The National Educational Psychological Service (NEPS), in partnership with the Kildare Education Centre, is offering facilitator training in the FRIENDS for LIFE programme. This evidence based anxiety prevention and resilience building programme is designed for use in schools. NEPS promotes delivery of this programme on a whole class basis. Attendance at the training workshop certifies teachers to deliver this evidence based intervention in their schools.
The FRIENDS for LIFE programme is designed to be co-delivered by two trained teachers, on a weekly basis, over 10 weeks, as part of the social, personal and health education (SPHE) curriculum.
The two day training course will be facilitated by NEPS Psychologists in the Kildare Education Centre. There will be two courses, this one and an alternative on: Tuesday 14th April 2015 & Wednesday 22nd April 2015 (please click here for details & to book onto this alternative course).
Please note there is no substitution cover for teachers for these two days. Full attendance at the two days from 9:00 to 3.30 pm is mandatory for certification purposes.
Places on each course are limited and will be allocated on a first come basis. There will be a maximum of 30 participants accepted per course.
The two teachers who attend for training should be in a position to co-deliver the programme in their schools. The cost per teacher is €50 on the basis of two teachers attending (in the event that only one teacher from a school attends, the cost is €55). This fee includes the cost of programme materials and lunch each day. Payment can be paid online (PayPal/Credit Card) or by cheque/postal order by Friday 6th March 2015. Please make cheques payable to the Kildare Education Centre.
