Social, Emotional & Mental Health
The LARGEST cohort of students at Nisai Learning
Our experience covers learners with conditions including Agoraphobia, Depression, Eating Disorders, OCD, Self-Esteem, Self-Harm and Social Anxiety.
As the largest and most rapidly increasing cohort in the Nisai Virtual Academy, learners with Social Emotional and Mental Health issues thrive with the support and accessibility of programmes delivered by Nisai Learning. The use of the Nisai Virtual Academy has seen learners who have historically struggled to access mainstream education, engage and progress both academically and socially. By providing structure to their days, our learners have a sense of purpose, and as a result, we see their self-esteem and self-confidence increase.
The progress on softer skills is measured through the behaviour and contribution within lessons which is scored on an ongoing basis. We can also measure interaction through the various communication mediums used with learners frequently progressing from the private text window to the public text window and then on to the use of the microphone in front of their peers.
Managers and teachers have developed highly individualised programmes to meet the needs of students with complex reasons for finding it difficult to learn in conventional classrooms."
