Staff CPD

Give your staff the confidence and competence to support all your students.

High quality,
engaging CPD

The Mable Academy's CPD library empowers your staff to identify and support mental health and SEND in your school. Each video course is around an hour long, and is broken into 5-8 minute modules, meaning staff can learn at their own pace.

Certified courses on
wellbeing and SEN

All of our courses are certified, meaning CPD points are awarded to staff at the end of each course. They cover a broad range of topics, such as Counselling Skills for Teacher, Creating a Communication Friendly Classroom and the Link Between Behaviour and Communication.

Track your staff’s
CPD engagement

Once your school is registered, your whole staff have access to the Mable Academy. Our software tracks how many courses they've completed, giving you a comprehensive overview of which courses they're accessing, and how much CPD each member of staff has done.
