Have you accessed the DfE Senior Mental Health Lead Training Grant yet?

The Department for Education (DfE) is offering a grant of £1,200 for eligible state-funded schools and colleges in England to train a senior mental health lead to develop and implement a whole school or college approach to mental health and wellbeing. This training is not compulsory, but it is part of the government’s commitment to offer this training to all eligible schools and colleges by 2025.

Eligible settings can apply for a senior mental health lead training grant to commence training by 31 July 2024.

Second grants can be claimed by eligible schools and colleges if the Senior Mental Health Lead they previously trained left their setting and are no longer able to embed a whole school or college approach to mental health and wellbeing.

Grants will be provided to cover (or contribute to) the cost of attending a quality assured course, and may also be used to hire supply staff while leads are engaged in learning. Find out more and apply for your grant HERE.
