Enhanced AWI Practitioner training

Everyone needs to care - conference image reduced





Event Outline

The AWI Masterclasses we delivered with Sandra McDonald in 2019 were hugely successful, with delegates awarding performance scores for the events averaging 92/100. However as a next step, delegates suggested they would like more time to put the learning into practice; to explore case studies and to undertake small group work focusing on some of the key themes.

As a result, we have developed a stand-alone Enhanced AWI Practitioner course for 2020 which offers delegates this very opportunity. The course has been designed to work for health & social care professionals, advocates, third sector practitioners and family law solicitors experienced in dealing with Adults with Incapacity (AwI) legislation (note: you do not need to have attended our 2019 series, to join this course).
