A range of Mental Health Awareness Courses

mental health

Never has there been a time where mental health has been at the forefront of the news and conversations.

“One in four people in the UK will have a mental health problem at some point. While mental health problems are common, most are mild, tend to be short-term and are normally successfully treated, with medication, by a GP.”

With the rise of recognition of the importance of safety of your employees mental health as well as psychical health socially responsible organisations are putting in place training, procedures and processes to ensure that their people are given the right support.

The benefits are both moral and profitable.

The ‘Thriving at Work’ report that was published in October 2017 highlighted:

There is a large annual cost to employers of between £33 billion and £42 billion (with over half of the cost coming from presenteeism – when individuals are less productive due to poor mental health in work) with additional costs from sickness absence and staff turnover.

To  help achieve a more supportive workplace one of the key measures the report recommends is to develop mental health awareness among employees and to routinely monitor employee mental health and wellbeing.

In order for organisations work towards this, we are providing three courses with various levels of intensity and objectives.

All three of our courses have the option to attend in person or to attend as a live stream and are accredited by FAIB.

This is a half day course ideal for all employees to attend. The more employees that attend this course the better for your organisation. This provides a general awareness around mental health.

Emma Leese’s knowledge on training around the Northeast is proven to be second to none, she is my first point of call when looking for training I have no clue about and can always point me in the right direction. We have been working alongside Emma for many years now and nothing is ever too much, and she is always there for any advice required. The courses the lads have attended with simply learning have been outstanding and they always have plenty of praise to give at the end. Well done and keep up the great work as one of the best training providers in the Northeast!

Emma and the Simply Learning team have been a great support to Green Spark Utility Services and our Health and Safety training needs over the years and myself and the GSU team cannot recommend enough! Some may say proof is in the pudding, so try that pudding for a stress-free training experience you and your business will not regret

I recently attended an Asbestos Awareness course ran by Phil  and I must say it exceeded my expectations.  I learned a great deal about ACM's, its history, and how to manage it etc.  Having been in the USA for 8 years it was great to come back and see huge progress in this area.  I will be recommending this course delivery to all of my team.

Staff always try to go the extra mile to assist with any late or urgent training requests that we might have. I have always received great feedback and assistance from staff while trying to arrange any courses. Thank you!

Engineering Organisation

I have dealt with the company for many years during which time they have provided us with an excellent service in the areas of Health and Safety and Plant Training. The trainers are well qualified, the centre is accredited and they offer guidance and support before and after the training event. Being familiar with our work and our premises and having built up a partnership over time, the company are the perfect training provider for us. Their training expertise is well documented and reliable. I can confidently recommend as a solid and reliable supplier, and experts in their field.

A&P Tyne Limited

Everything from my initial enquiry to the booking has been dealt with professionally and every member of the team I have spoken with has been very friendly and have gone over and above to meet my training needs.

Claire and all her team, in particular Maria, made our annual training event a success. Delivering 15 different courses , over 2 weeks for 21 staff is a huge task. No request was too difficult and all our training aims and objectives for this year were met. The feedback from our staff has been all positive. This has been the fourth successful year of training and we intend to carry on using their services in the future. Many thanks for making the very complicated training programme a success.

Rosh Engineering Ltd

We have been using the company for over 5 years now.; initially they delivered Over Head Crane Training and Abrasive Wheels. We found their office staff very knowledgeable and helpful when deciding which training courses would best suit our needs and requirements. They are always able to deliver on-site training and often at short notice. Their trainers are very competent in their field and this is reflected in the standard of output by the workforce. Since then we have arranged numerous other training courses including Train the Trainer which has been valuable to our business needs. I would have no hesitation when recommending them to an organisation looking for a solid, all round training provider.
