Free event: Transforming care and positive behavioural support

If you support people who have a learning disability and/ or autism who display or are at risk of displaying behaviour which challenges, including employers, commissioners and anyone involved in workforce development, you may be interested in this free event from Skills for Care.

The event takes place on Wednesday 27 June from 10am - 4pm at The Trinity Centre in Cambridge. It will focus on positive behavioural support (PBS) and how you can use it to support you in your role. You’ll also help to shape a workforce development strategy for PBS and transforming care for your local area.

It will:

  • explain what PBS is and how it can support people with a learning disability and/ or autism, including talks from local experts in the field
  • share good practice examples of training around PBS and autism, and what’s happening already locally
  • identify gaps and opportunities to improve local PBS training and support
  • shape local workforce development around PBS
  • initiate or support local PBS networks.

You’ll also explore how employers, commissioners and other support groups can build networks and implement their local transforming care plan.
