“Here is Edward Bear, coming

downstairs now, bump, bump, bump,

on the back of his head, behind Christopher

Robin. It is, as far as he knows, the only

way of coming downstairs, but sometimes

he feels that there really is another way, if

only he could stop bumping for a moment

and think of it” (A.A. Milne 1926)

The vision: is to create an educational model which provides an accredited pathway of learning and development for PPI. This will have progression routes (from NVQ to Post Graduate Education).

This will be:

  • Accredited
  • Provide flexible pathways of learning
  • Engage the public, learners and staff at every level
  • Mapped against the Qualifications Framework
  • Mapped against the Competency Framework
realising the potential
Realising the Potential
  • Future workforce: ensuring that all commissioned healthcare education and training programmes are ‘patient focussed’ involving service users at every level: in the commissioning, design, delivery and review.
  • Current workforce: ensuring that all staff have access to training and development opportunities as part of Continuous Professional Development and Performance Reviews supported by the Knowledge and Skills Framework
  • Service Users and Carers: as the level of public involvement grows so does the need for personal training and development opportunities for service users and carers
moving forward 2006 7
Moving Forward 2006/7

Underpinning the educational model will be the creation of ‘core principles’, guidance and curriculum providing clarity for staff, learners and the public involved in learning as providers or consumers.

The approach will be inclusive and in partnership with Skills for Health and Skills for Care.
