KCA provides learning and development focused on a core and foundational knowledge base of attachment, trauma and resilience to help promote connected relationships. Working in partnership, we start with an in-depth look at the development needs of an organisation and the way in which training will contribute to practice outcomes. We believe that a ‘whole systems’ approach is fundamental to creating sustained, systemic change and therefore seek to impact on organisational: · culture, through developing shared understanding and knowledge; · practice, through supporting the application of knowledge to practice; · structures, through supporting leaders to consider mechanisms to support

sustainability, such as Champions models and policy development; and · review systems, through ensuring the impact of our input is evaluated. Our co-creation approach ensures that we work with our commissioners to develop learning inputs that meet the needs of their learners and promote social enquiry, experiential learning and skill development through connected learning. We achieve this by creating blended learning journeys that use face to face training, webinars, online web-tutorials, e-learning, online mentoring and associated resources to support learning, facilitate discussion and encourage practice sharing.

How this Supports Schools

Benefits to schools 1. Generating reflective practice and reflective discussion 2. Providing KCA Tools to support reflective practice and reflective discussion 3. Recognising the importance of adult as well as child wellbeing Evidence from external research of impact of KCA training 1. Increased staff wellbeing 2. Increased staff confidence 3.

How this Supports Schools

Our training supports schools to embed policy and practice to become trauma informed and trauma responsive to benefit all members of the school community; children and young people, their families and the staff. Through creating trauma informed environments with a focus on psychological safety, prioritising relational practice and responding to emotional needs with compassion and empathy, the school becomes a powerful social buffer against the impact of trauma and painful life experiences as a universal offer to all members of the school community. Our diploma develops key staff to have the knowledge, confidence and key conversational skills to deliver interventions that support children and young people to heal brains, minds and bodies and make sense of their experiences. Our approach removes the barriers to learning for children and young people and supports schools to address the major challenges facing education improving attendance, engagement and reducing behaviours that challenge and interrupt learning. A mentally healthy culture creates psychological safety for all children and the adults within the school improving staff well being, reducing staff absence and increasing staff retention.
