Last Thursday (10th October 2019) Havering Education Services (HES) were announced as SILVER AWARD winners at the UK Customer Experience Awards 2019 (CXA) in the Product or Service Development category.
CXA is a national awards programme that recognises organisations and individuals who strive to enhance their customer experience through innovative means. The awards celebrated its tenth anniversary this yesterday and spans across industries with large organisations such as Aldi, Sky, O2, and DHL all being shortlisted for the awards.
It was incredible to have been supported on the day by two of our schools: Corbets Tey Special School and Hornchurch Academy Trust and their respective Business Managers, Susan Cumbers and Jo Sladden who attended the event and co-presented to the panel of judges with us.
HES’ award win is an important achievement and is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our teams and a thriving partnership model that is helping to enhance our offer to schools and settings.

Joint Working with CAMHS and Adult College
Havering Adult College was established in 1955 and has been offering high-quality education and training to adults in and around the borough. In various centres across the London Borough of Havering, we offer part-time learning in the community. At Havering Adult College we offer many opportunities and courses which are planned to fit around and compliment your lifestyle.
Family Learning is community learning that is free to all parents, carers and grandparents living and working in Havering and is offered to promote parental engagement, develop relationships and communication, and to understand and support the needs of their children.
Our aim is to work with parents and families to identify their needs in order to support their children, which can be for behavioural issues, school attainment, know how to keep children and families safe or to improve communication and relationships between family members.
We are excited to be working with the CAMHS team to offer a range of courses to support families with their understanding of mental health and emotional wellbeing. Our courses raise awareness of some of the conditions children are showing signs of – autistic spectrum disorder (Autism or ASD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, trauma and more. We are also working to provide much-needed support to parents in tackling behavioural issues that can be linked to these conditions. Through our Raising Confident Children and Challenging Behaviour programmes, we work to empower and build confidence in parents to identify changes in behaviour and develop strategies to tackle them. These courses can be as short as a one-day workshop to a 15-week accredited course.
Through this partnership, we aim to provide additional support and information to all families who have been in contact with CAMHS service.
