Person Centred Active Support Training Day Two
Short Course

Day Two of the training course

The second day will focus on the skills and knowledge required for training and leadership. Participants are required to attend both days. The assumption will be that people have experience of working with people with intellectual disabilities in a facilitative way and are working in an organisation where they can gain hands on practice in between sessions and where they can produce their videos for certification.

Each individual who attends or the organisation that they work for need to have a copy of the Person-centred Active Support training materials ( ) In order to obtain a certificate, following training, you will need to submit two satisfactory video clips - one of you supporting someone with severe intellectual disabilities  to engage in a short activity around their home and one of your providing feedback to a member of staff who has just provided support to someone. You will obviously need to gain consent for these videos and will need to provide a short introduction to the person and the activity featured. You will be given more guidance about this on the first training. To proceed to certification you will need to have attended both days. More information on certification will be provided on the day.
