Supporting professionals working with children


Life Chance provides expert training via online and face-to-face courses and supervision for a range of professionals and organisations working directly with children.


We have delivered training to staff at hundreds of schools across Devon, as well as specific training and supervision to Higher Education teams at UWE, Plymouth University and Exeter University.


Delivered by our in-house Multi-Disciplinary Team of specialists, our courses help develop and refine the skills needed to support children with social, emotional, and mental health difficulties that are rooted in trauma.

We deliver training for:

  • Pastoral staff
  • Teachers
  • Teaching Assistants
  • Multi-Agency staff
  • Designated Safeguarding Leads
  • Early Years Practitioners
  • Headteachers/Principals
  • Leaders/Managers
  • THRIVE Practitioners

Courses cover practical examples, giving insights and techniques from professionals working on the front line of trauma recovery within our own schools.
