An intensive 5-day course enabling successful candidates to deliver our courses in Positive Behaviour Support and Physical Interventions including the RRN Approved, BILD-ACT/UKAS certified Level 2 and 3 courses under licence within their employing organisation. Successful candidates become Associate Trainers and their employers Affiliate Organisations.
This is sometimes a preferred option for larger organisations or organisations that seek to develop local expertise.
Candidates should have at least 2 years working in a service where the management of challenging behaviours has been part of that experience, should possess or be working towards an adult eduction teaching qualification and hold a suitable first aid qualification (including emergency first aid, resuscitation and the use of an AED).
Being an Associate Trainer is potentially a demanding role. Our course is designed to prepare the candidate as much as possible for fulfilling this role but our support does not end there. We offer ongoing helpline support plus at least one annual site visit to observe training (providing feedback and guidance) and also to ensure that appropriate record keeping systems are in place. This also provides an opportunity for an annual supervision from oursleves as accredited training provider and an opportunity for ongoing support. We also see trainers annually for their refresher course.

The team at Sherwood go the extra mile to provide in-depth evidence based training, that has a had a positive impact on the service I work for. Not only is the course and assessment excellent the ongoing support and mentoring offered has proved invaluable."
