World Mental Health Day

Students and staff across all of our centres wore yellow today to show their support for World Mental Health Day, which takes place on Saturday 10th October. Many people are wearing something yellow to raise awareness of the issue and to show their support and solidarity for anyone that may be experiencing hard times at the moment with their mental health.

Having a mental health problem can be an isolating experience for young people, by holding a #HelloYellow day, we hope to show people that whoever you are and whatever you’re going through there is always someone there for you to talk to. Next week, we are also joining the “Tea & Talk” initiative for all staff and students, where they can meet with Regional Leads or Student Ambassadors for a drink and a chat.

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