CORC Training reflections

Having successfully delivered the first series of CORC online training webinars, and ahead of the new programme starting in September, it seemed appropriate to take some time to reflect and consider the impact and value of these sessions, along with sharing the new schedule of dates.

CORC Training and Events schedule (2023 to 2024)

As organisations and settings welcome new staff, and individuals evolve and progress in their understanding and use of outcome measures, the need for our training is an ongoing one. So we’re delighted that details about the programme of 2023-2024 online training webinars are on the CORC website and are available to book now:

If you’re not sure which session is most suitable for you and your colleagues, information about the aims of each session and what learning outcomes attendees can expect is provided. CORC members can attend for free (the number of places available is subject to membership type) and for non-members the cost is just £25 per session but places are limited so do book now. 

Should you feel that the sessions don’t quite meet the objectives of your setting or the needs of your colleagues, please do get in touch to discuss the option of CORC delivering bespoke training for your organisation. The focus and content can be developed to address specific circumstances or for delivery to larger audiences – we’d be delighted to chat things through with you. 

We look forward to seeing some of you soon. 

Training reflections (2022 to 2023)

Specifically developed in response to meet the needs of colleagues working to improve the mental wellbeing of children and young people, our online training webinars have proven to be incredibly popular with members and non-members alike. Designed to consider and explore relevant topics in an accessible and informative way, the content of each 90-minute session was tailored to build knowledge, develop expertise and provide practical advice that was relevant regardless of setting or organisation. 

When developing the training programme, it was clear that all levels of familiarity and experience with outcome and experience measures needed to be catered for, so sessions providing an introduction to outcome measures, choosing outcome measures for an intervention or service, and the use of measures in supervision were offered.  

Not only did we see high numbers of bookings and attendance at these sessions, but the engagement of attendees during them was really positive. This was particularly notable during the ‘Engaging young people in routine outcome monitoring’ session when colleagues had the opportunity to not only reflect on current practice but also to share their thoughts, ideas and experience on how to embed meaningful participation to ensure impact and engagement. 

As training leads, Nick, Rachael and Lee found that even where measures were already being used in a service, some participants that attended did so as a means of refreshing their knowledge, to improve their confidence in using measures, or to develop their understanding and find out more. It was evident that whatever the experience or knowledge-level of attendees, everyone was able to benefit from key ‘take-aways’ that could be used to inform their practice, shared with colleagues or that deepened their understanding.
