Creating a Positive Behaviour Support organisational and workforce development framework for TCPs and Service Providers

Date: 29 June 2017 – 12:30 to 13:30 (UK time)

Guest speakers: Yvonne Newbold, Sarah Leitch BILD (British Institute of Learning Disabilities)
The overall aim of Positive Behaviour Support is to improve quality of life. This webinar describes the Positive Behaviour Support workforce development framework Black Country TCP commissioned from BILD, and will provide attendees with a model to shape their own services.

The framework had to be flexible enough for a workforce that provides support to people with a range of needs within a range of different service types and structures. It also had to be robust enough to ensure clear competencies were established at every level and underpinned by knowledge of how learning is best transferred into practice. It used the Positive Behaviour Support Competence framework (developed by PBS Academy) as an underpinning structure. The importance of practice leaders to support organisational and workforce development is also discussed in the webinar.
