Nomination for a Natspec Award

We are pleased to have been nominated for a Natspec Award in Wellbeing and Mental Health. The Natspec Awards aim to recognise and celebrate excellent practice in the specialist further education sector. The goal is to promote innovation, continuous improvement and raise standards across the sector.

Our nomination in Wellbeing and Mental Health was for becoming a Trauma Informed Provision.This has been a whole college project, which aims to support the psychological and emotional wellbeing of our students and staff. The aim is to become a mentally healthy place for all our students and staff.

Our students have been involved in the design and implementation of this initiative. Across our regions we have mental health first aiders, student ambassadors and unions to ensure the voices of students are captured and our young people are empowered.

Over the last academic year, we have increased the number of trained mental health first aiders available across the college. We now have around 40 members of staff trained across regions. We are also starting the process of training students through the use of an accessible programme.

The winners will be announced in an awards ceremony at Natspec’s National Conference on Wednesday 22 June.

As a result of outstanding teaching, over time students make excellent progress and develop the knowledge and skills they need to achieve their goals.
