This Adverse Childhood Experiences training course teaches staff how to recognise whether a child or young person has experienced adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and how to provide support for them.

In England, over 80% of children in need have experienced at least one ACE. Understanding the long-term impact of ACEs can help staff in the education sector better provide trauma-informed care. Learners will gain an understanding of how to respond to cases of children or young people who have suffered from such experiences in their childhood.
