be:mindful The Podcasts

Intending to contribute towards career professional development (CPD) and provide academy team members with additional skills and knowledge surrounding children's mental health and emotional wellbeing, our podcasts will be used by the Trust's mental health champions (for children) to support inset training and twilight sessions. They also provide information and insight into how our professional services work together to support our academies. Our series includes conversations with CEOs, principals, diversity and inclusion experts and other leaders in their field on the very current topic of childhood mental health awareness. 

The series consists of 12 episodes, each of which will be launched in line with upcoming awareness initiatives - so stayed tuned! A huge thank you to Caroline Spender, School Improvement's Project Co-ordinator at the Trust for launching our first-ever podcasts, and to all of our guest speakers for taking the time to share their expertise. We hope you enjoy listening.
