Telos Programmes for 2018/2019

In January 2007 Telos was set up to meet a growing demand for high quality training based on a whole person approach. Our seventh anniversary has provided an opportunity to look back at some of our most popular programmes and we have revised and improved some of our most popular programmes for 2016. These include:

Assessment Practice and Older People for AMHPs

Our workshops for AMHPS are particularly helpful for AMHPs whose daily practice does not bring them into contact with older people and we have worked with staff from seven local authorities as part of their refresher training programme.

TThese popular workshops focus on how through a person-centred approach to assessment and care planning we can achieve the least restrictive outcome for an older person in crisis. Our programmes include day workshops in assessment practice and dementia as well assessment practice in the context of depression and other mental disorders. Some feedback from a recent programme:

  • Very well paced – Ben always so informative and knowledgeable – I always enjoy his training courses’.
  • Excellent trainer, knowledgeable about dementia and good practice’

‘Good Care or Good Control’ – working with dementia for Best Interests Assessors

This popular programme will be offered again in 2015 and provides an opportunity for staff from a wide range of settings to refresh their knowledge and skills on this important legislation. Our programmes have a particular focus on keeping you up to date with case law and recent judgements. We also provide a range of programmes for other professional groups, for example physiotherapists and dentists who need to meet the requirements of the CQC.

We are always seeking to learn from feedback and evaluations and this has led us to make several changes and improvements to our most popular programmes and we will build on this experience over the next twelve months.’
