Mental health

This paper supports the Opportunity England recommendation, 'a curriculum for all'.

Implementing these recommendations will align with Opportunity England’s vision by strengthening mental health support and strategy in FE. Effective strategy, dedicated investment and resource, and consistent accountability systems will enable colleges to provide effective mental health support, contributing to the wellbeing and success of students and staff. Research and developing pedagogy to underpin whole-college approaches to mental health will ensure a more comprehensive and responsive approach to meet staff and students’ needs. Working in partnership across the education and health eco-systems underpins a holistic strategy that will create a supportive educational experience, essential for fostering a healthy and resilient college community.
