With COVID-19 social distancing and partial school closure, we understand that teachers are facing more complex challenges than ever before, including adjusting to smaller class sizes and/or delivering the national curricula online.

Here at OLT, we have noted a significant rise in enquiries about how we can support the efforts of school/college leaders, which is why we’ve responded to these enquiries with a unique and valuable opportunity for teaching professionals.

With mental health for all now more essential than ever before, we are now happy to announce our final webinar in the series is now available to book  'Mental Health Designated Lead in Schools' on 8th June at 4pm.
