What Qualifications do you Need?

In order to be able to join the team at Red Umbrella as one of our specialist mental health trainers, you must have a Level 3 Qualification in education and teaching, or equivalent. This is to ensure that you possess the necessary skills and knowledge to effectively deliver training, facilitate learning, and provide high-quality educational experiences to our clients.

In addition to this, you must be registered to deliver mental health training, either through MHFA England, Qualsafe, Nuco or equivalent. This is important as it ensures that you have been vetted and certified by reputable organisations, demonstrating your competence and adherence to recognised standards in mental health training.

You must also have up to date liability insurance - this is crucial to protect both you and our clients in case of any unforeseen incidents or claims that may arise during training sessions. Having liability insurance demonstrates your professionalism and commitment to maintaining a safe and responsible training environment.

Trainers must also be able to drive and hold a full driving license, as some of our locations can be remote and difficult to reach via public transport.

Do You Have Counselling or Therapy Qualifications

We are also particularly keen to hear from any trainers who also have counselling or therapy qualifications! Considering the nature of the job, this would be a really worthwhile qualification, and would certainly add to your expertise, allowing you to deliver fantastic mental health training to our clients.
