Relationships, Sex and Health Education Curriculum Resources
The Root Of It acted as Subject Matter Experts in the development of resources for teachers on the Changing Adolescent Body; Drugs, Alcohol and Tobacco; Online Relationships; and Caring Friendships. Richard Daniel Curtis was one of only 3 experts to contribute to the Mental Wellbeing content.
Mentoring and Coaching in the Pandemic
Working with the Council's HR department and accessing European Social Funding, The Root Of It delivered courses on topics relating to leadership, mental health and staff support during the pandemic. We also provided content on mentoring and coaching equaling level 3 qualifications.
The Root Of It worked with the Head of Early Careers to roll out mentor training to the apprenticeship team across the Science and Technology Facilities Council. The entire team, across all sites accessed a blended online and in-person curriculum that covered topics like emotional intelligence, mental health, diversity, individual and group mentoring.
Utilising European Social Funding we worked with over 20 nurseries and preschools in the county of Berkshire to train qualified Preschool Mentors on how to recognise, assess and address the early social and emotional difficulties. We also provided courses on personal resilience and mental health during the pandemic, and how children may be affected.
