New resources support Oliver McGowan Tier 2 Training bookings

The BSW Academy has launched an FAQ page to support the booking process for training sessions for the new Oliver McGown Mandatory Training on Learning Disability and Autism which can be accessed here

Tier 2 of the Oliver McGowan Mandatory Training on Learning Disability and Autism is for people who may need to provide care and support for autistic people or people with a learning disability.  This is a full-day face-to-face session.

Those looking to book training sessions will be able to find information on registering, booking and accessing courses.

The government is also currently seeking views on a draft code of practice for the Oliver McGowan training programme. The guidance outlines how health and care providers can meet new legislative requirements to ensure staff receive training on learning disabilities and autism appropriate to their role.

Public consultation on the draft code will run for 12 weeks. Following this, the government will consider all consultation responses to inform any final changes to the draft Code of Practice. Share your views on the draft Code here:
