What does Level 3 Training involve?

The Level 3 Train the Trainer is split into 2 stages

Stage 1 – CK foundation trainer  

This will involve an online live training day (due to current lockdown) with prep work, online classroom support and assessment which will teach you how to teach other adults the foundation level of the Connected Kids course.

This stage of training will give in-depth skills and advanced information to help you professionally deliver the beginners level of the Connected Kids programme.

“Just to say what a great course day you put together and delivered on Saturday. It was so enjoyable and very deep on a personal level!”

“I went back to a school where I had worked in the summer to repeat an introduction to mindfulness and meditation as they had some new staff. It was only two hours and I would have previously gone in with wanting to fill it full of exciting activities as the time was so little and feel bound that they went away with ‘stuff’ but instead I spent an hour and a half working from the heart and guiding them through meditations, body and breath and they even had a little go at guiding each other in pairs just to notice and focus on sounds etc it was wonderful and I felt that they gained so much more than just having activities to do.” JB
