The BEST course I have attended. Great delivery and so informative. I found this training very interesting and would love to explore even further.

Sound Sleep is Sleep Scotland’s training day and teaching resource pack for professionals working with school-aged children and teenagers, to raise awareness of the importance of sleep for emotional and physical wellbeing.

What are the objectives of the Sound Sleep training course?

The aims of this training course are as follows:

  • to introduce participants to the physiology of sleep, adolescent sleep and sleep disorders.

  • to explain and demonstrate how to use the Sound Sleep teaching resource pack: aims, objectives and practical examples.
  • to explain how to become a sleep ambassador: planning, implementing and monitoring sleep awareness in schools.

What are the expected outcomes of the Sound Sleep training course?

At the end of the course participants will have the skills and resources to deliver the following:

  • sleep lessons to children and young people.
  • training to other professionals, who work with primary or secondary school pupils, to use the teaching resource pack.
  • sleep awareness talks to parents and professionals.

Course fees

The cost of attending this course is £195 (including VAT). This includes the cost of the teachers’ resource pack. Early bird and group discounts may apply.

Can I commission a local training course?

As with all Sleep Scotland training, Sound Sleep training is available for commission. This is suitable for any team working with groups of mainstream school-aged children or teenagers, who wish to train between 14 and 24 members of staff. This will be the most cost-effective way of training a number of people and we would encourage you to invite other teams in your locality, where appropriate, to share the cost.
