Level 4 Qualification in Supporting Pupils' Wellbeing Through Physical Education
Sutton SSP are one of about 50 Professional Learning Centres in the country who are accredited to deliver these qualifications.
Want to become a specialist in supporting the emotional and social wellbeing of your pupils?
The World Health Organisation , Public Health England and the Sport and Recreation Alliance, amongst others, all clearly believe, through evidence-based research, that emotional stress and the inability to develop helpful coping strategies to overcome this stress makes us more vulnerable to physical illness, affecting our immune system. Physical and Mental health are inextricably linked. PLUS education and health are inseparable. The Association for Physical Education (afPE) and Sports Leaders (SLQ) strongly believe that those teaching physical education are key to supporting the emotional wellbeing of all pupils through the curriculum, especially at such a critical time coming out of a global pandemic where wellbeing is top of the agenda. Hence the development of this qualification!

Brick by Brick Training
Formerly known as LEGO®-based therapy, the programme brings young people together to make friends and develop skills over a shared interest in LEGO® play.
Run by trained practitioners, sessions enable members to build LEGO® models together as a team, developing collaboration, communication, problem-solving, turn-taking, conflict resolution and friendship – all through playing and having fun building LEGO® models. Sessions are known as Brick Club by their members.
Brick Clubs take a child-led approach which means they can be extremely flexible and tailored to the person’s strengths, interests and needs. They include team-based activities where you work together to build a LEGO® model, taking turns to play different roles (called the Engineer, Supplier and Builder) until the model is built. Brick Club members play a leading role in the activities that happen in the session, deciding on who does which job, what model is made and when to take turns. Another option is freestyle building, where pairs or small teams can design and create their own models together. For more advanced LEGO® builders, there’s also the opportunity to create stop-motion animations and work on coding and programming LEGO® activities.
