Mental Health in the Workplace Instructor Level 3 (VTQ)
CPD Certified Training Approved by Skills for Care

This course is designed to teach ProTrainings instructors on how to deliver the ProTrainings Mental Health in the Workplace Course. The course is delivered over two consecutive days and there is pre-study which must be completed before attending the classroom training.

There is a high demand for this type of training in the workplace. The topics covered include understanding mental health, how to recognise mental ill health problems and supporting an employee with mental health-related problems.

ProTrainings are one of the few Skills for Care centres of Excellence where we passed stringent checks to prove our commitment to high-quality training and compliance. We are also able to offer Skills for Care Endorsed qualifications for our classroom and video online training courses ensuring you have an acceptable certificate to prove your compliance.  This means that our training meets the high standards expected by Skills for Care.

This ProTrainings Qualification is also endorsed by TQUK, who are an Awarding Organisation regulated by Ofqual. This gives an extra level of appreciation on this ProTrainings qualification. You can buy an endorsed certificate if you need one, once you pass the course. You do not have to buy this extra certificate and the course is the same whichever option you choose.
