Available to book now at £150 per attendee, learners can also take advantage of Elite Project Services BOGOF promotion where they buy one, and the company gifts them one extra space for free!

Martin Dunne, CEO & Founder of Elite Project Services, says “We want to play an important role in improving mental health in the workplace and our new training courses are designed to reach as many people as possible, whether online or in-person, so that we can make a lasting impression throughout our sector. The industry we serve is known for demanding long hours, hard physical graft, high levels of pressure, and time away from home which is why we want to create a culture of openness to reduce stigma, increase confidence and provide individuals and businesses with the right skills to support those experiencing challenges with mental health.”

The range of topics that will be addressed include the identification of mental health conditions, how to start a supportive conversation and signpost the individual towards professional help, through to understanding the effects of drug and alcohol, how to apply the ‘First Aid for Mental Health Action Plan’ and support a positive mental health culture within the workplace.

Martin adds, “As both the rail and construction industry are moving with the times to recruit from an increasingly diverse talent pool and build multi-skilled teams, we need to ensure that employee wellbeing is taken seriously from entry level to the most experienced grades. This is why improving mental health in the workplace is key to reducing stress, increasing wellbeing and resilience, and enhancing performance. Our training centre was established in 2022, to further support our customers with upskilling their existing staff and individuals who are long term unemployed, may have a criminal conviction or simply find it difficult to gain access to skilled trades.”
