In 2016 the University of Exeter successfully bid for funding to scope development of a training programme for CYP Inpatient Units. These units provide treatment and residential care for children and young people with emotional, behavioural or mental health difficulties. Through this funding our programme lead Hannah Sherbersky helped to develop the national curriculum for CYP Inpatient Training, and we led a pilot programme of training in 2018.
The pilot training covered:
- 10 days per cohort
- 3 cohorts
- 4 inpatient units in the southwest
- Multidisciplinary teams (including psychologists, mental health nurses, managers and family therapists among others).
We are now recruiting for cohorts 8 and 9, which are due to start in September 2021 and January 2022, respectively. Please see the flyer below for more information.
