What training is on offer for Therapeutic Thinking?

The full training for Therapeutic Thinking is a three-day course that is currently being run virtually. The course runs on three days from 9:30am to 4:30pm. Attendees are required to attend all three full days.

The training is designed for the Head Teacher and other senior leaders, including Inclusion Leads and SENCOs.

The aim is for two people from every school in East Sussex to have attended the full training. Primary Schools are encouraged to send a maximum of two members of staff to the training and Secondary Schools a maximum of three members of staff. They do not have to both attend the same cohort. 

Once they have successfully attended they are considered ‘Tutors’ in Therapeutic Thinking and then have full access to the presentation resources and analysis tools in order to embed the principles within their school setting.

The school is also then provided with ESBAS Adviser time to support the successful strategic implementation of Therapeutic Thinking during the first year. The Tutors will also be invited to join Network meetings across the first year.

‘Tutors’ are expected to attend a Refresher Training session annually.
