Place2Be’s Mental Health Champions – Foundation programme wins at the 2022 Learning Technologies Awards
The award was given as a result of the impact that we were able to deliver for the Mental Health Champions - Foundation programme - our first online learning programme for teachers and school staff.
Launched in August 2020, the programme has reached 48.95% of schools in the UK across every county in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, and over 66,000 school staff.
Using Hive Learning’s group-based and nudge-driven peer learning platform, we have been able to support teachers to better foster a positive approach to mental health. This has resulted in over 93% of participants feeling their capacity to lead a positive approach to mental health and wellbeing in schools had increased.
The approach has since been used for more Place2Be programmes, including our Senior Mental Health Leads training and training programme for parents and carers in Place2Be partner schools.
Thank you so much to our funders Morgan Stanley, Law Family Charitable Foundation and the Wimbledon Foundation for their support, to Hive Learning, and of course to all of the teachers and school staff who have taken part in the programme so far.
