Surveys for staff working in Trusts in the South region

Making sure people who work in NHS Trusts have the training they need to support people with learning disabilities

The South Regional Health Education England Intellectual Disabilities programme has commissioned the National Development Team for Inclusion (NDTi) to find and share best practice in training people who work in NHS Trusts to support people with learning disabilities.

We have developed two short online surveys for staff working in NHS Trusts across the South region:

  1. The first is to be completed by a member of the Trust training department or the learning disability lead for the Trust. This survey asks about the format and the content of the training provided. Trusts will have the opportunity to share their examples of good practice (up to 15 minute survey) and can be found here.
  2. The second can be completed by any member of Trust staff. This survey seeks to explore their experience and views of learning disability awareness training (5-10-minute survey) and can be found here.

The findings will inform recommendations which could help NHS Trusts to strengthen their training programmes to ensure they are more effective and that they are meeting the required standards as laid out in the recent government announcement to make learning disability training mandatory for NHS and social care providers by April 2021.

A letter from Health Education England with more detail about the work is available here.
