Emotional Literacy Support Assistants (ELSA) Certificate Course 6 Days

Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA) Certificate 2018 • ELSA Line manager training session • 6 days training for ELSAs • 2 supervision sessions for ELSAs

Outline

The ELSA project is an initiative designed to build the capacity of schools to support the social emotional and mental health needs of their pupils from within their own resources. It recognises that children learn better and are happier in school if their emotional needs are also addressed. Children may, for example, need support in recognising and managing their emotions, raising their self-esteem, resilience or improving peer relationships. They may also need help in recovering from significant loss or bereavement and developing ways to resolve conflict effectively.

ELSAs are learning/ teaching support assistants who have received additional training on aspects of emotional literacy. Having an ELSA means having an in-school resource to support the social, emotional and mental health of children in your school.

Description

This course provides a Certificate of attendance which is needed for registration. It does not provide registration in itself. Trainee ELSAs can only become registered ELSAs (and use the ELSA title) by continuing regular supervision/CPD- once every half term with an Educational Psychologist.

There are clear benefits of registration which include:
  • Access to the ELSA Network online support community
  • Access to ELSA resources.
  • Sharing ideas and problem solving with other Lambeth ELSAs
  • Regular CPD and supervision- ensuring that approaches continue to be relevant and evidence based

An ELSA register is kept at the local authority of qualified ELSAs. ELSA support is considered an evidence-based intervention for social, emotional and mental health needs and can be included in SEN support plans.
