This is an upgrade to our online CHP Academy.
In addition to access to the CHP Academy, you will also receive:
- An in-person training day
- A course of webinars forming an online learning programme
- 1:1 support calls, any time of the year
- Impact measurement with a Case Study
To support your programme, we’ll work through a Subject Leader toolkit with you, hold online masterclasses and group support calls with other Health Ambassadors, run a forum for networking and help you to apply for our Health Conscious Teacher Award.
This course is available to any subject leader of PE, PSHE, Science, DT or Healthy Schools. You may be a newly appointed Subject Leader looking for support and ideas, or an experienced leader looking to form a robust approach to your Health and Wellbeing Curriculum. We cater for all, and can ensure you will learn new knowledge and skills on the Programme.
The programme usually looks like this:
- Sign up for Health Ambassador training
Receive an email detailing the dates of the webinar programme (all webinars are recorded, so if you can’t watch live, we will send you the recording). Usually, there are three webinars – one before the in person training day, and two thereafter.
- Watch webinar 1 (Introduction to The Children’s Health Project and the Health Ambassador Programme)
- Attend the in-person training day
- Watch webinar 2 (Getting started in school – addressing needs and planning implementation)
- Watch webinar 3 (Planning for the year ahead)
We will then send you a link to book your first 1:1 call in with us, where we discuss your plan moving forward, any issues you’re coming across in school, and how to move forward. We will also guide you if you’d like to include your role as a Health Ambassador on your Performance Management.
- First 1:1 call with Ilse or James
- Engage in the CHP Academy online at your own pace – keep in touch via the Health Ambassador forum, attend our meet-ups,
- Further 1:1 calls if needed or desired
- After one year with the Project, we encourage you to fill in an Impact Case Study. We will have prepared for this at the training, so you know which data to collect. It’s not time consuming, or too challenging, but it shows value for money, and makes a great report to include on your Performance Management, share with Governors, Ofsted and parents.
- For sustainability, and if you’d like to continue being supported in this way, you can sign up to our further programmes, where we support you in a similar way (see below). We send you details about this as your first year evolves.
Year A for Subject Leaders – Health Ambassador Programme
Year B for Subject Leaders – Health Leader Programme
Year C for Subject Leaders – Health Mentor Programme
Our training day is fun yet challenging – only passionate teachers need apply! The day is healthy in itself, as we like to take care of our Health Ambassadors, and help them to feel like the role models they are. Here are some of the comments from our recent Health Ambassador programmes:
“The training was brilliant and I would definitely recommend others to go on this course. Ilse was very enthusiastic and passionate about this Project which made me personally feel that it can be a success and the positive effects it could have for all children was inspiring. I love that health and wellbeing is captured as a whole rather than only the highly advertised ‘exercise and eating well’ and feel this course will allow our school to give a greater focus on the mindset and lifestyle aspects to strive towards having healthy children in body and mind, setting them up as best we can for the future.”
Nicole Cooper, Kessingland Primary
“I found the learning amazing. Ilse is fantastic and so inspirational and passionate. We will definitely be rolling this out on a 2/3 year plan and I hope to change the philosophy of our children with this exceptional tool.”
Alison Hudson, Reepham Primary School
“This has been the best training course I have been on in the whole 6 years of teaching. I left feeling very enthusiastic and equipped to share the knowledge I gained.”
Lydia Reed, Lionwood Junior School
“The training was fantastic. I learnt so much about myself as well as us as a school, and how we can have an impact on children’s health. The training was practical and realistic with children’s health always at the heart. I have gained so much valuable knowledge and feel even more excited to have the Project running in my school.”
Suzan Shepperson, Barnham Primary School
“I would definitely recommend this to other schools. I came away feeling very enthused and can’t wait to share with school, build the vision and then implement it in school building a better future for our children.”
Louise Colledge, Parkwood Academy
The quality of training was excellent, I would highly recommend this training to other schools. Ilse was fantastic at explaining the elements of the Health Project and how the scheme of work will nurture the health of the children and staff in our schools. I feel totally supported by Ilse and the rest of the Health Ambassadors and feel very enthusiastic and excited to introduce this to the rest of the staff and children at school.”
Frances Fuller, Fairfield Infant School
