In It Together - A Social Emotional Mental Health Competency Framework for Staff Working in Education (Version 2)


These frameworks have been designed to support the national ambition to dramatically improve children and young people’s social emotional mental health by 2020.  We want children to get the best out of their years in education and achieve their academic potential, growing into emotionally strong and resilient adults. Implementation of Future in Mind is at the forefront of what the Children and Young People’s Clinical Network seek to support. Young people told us that they would like to know, and have the confidence, that staff in their setting are properly trained in emotional wellbeing and mental health. 

The framework has separate competencies for those working in early years, primary schools, secondary schools and colleges, with clear enhancements included where necessary for special schools. Each framework has detailed instructions on: How to use the Framework.
