Course Description:

Sleep Awareness equips professionals to be able to offer support to children with sleep hygiene issues, while referring more complex cases to a fully trained Sleep Counsellor. The training is structured specifically to meet the needs of professionals working with typically developing children in the health and social care field and is not suitable for private practitioners.

“It was interesting information and I feel I have learned about different sleep patterns/problems. I can understand more about how they occur and hopefully be more confident when giving support to parents.”Sleep Scotland training course member


Sleep Awareness training is for professionals who work with typically developing children, aged 18 months to 18 years, particularly those working 1:1 with children and families to conduct sleep assessments and implement sleep plans.

This course is designed for professionals working with vulnerable groups, where completion of such training is mandatory for their role. If the professional was working on sleep improvement with their service user and had any reasons to raise protection/safeguarding concerns they should have appropriate knowledge on how to do so in their working environment. We ask you to confirm your training on protection/safeguarding is current, we will not ask to see your certificate. Online self-led training, as well as face-to-face training, are both suitable and will be accepted.

Delegates on our Sleep Awareness training will have their resources emailed to them after the course.

All of our professional open courses are delivered online. Our chosen training platform is Zoom. We provide guidance on how to access Zoom. You do not require a Zoom licence or app to access the training. You will require a strong Internet connection and an up-to-date browser such as Google Chrome/Safari/Firefox.

  •  In the instance that a group course is desired, we can deliver the course either online or face-to-face in your area. Please contact us to arrange this:
