The National College is the streaming home for high-quality professional development for schools, providing everything schools need to strengthen, manage and evidence their professional development in one place, on one platform.

They respond to the latest changes in education and work closely with their members to deliver the most up-to-date library of webinars and courses for all roles, across all settings, underpinned by robust evidence and expertise.

Joe Stoney, co-founder of The National College, said: “Congratulations to everyone at Orchard Mead Academy on achieving their National Mental Health & Wellbeing Accreditation. By completing our training programme, the school has shown its strong commitment to developing an environment where both children and staff feel supported, valued and can thrive.

“The DfE and Public Health England (PHE) both stress the importance of a whole school approach to mental health in order to secure better outcomes for pupils but this requires engagement and investment from all staff. We’ve armed schools with the knowledge and skills they need to understand their responsibilities and how to react in the best way possible to any problems.”
