Independent Support 1 day refresher training
This training is aimed at those who have already completed the two day course but would like a refresher - maybe you completed it a long time ago and have not yet worked directly as an IS or perhaps you simply want an update on the legislative changes over the last 12 months?
By attending this course you will:
- Be brought up to date on any legislative changes made since the IS training was launched that impacts on the role
- Have an opportunity to reflect on progress of the reforms and their valuable contribution to date
- Understand key barriers and challenges for Independent Supporters and explore the solutions
- Improve your confidence to practically deliver Independent Support
- Receive a delegate pack of supporting information
This session is not for those new to IS training. If you are new to IS training you need to register for the full two day course through your agency.
Please visit the CDC Independent Support training page for further information on how to register for online training and for dates and regions for the face-to-face Legal and RoIS training.
Who should attend?
This is a closed course and only available to Independent Supporters (full time, part time or in a volunteer capacity) who have been recruited by IS agencies and Information Advice and Support Services under contract to Council for Disabled Children.
