At Barnardo’s we feel that all The PATHS® Programme for Schools (UK Version) curriculum users deserve a high quality training to effectively implement the curriculum.

Training can be organised on-site at your school or agency, or at a centralised location if more than one school is being trained together. This bespoke training focuses on active learning so that one experiences and practices lessons and skills that will make your implementation both engaging and successful. The PATHS® Programme for Schools (UK Version) implementation is most successful when there is strong principal, administrative and parent support. As a result it is important for principals and other support staff to attend trainings with their staff.

How long is the training?

Workshops usually last 1.5 days and are limited to 30 participants. The training days are usually conducted in a sequence; first there is an introductory day prior to beginning implementation, followed by teacher use of beginning lessons and skills, and then a second day is held roughly a term later.

For specific information on your training needs, contact the UK Master Trainer, Mairead Ewart
