Training Gap Analysis
31st October 2018
A training gap analysis was undertaken with staff from the main four CAMHS providers in Lancashire and South Cumbria to identify training needs. Evidence highlighted autism, attention deficit hyperactive disorder, learning disabilities, vulnerable children and sexual exploitation to be the main areas for learning. Staff were directed to the free MindEd resource to access learning courses to support their knowledge and understanding.
Evidence shows that over 1,500 courses have been completed by staff across Lancashire to date. Promotion of this resource is to continue to ensure all staff have the opportunity to access the learning. We’re working on having a section on the CYPEWMH Transformation Programme’s website where professionals can go to access all the resources, training and courses available to them across the area.
