Active in Mind - Teacher CPD

Active in Mind CPD gives educators the tools to support targeted groups of pupils who are struggling to engage with learning, school life, and their physical and mental health.


This valuable CPD demonstrates the role of physical activity (and the self-help strategies of performance sport) in improving the mental health of young people. It will support educators to:

  • Understand the content of Active in Mind and its role in supporting young people to develop positive mental health strategies
  • Identify opportunities across the whole school curriculum to reinforce the Active in Mind content
  • Support staff well-being with education around the relevance of the Active in Mind strategies for their own mental health.

What’s involved

Active in Mind – Teacher CPD takes the form of a virtual 90 minute training course.

To activate the programme in school, the lead teacher will need to nominate five Young Mental Health Champions who will work with a ‘nurture group’ of 15 pupils.
