite you to our 'First Aid for Mental Health - Staff Supporting Learners' course

The full course is available online with an optional call available to introduce you to the training. 


First Aid for Mental Health - Staff Supporting Learners

'First Aid for Mental Health - Staff Supporting Learners' focuses on how staff in schools can best support the mental health and wellbeing of the children in their care. 

We take the best parts of our First Aid course and discuss the issues as they relate specifically to the context of education and how they impact upon learning and achievement. Delivered by experienced teachers with an on-the-ground understanding of the difficulties faced within schools, this will be a day which blends new learning with useful, school-based examples of practice that could be applied within your own context.

 We also have a version of this course designed specifically with ASD children in mind - please let us know if this would be better suited to your context.
