January 2013

I am really keen to investigate the way in which learners are coping after the Christmas break. Often after Christmas there is a natural low , getting back into the swing of learning, maybe exams or assessments and would be interested to find out how learning services like counselling and support are asked to address this in terms of their time planning? It might also be useful to see which type of counselling the learners might use, PCT, CBT or psychodynamic? Has anyone any experience in looking at this? 

Re NUS

Making some new network links with NUS, looking at the way in which curriculum is being developed involving learners. It is interesting to look at the way learner feedback affects the way in which the courses are being developed, especially in relation to the learners who struggle with interpreting feedback, where they have low self esteem or perhaps do not have the technical language to understand what is meant, and how this impacts on their decision to remain on the programme, let alone their success. Watch this space.

Time to Change video: Stand Up Kid

In 2012, Time to Change piloted a special campaign for young people in the West Midlands area, starting with the release of Stand Up Kid, an online film that aims to change attitudes towards mental illness amongst 14-18 year olds.

The film shows teenager Michael coming back to school after being off with depression. Teased by his classmates, he takes a stand against the jokes and tells them what it really means to live with a mental health problem.
