Due to Government Funding in the Adult Education Budget, we have access to several FREE online Level 2 CACHE/TQUK/NCFE Accredited Courses available to help understand some key issues around young people's mental health and wellbeing. 

With over 30 courses to choose from, you can access accredited training on:

  • Understanding Autism (learn how individuals process sensory information, understand characteristics, understand conditions, learn how speech, language and communication differ in people with Autism)
  • Understanding Children and Young Peoples Mental Health (Understand factors which may affect Young Peoples mental health, the impact that they have and how to support them with these issues)

 The qualifications are completed within an 10-week period; the duration is completely dependent on each learner's ability as to how fast they complete and how many hours it takes. There are no exams, essays or end-point assessments however these are NOT 'short courses' as they are equivalent to a GCSE Grade C. You may do as many as you like, just one at a time.  The only criteria the learner must meet to be eligible, is the following:

  • Aged 19 or over on or before 31st August 2021    
  • Have lived in the UK/EU for 3+ years    
  • Not already on a Government funded course (Apprenticeship for example)
