New round of SRI2 Learning Networks

20th June 2012

Following on from the highly popular first set of SRI 2 Learning Networks that took place last year, SRN is now preparing to offer other learning opportunities for 2012. Network Manager, John McCormack offers a quick preview.

The next round of SRI2 Learning Network’s, delivered in partnership with NHS Education for Scotland, will for the first time feature a Foundation and Advanced Course.

SRI 2 Learning Network Foundation Course

This two day course is designed to support practitioners and facilitators to engage with and complete the Scottish Recovery Indicator in their service. The learning experience will include input in how to facilitate the service user and carer interviews and all other practical aspects of the tool. There will be input on the ‘ingredients for success’ and how to get the best out of the whole SRI 2 experience. Participation in these learning communities helps transform the practices in services; helps practitioners facilitate SRI-2 confidently; engages them in ongoing peer support, coaches and mentors them through the change process; and helps them assess the impact of their efforts, in order to continuously improve performance.

SRI-2 Learning Networks result in learning experiences that helps practitioners:

•    Engage with and complete an SRI-2.
•    Integrate recovery knowledge and skills, with values based practice.
•    Achieve their aspirations in terms of facilitating service development.
•    Participate in meaningful experiential learning.
•    Provide exemplary person centred, recovery focused services.
•    Demonstrate the connection to other mental health policies and reports.
•    Coach and support other members of the learning network through the SRI-2 process.

Learning Network Advanced Course

This course is targeted at those practitioners who have already completed an SRI 2 and who can now be seen as recovery champions and change agents. The purpose of this one day course is to bring together these leaders in recovery focused practice to build on their capacity to:

•    Support others to use the tool for practice development.
•    Enact a sustainability strategy for recovery focused practice.
•    Share practice based knowledge and expertise.
•    Deliver outcome focused and person centred practice

Both of the above course offer tools and tips that have been gained by practitioners who have been successfully delivering recovery focused services.

Looking ahead…
