As a school we are delighted when young people volunteer to help others. Sixteen Wilnecote students have volunteered to become Peer Wellbeing Champions and have now started training with Prohealth UK. This involves working on various modules alongside Councillors working for Prohealth UK and doing a set amount of voluntary hours. Students will get to know lots about wellbeing, emotional health and an awareness of how our mental health affects our daily life.
Students are required to complete three units, the final unit is a demonstration of practical skills. Some of our students have now completed and passed Unit one and are well on the way to gaining their qualification: NCFE Level 2 Award Peer Mentoring.
Students from The Wilnecote School are not the only people working on this project; students from across Tamworth and Lichfield are also taking part and there is a website called Well4u that has been set up for the programme.
