Mental Health UK brings together four national mental health charities working across the UK; Rethink Mental Illness in England, Support in Mind Scotland, MindWise in Northern Ireland and Hafal in Wales. We have 40 years' experience of working to improve life for people affected by mental illness in the UK.

In September 2019 we will pilot our Young People’s Programme, Bloom, which focuses on building resilience of 14-18 year olds, through transitions in their lives. Bloom works inside education settings where it trains designated teachers on the content, and then co-delivers the programme with them.

Following our in-house training delivered over 2 days; you will as a Bloom Training Associate, be responsible for coordinating implementation of the programme into education settings from September 2019. Prior to starting the programme, you will train designated teachers on the content of the programme and then co-deliver Bloom with them over a 6 week period. Through this training and co-delivery you will mentor and support the designated teachers, enabling them to deliver Bloom on their own. You will continue to provide support to these teachers by keeping in regular contact, and returning for regular reviews. Once the Bloom programme has been delivered inside a school or college, you will move onto the next one to continue the process.

You will also work closely with the Bloom Manager to identify and engage with a host of new education institutions to take part in the next phase of implementation. You will work autonomously, and ensure you are the first point of contact with anything related to the delivery of Bloom inside the education setting you are responsible for.
