Aylssa has been training staff who work directly with young people for over 15 years both in the UK and internationally. She has trained school staff from Brunei, China, Kazakhstan, South Korea, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam & The Marshall Islands.
As a consultant trainer in the UK, she developed and delivered bespoke training for:
Personal, Social & Health Education Training
Teaching Relationships & Sex Education: Getting it Right
In this two-day course teachers will discover how to facilitate inclusive RSE with diverse student populations and how to master all those ‘difficult’ questions. Topics covered include language, sexuality, gender, consent, sexual assault, navigating cultural differences, contraception & STIs.
Drugs & Alcohol Awareness
In this half day course teachers will understand what different drugs look like, their effects and signs that someone is under the influence. Suitable for all teaching staff but particularly useful for Boarding House Parents & Tutors.
Love Bomb: Understanding and Addressing Teenage Relationship Violence
Recent studies suggest that up to one-third of teenagers are subjected to abuse within their early relationships. This course covers physical, emotional, sexual and digital abuse and how schools can respond both in a preventative and reactive manner.
These can be delivered to teams of 10 online, or up to 16 in person.
Level 2 First Aid for Youth Mental Health
This one-day course is suitable for teachers and other staff members such as Boarding House Parents, as well as students over the age of 14. It gives an overview of mental health issues faced by young people and how people can apply the First Aid Action Plan to help.
Level 3 Supervising First Aid for Mental Health
This two-day course is most suited for Mental Health Leads, Designated Safeguarding Leads and anyone who is responsible for the overall welfare of staff and/or students in the school. In addition to increasing your knowledge of mental health conditions and how to help, you will also understand the impact of stress and how to foster a positive mental health culture in the workplace.
Level 3 Safeguarding Children & Vulnerable Adults
This one-day course teaches you the signs and symptoms of abuse and what to do if you think someone is being hurt. Please note this is a UK accredited course so some content may not be relevant for an international audience. A bespoke training session may be more suited to your needs – please get in touch.
Aylssa can also work directly with your students around the topics above. Get in touch for more information.
I highly recommend Aylssa Cowell to train staff. She trained me in SRE when we worked together at Jerudong International School in Brunei. It was one of the most meaningful PD I’ve ever had, almost akin to teambuilding. It also taught me how to both be sensitive to cultural differences among international students without being condescending or assuming what students know or don’t know.
