What Year groups do you offer training programmes for?

Eikon currently offer Wellbeing Ambassador training for:

Primary – Years 3, 4, 5 & 6

Secondary – Years 7, 8, 9,10,11

6th Form only – Years 12 & 13

A Wellbeing Ambassador promotes wellbeing in school through education, activities, events and whole school communication.

They do not offer 1-2-1 mentoring sessions with pupils.

The training is aimed at potential young leaders who may not yet have found an opportunity to have their voice heard in school, but who could contribute to promoting and supporting wellbeing within their school community with the right help. It’s essential that pupils are keen to attend the training and play a part in the plans that are developed on the day.

We recommend a minimum of 12 pupils and a maximum of 25.

Staff should invite pupils who show interest in supporting and promoting wellbeing at school. It is often beneficial to have a mix of year groups, so that pupils can hear about the different experiences of others in their school. Eikon does not recommend that whole year groups or whole classes are trained – think of your Ambassadors as a smaller team of diverse and inclusive representatives.
