Professional Development Toolkits

Our peer-led, professional development toolkits support workforce development by bringing practical, challenging and effective tools that bring about attitudinal change. We developed these training days to complement existing knowledge and skills within welfare to work, substance misuse, mental health, homelessness and criminal justice sectors.

The key objectives are to bring about change using a peer-led perspective to embed key skills, awareness and effective interactions that promote personal responsibility within recovery, resilience, rehabilitation and recruitment sectors.

We recognise the importance of continually re-enforcing and building on the skills and knowledge of frontline staff to deliver effective and up to date services. Performance and monitoring has become an important part of community development alongside quality assurance and partnership working.

Our professional development toolkits evolve with new and existing challenges to support organisational culture change.

Can and do people stop without support, if so how do they do it?

We look into the different types of domestic abuse and most importantly how to support people to engage effectively, gaining commitment towards agreed planned actions, ensuring individuals feel safe, connected and involved.

It is becoming increasingly important to reach young people as early as possible to educate them about the dangers of grooming.  This training covers awareness of gangs, county lines, knife crime, grooming techniques, drugs and recruitment. This is aimed at helping professionals feel confident in delivering effective techniques and handle difficult conversations, creating awareness and resilience in young people ideally before they come into contact with “recruiters”. This also includes techniques in supporting young people to leave gangs.

The UK has become more culturally diverse each year and as such, so have workplaces. Hate crime is increasing, leaving many individuals and communities feeling isolated. Equality and Diversity training is essential training covering legal, social and personal aspects. The course shows you how you can build stronger relationships with those around you, fostering a culture of respect and inclusion, where everyone feels appreciated, valued and empowered.
