Facilitate a Person-centred Review

In brief…

This course teaches a process that puts the person at the centre of their review.

It draws on person-centred thinking tools to prepare for and facilitate a review. It demonstrates how to develop person-centred outcomes, and a clear and focused action plan with the person.

What is a Person-centred Review?

A person-centred review uses person-centred thinking tools to explore what is important to a someone now and in the future. It looks at what support they need and what is working and not working from different perspectives to agree outcomes and actions for change. It encourages people to aspire to improve their life, and gathers and shares information to do this.  It meets statutory requirements, and is very different to traditional reviews.

We can deliver this course on the Preparing for Adulthood Review, if you are involved in the SEND reforms. This can help you in producing a new Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan.

Who is this for?

If you are responsible for facilitating reviews, or you are a care manager, social worker, reviewing officer, health professional, provider manager, teacher, SENCO, educational psychologists, or transition worker, then this course is for you.
