Professional Development Training for Teaching Staff

Give your staff the confidence and support to work with all students

The Mable Academy

With more pressure on your staff to identify children who require support from additional services, it isn’t easy to know where to turn for the best advice.

The Mable Academy helps your staff develop the technical and clinical skills they need to make the best decisions for your pupils. Each Mable Academy course is around 60 minutes long and is split up into 5-8 minute lessons so your staff can learn at their own pace. 

The Mable Academy will help your staff feel more confident in identifying mental health and special educational needs, working with the children who have them, and moving the conversation forward to get them the correct support.
