The HeadStart Kent Programme is making a range of training approaches available to support the children and families workforce in Kent. This is to equip practitioners and staff with the knowledge and skills to be able to promote emotional resilience and respond to young people finding it hard to manage the pressures in their daily lives at the earliest opportunity.

“An 11% boost in results in standardised achievement tests has been linked to school programmes that directly improve students’ social and emotional learning.”
