We are delighted to announce that Cumberland School has been acknowledged as one of the first ‘ADHD Advanced Practitioner’ education settings in the UK.

Cumberland’s representative, Charles Cropper, Head of Vocational Centre embarked on the advanced practitioner programme, where he took part in a rigorous programme resulting in him achieving the coveted status.

Colin Foley, National Training Director from the ADHD foundation congratulated the school and will present the Charles with his ADHD Practioner Award at the ADHD Conference on Friday 4th October.

Micheal Webster, Regional Director commented:

I am delighted with the success of Cumberland School achieving the first ADHD Practioner Award. Our work with the ADHD Foundation is recognised through these exciting and developmental opportunities that demonstrate the high level of professional work our staff teams complete in order to support young people in our schools. The work undertaken has allowed  staff teams to expand their knowledge and understanding of the needs of learners with ADHD, reflect upon their current practice and explore and further develop a range of teaching and learning areas.

Congratulations everyone on a fantastic achievement.
