​Below are a range of training packages your school/setting can access. The aim is to support children and young people's emotional wellbeing and mental health. 

TPP for Essex Schools and Settings

Trauma Perceptive Practice (TPP) is the Essex approach to understanding behaviour and supporting emotional wellbeing. 

For more information, please see the Trauma Perceptive Practice Leaflet

TPP training consists of 9 training Elements, plus Train the Trainer. It starts with the headteacher/manager engaging in the first 2 Elements, before nominating a TPP lead from your leadership team to access the Train the Trainer and then deliver the remaining 7 Elements to your staff, with our support of course. There are 2 options for this: Advanced – approx. 14 hours whole-staff training, or: Intermediate: approx. 5 hours whole-staff training.  

There is a cost of £25 at the point of Train the Trainer to access our online platform which hosts all the training materials and provides access to a county-wide TPP community network.

​TPP for Families

Additional training is available for schools and settings to share the learning of TPP with their families. This training is by invitation only for schools/settings who have delivered all 9 Elements of TPP to their whole staff.

​TPP for Essex Partners

This shorter course is aimed at community-based providers working in Essex who support schools/settings, children/young people and families. It is an opportunity for Essex providers and partners to learn more about TPP and consider how they can adopt and support the values of TPP in their work.
