Lancashire and South Cumbria Joint Training Partnership Launch event

  We are pleased to invite partners and stakeholders…

The Lancashire and South Cumbria area includes Lancashire, Blackpool, Blackburn with Darwin and South Cumbria.

The Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care System’s  Transforming Care Partnership  knows that having well trained and knowledgeable professionals, families and experts by experience will strengthen community services, reduce reliance on inpatient facilities, promote independent living, and underpin the integration of services (including children and young people) and support parents and carers to stay well in the community.

We have therefore set up a Pan Lancashire and South Cumbria Learning Disability and Autism Joint Training Partnership to help all partners to access a wide variety of good quality training.

Why is training and development so important?

First and foremost it can help to improve service quality and outcomes for people with learning disabilities/autism, their families and carers. But it can also have other benefits for organisations

Improved employee performance

Improved job satisfaction and morale

Address weaknesses and challenges in the system and within individual organisations

Improve quality standards

Increase innovation, help to develop new strategies and ways of working

Reduce employee turnover

Increased skills, confidence and well being

Enhances organisational reputation and profile.

Our Ambition

To develop a workforce that is appropriately trained to provide a person-centred approach, reduce health inequalities and provide excellent quality care

To develop a workforce with the appropriate values and behaviour to deliver care for vulnerable children and adults with learning disabilities and or autism

To work with service providers to identify and address gaps in skills and competencies and build their competence to improve service quality and outcomes for people with learning disabilities, autism, their families and carers.

To support commissioners and provider organisations to deliver sustainable improvement and to respond to strategic and policy developments.

To enable provider agencies to recognise their particular strengths and weaknesses, and to use this as a foundation for sharing learning and best practice.

To provide opportunities for continuous professional development, promote careers within health and social care services and by doing this improve retention

To act as a single point of information for organisations to access a wide range of information, quality assessed training and learning opportunities across pan Lancashire and South Cumbria

To develop a model that will support multi agency working and the development of joint training initiatives and working groups to improve practice, efficiency and whole system improvement

To develop a human rights-based approach to training which, wherever possible, is co-produced, co-delivered and evaluated by people with learning disabilities and their family carers
