Research shows that sleep patterns alter during puberty meaning youngsters often don’t fall asleep until much later at night. This can result in difficulties waking in the morning and sleep deprivation impacting on their education.

This course outlines the reasons for the sleep issues, practical strategies to support youngsters to improve their sleep and useful resources to start conversations with young people, information that can be shared with them and parents/carers and a downloadable assembly presentation.

Schools interested in improving attendance and attainment will benefit from having a Sleep Champion amongst their team.

You may find our module ‘Supporting Children and Young People with SEND and Sleep Issues’ a useful addition after you have completed this course.

Furthermore, on completion of this course, you are eligible to join our Children’s Sleep Professional Membership scheme. More details can be found here
