CORC for Schools
The Child Outcomes Research Consortium is a learning collaboration of mental health providers, schools, funders, service user groups and researchers jointly committed to collecting and using routinely collected outcome data to enhance service provision and improve understanding of how best to help young people with mental health and wellbeing issues and their families. CORC for Schools aims to bring CORC approaches into the school context so that young people and their families receive the best help possible.
CORC supports schools to measure the impact of mental health and well-being care using both student-reported well-being measures and academic engagement measures (such as attendance, attainment and behaviour). By measuring impact, schools can understand and demonstrate where interventions have been effective and improve the planning and resourcing of child-centred support. CORC's team of mental health measurement experts can work with individual schools, clusters or academy trusts through a CORC for Schools membership.
CORC membership for Schools incudes:
- Advice and training on evaluation of mental health and wellbeing interventions in a school context
- Shared learning events, and links with bodies at the forefront of mental health and wellbeing research and measurement
- Dedicated support in collecting and analysing your outcomes data, including comparison to your existing educational data
