It is the employers’ responsibility to ensure their staff have the appropriate training for their roles and they will need to advise staff on whether they should complete Tier 1 or Tier 2 and if any additional training might be required. To support employers, we recently developed The Oliver McGowan Mandatory Training Tier guidance for employers with examples.
Recruiting, involving and supporting people with lived experience with The Oliver McGowan Mandatory Training
Co-production is the core principle of The Oliver McGowan Mandatory Training on Learning Disability and Autism. It is essential that experts with lived experience co-delivering the training are well supported in applying for and undertaking their training roles.
Our delivery model explains how trainers are prepared and the trainer training cascade model.
To help employers involve people with a learning disability and autistic people in co-delivering as trainers for The Oliver McGowan Mandatory Training, we published involving people with lived experience guidance. Employers may also find the NDTi report on involving experts by experience helpful.
All job descriptions and person specifications are now available.
