The training meets the strategic objectives outlined in the Calderdale Early Intervention Support Strategy:

  • Services are needs led and outcome focused;
  • Service support those who are most likely to require coordinated interventions identified as Tier 2 and 3 of the Calderdale Continuum of Need;
  • Coordinated integrated services with partners are delivered within the local community;
  • Services can be accessed via a single pathway which is consistent with the Calderdale Continuum of Need;
  • Agencies work with families, children and young people rather than working for or doing for them.

Our approach to the delivery of the programme will ensure that diversity is integrated into all features of the process and content.

Please note:

  • Course places are offered on a first come first served basis;
  • A penalty of £50.00 for non attendance without 72 hours notice will be charged for all courses;
  • All courses except for Leadership are fully funded on the current financial arrangements although this could alter if funding support changes.
