The monthly educational meetings in protected time are designed to bring at least some of your professional development back into the daytime.
Our aim is to provide you with high-quality learning and an opportunity to network with friends and colleagues, old and new.
We appreciate that a half day practice closure is not always feasible. However, if you cannot attend a particular event at Trinity Park, your practice can take advantage of part of the afternoon closure to do some in-house training. We also use the afternoon closures to support 'mandatory' training for your staff and arrange events as per our published timetables.
The Children & Young People’s (CYP) Emotional Wellbeing Plan 2020 aims to establish a joined-up, family focused approach to all children, young people and families presenting with emotional, behavioural or mental health needs. As part of this plan, funded learning and development is now available to enable staff and families to have greater confidence and skills in responding to issues relating to emotional wellbeing and mental health. Training, including Mental Health First Aid, can be accessed via www.suffolkcpd.co.uk using the Multi-Agency icon on the home page. Click here to find out more about the Transformation Plan.
