seAp secure contract for Basic Advocacy Training with Northamptonshire County Council
Staff at Northamptonshire County Council will understand what independent advocacy is and how it can benefit those they work with after the council awarded seAp the contract to deliver Basic Advocacy Training to their staff.
seAp won the year-long contract after a competitive tender. Learning and Development Manager, Paulene Hamilton commented, “Northamptonshire Council selected seAp because our trainers are all qualified practising advocates and our tender demonstrated excellent value for money.”
After completing the two-day course Northamptonshire Council staff will have a clear understanding of advocacy principles and practices and an overview of the role and responsibilities of an independent advocate. The course is highly interactive and includes activities that demonstrate, through role play for example, the skills required to be an independent advocate. Northamptonshire Council decided to commission advocacy training for their staff because they felt it was important that all their staff were aware of how to support vulnerable people within the community to get their voice heard.
seAp provide a wide range of accredited and professional development course and also offer bespoke courses to meet specific needs. All seAp trainers are practicing independent advocates or advocacy service managers as well as qualified trainers.
