The I Matter Training Journey
Strong Foundations for Your Own Key Role - Building Confidence for Challenging Times
TAKE THE I MATTER CHALLENGE IN 2021
COMPLETE THE STEPS, LEARN IMPORTANT IDEAS, AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE
FOCUS FIRST ON JUST ONE RELATIONSHIP - AND WATCH WHAT HAPPENS
Professionals - Parents - Young People - Adults - Senior Leaders.
Training in the I Matter Framework is for senior leaders, for professionals, for parents and for young people.
It is for anyone who lives or works with children and adults who are anxious or challenging. It is also helpful for anyone who has an issue that they are struggling with and want to make progress on. The I Matter Challenge is the vehicle that supports you in making a commitment to using your I Matter Journey to making a difference.
I Matter Training can support
1. An Everyday I Matter Awareness Programme - for those supporting children with typical needs and wanting information to support prevention
2. A specialist supported Learning Programme - for those supporting children with Raised Concerns or Longer Term Needs supported by our specialist assessment and recommendations process
We also run A Certification Programme - Stage 1 and Stage 2 - for those interested in deepening their skills and supporting others.

WHY DID DR CATHY BETOIN CREATE THIS COURSE?
“ I created this course based on thirty years' experience of practice as a teacher and clinical psychologist with children and adults in schools and in clinical settings where I saw a great deal of confusion about what to do and why to help children who are struggling or challenging. The pillars of the I Matter Framework help you build strong foundations that you can apply intentionally and use systematically to make a difference when helping children in home, school or community settings. The concepts are easy to use and powerful. ”
WHAT DO PROFESSIONALS AND PARENTS SAY?
'Children's well-being is important to us. We knew what we wanted -but not how to get there. The I Matter Training Journey is helping our schools pull various disparate initiatives into an organised approach putting adult-child relationship health and children's development at the heart of our school development planning
Huw Davies and Pete Barfoot - Kendal Headteachers
This approach rebuilds the hope and confidence of professionals and parents by providing a language and concepts that we can all work together with that ties elements together. It just makes complete sense
Dr Amy Lee: GP Safeguarding Lead - Kendal Integrated Care Community

I am a Higher Level Teaching Assistant, but also a parent and foster carer. I work with primary aged children, have 3 teenagers, and foster toddlers! This course has been so valuable for each and every relationship I encounter on a daily basis.
