Schools interested in improving attendance and attainment will benefit from having a Sleep Champion in their team.

During adolescence biological changes take place making it harder for youngsters to fall to sleep at night and this can lead many young people into crisis. Sleep Champions are trained to provide information to young people so that they can understand how to address these difficulties.

Sleep Champion is a course designed for professionals working in Secondary Schools.

Course is delivered via Sleep Charity e-learning module, followed by a 90 minute live session via zoom. You must complete all the online modules within 30 days.

Dates of 90 minute live session following e-learning.

It is our role as professionals to help young people to move into adulthood with opportunities to participate in our local community while maintaining their health and wellbeing, and with opportunities that suit them.

It is important that all professionals understand the whole network of services that are meaningful to parents and carers and children and young people throughout this time. From education and employment, to money, social care, and transport, there’s a lot to consider.

That’s is why we are holding a series of question and answer sessions for professionals that bring together education settings and services.

Watch the Q&A with an overview of the preparing for adulthood protocol and pathways, and speakers from Linkage College and Focus (adult social care).

Parents and carers and children and young people should know about the Preparing for Adult page. NELC SEND Local Offer | Preparing for adulthood and transition to adult life (
