Partnering with SAPHNA to provide school professional training

Adult with happy children

Published on: March 25, 2021

Compass Positive Effect in partnership with the School and Public Health Nurses Association, is delighted to launch our new digital health and wellbeing training for schools, school nurses, families and other professionals working with the school aged population.

Although school and public health nurses were already successfully delivering some digital training, COVID 19 has seen the need for this to rapidly expand. As a result, we are delighted to have worked with our long standing partners at Compass to design, develop and deliver high quality training. This digital offer will enable us to reach more children, young people, families and those who have a role in supporting their health and well-being needs efficiently, effectively and safely.

Sharon White OBE, CEO SAPHNA

Our own school nurses have tried and tested this training over many years, and we have now adapted this alongside SAPHNA, so any organisation or professional working with infants, children and young people can benefit.

We are excited to launch this digital training offer by bringing together our specialist expertise in prevalent health & wellbeing issues delivered within the context of the important public health roles played by school nurses and other key partners. Building and enhancing knowledge and approaches in areas that impact family lives will enable more children and young people to gain early help and support when they really need it.
