Safeguarding and suicide: A briefing paper for the Further Education and Skills sector

Having a member of staff or learner take their own life is a traumatic experience for peers to have to deal with.

Recipe for Success - Advanced Techniques

This extract from the Recipe for Success e-resource contains our initial analysis and conclusions based what we learned by working with the group of FE colleges who contributed to the resource.

Continuing the recipes analogy we had used to review and present different colleges ideas and provision,  we explored key ingredients (or components) that appeared to be shared across all of the colleges and then examined some of the issues that providers are currently facing.

Recipe for Success: The e-resource

When the team at Hackney Community College won the Association of Colleges Beacon Award (2010) for Widening Participation for its work  with students with mental health problems they decided to share their award with the sector by  commissioning a guide to effective practice.

'Recipe for Success' is the result. It is a collection of 'recipes' gathered together from 6  general further education (FE) colleges with established  provision to support  students (and staff) in FE  who have experience of mental health problems.
