Twilight Training or Half Day In-Service Day Training

Designed to help schools to understand bereavement, grief and mourning in children and young people who have experienced the death and dying of a significant person in their lives.

This introductory bereavement course for schools is typically delivered from 4pm to 6pm but can be delivered during the working day if preferred. 

Aims of the session:

  • To develop an awareness of the grief models on death and subsequent grief journey across childhood
  • To develop an awareness of language in supporting bereaved pupils
  • To develop an awareness of the types of support schools and education environments can offer pupils affected by loss and bereavement within the context of school and community
  • Consider the potential impact of death in a school setting – on pupils’ grief, and on peers, staff and the school community.

Feedback about this course:

“I have had no training in bereavement until now and I have been teaching for 10 years. I have dealt with many children who have been bereaved and there was a challenge to find materials/support for children. This course was really helpful and has helped develop my confidence in dealing with young children and their loss.”

Primary school teacher

“This course should be a mandatory course for all ITE programmes, before probationer teachers enter the classroom; particularly given the significance of statistics. I will be ensuring my staff cover this content and use online resources as it is circumstances each of us will face at some time with our young people.”
