To complete the Level 3 Qualification there are 4 elements:

1.Five days of training – Previously Therapeutic Inclusion Room Training
The Th.Inc.Room® approach uses a combination of educational, therapeutic and nurturing approaches shown to effectively meet the needs of pupils failing to access school fully for emotional reasons. This course trains an individual (teacher or TA) to set up and effectively run a Th.Inc.Room – including one to one and small group work. The course covers theory that explores Mental Health and Wellbeing in children/young people and teaches therapeutic approaches appropriate for use within the school setting. It includes skills exercises, practical activities, peer discussion and opportunities to explore resources.

“The course has been amazing. I have learnt so much that I have already implemented and gained more confidence.” Primary TA
“Brilliant course – very inspiring, hands on practical ways to make a difference.” Secondary Assistant Head

2.Two additional days of training on Transformative Play – Previously ‘Let the Toys Talk’.

This two day training course explains and explores the Transformative Play model. It will take the participants on their own play journey as they discover the three ways in which children/young people can use play and creative activities to develop cognitively, socially and emotionally. The course will equip participants to safely and effectively deliver Transformative Play sessions to individual children/young people. It is an experiential course so come prepared to play!
