This event is an interactive day to raise awareness of dementia, in support of the government’s Dementia Strategy. The day will help you ensure that your workforce have the right skills to provide a high quality service for people with dementia in accordance with the Common Core Principles for Supporting People with Dementia.

In 2011, the Department of Health asked Skills for Health to work in partnership with Skills for Care to develop the Common Core Principles for Supporting People with Dementia. The Common Core Principles were developed to support workforce development within health and social care settings and service. The Common Core Principles enhances the skills, confidence and communication of the workforce and provide the foundations for learning and development.

What is the aim of this event?

This workshop has been developed as a Train the Trainer event. It aims to guide trainers from across all health and social care settings through a range of selected learning resources, which they could use with staff in their organisation, to help embed the 8 Common Core Principles.
