ABOUT OUR LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME

Solihull CCG’s learning and development programme has been revised and will be continually developed to take account of the following: 

All healthcare staff have a responsibility to keep up to date in line with professional codes, professional standards, national and local policy.  We strongly recommend:

  • That after attending one of our courses and/or after accessing other learning opportunities you undertake a reflective piece on your learning and share with your supervisor and/or manager and/or peer support.
  • Annual appraisals/personal development reviews focus on adult and child safeguarding to ensure workers are up to date with national and local changes and competencies.
How we continue to evaluate our courses:

In addition to on the day evaluations, during September/October 2015, Solihull CCG will undertake a survey monkey so that the 2016/17 programme can be reviewed by the end of November 2015.  Thereafter the programme will be reviewed at a minimum, every 6 months and/or sooner if issues/reports/cases and/or serious incidents arise triggering an update.

ACCESS TO LOCAL SAFEGUARDING BOARDS TRAINING

Organisations need to take account of courses and refreshers suggested via the Joint Safeguarding Boards and Domestic Abuse Priority Group/Forum within your local areas. For updates see
