Elevated Minds recognises that, in addition to young people, the need for parental support and support for school staff is also imperative in order to ensure that all young people, our future of tomorrow, are guided and given opportunities to be who they want to be and need to be in order to turn their dreams into a reality. Elevated Minds will support parents by:


  • Offering them an opportunity to attend an level 1 or level 2 course, accredited by NCFE, on ‘Having Challenging Conversations’. This course will include 6 sessions of delivery over a half term; qualifications for level 1 will be issued after the completion of week 6. Level 2 qualifications require further study. Therefore, a commitment to independent study as well as small group work will be required. The course is written by both Akeila and Doreen and is based on many years of experience of working with parents as well as research.


The impact of this course includes improvement with:


  • Confidence

  • Relationships

  • Self-awareness

  • Knowledge regarding their child’s/children’s education

  • The ability to have effective, challenging conversations

  • Emotional intelligence – see things from different perspectives

  • Skills and techniques regarding positive conflict resolution
