Specialist training

We have a specific learning and development pathway for all staff working with people with brain injuries. The training staff receive is tailored to meet the needs of the individuals they are supporting but also includes a number of advances levels of brain injury support training.

This includes a mandatory five module face-to-face learning programme that is delivered by expert trainers. We encourage our support workers to then progress onto a qualification pathway and complete an apprenticeship, which is tailored to providing specialist care and support for people with brain injuries. E-learning awareness courses are also made available at a foundation level.

To further develop our specialist pathway we ensure that all staff are appropriately trained in the tools that they utilise to provide excellent care and support. In particular, advanced training is provided for Goal Attainment Scaling (GAS) and Therapy Outcome Measures (TOMS).

Senior managers are also offered the opportunity to attend a local university programme and qualify in a Post Graduate Continuing Professional Development pathway.
