Academy for Paediatrics

The Tessa Jowell Academy for Paediatrics will be a free national learning and networking digital platform, connecting all NHS brain cancer centres nationally. The peer platform aims to provide specialised and accessible learning to health professionals, to drive national equity and to empower the NHS clinical workforce in line with the NHS People Plan ambitions (1). The Academy is informed by insights from the Tessa Jowell Brain Cancer Mission Centre of Excellence for Children programme (2).

Just like the Adult Academy, the Paediatric Academy will be co-designed and delivered with the professional brain cancer community, dynamically responding to the evolving needs of this group and their patients.



The resources available are guided by the community, so let us know if you would like to be involved in its development or have requests you would like to share.
