This program has been designed specifically to teach educators from each Bayside and Kingston school the theory and application of the Neurosequential Model of Education (NME).

NME is an internationally acclaimed framework designed to teach educators how the young brain is impacted by trauma, and how to work effectively with traumatised students.

Participating schools will progress through a series of 3 face-to-face workshops and 2 follow-up in-house sessions with SFYS Coordinator and NME Trainer, Gabrielle Evans.

Each school will be supported to implement customised strategies that fit the needs of the school and their students.
