Supporting Others: Link and Lead Roles

Multiple roles for taking new thinking forward

SUPPORTING OTHERS:  

 

In the first stages of training, professionals can take part purely for I MATTER INFORMED PRACTICE and to build their own confidence in their role, and giving attention to the importance of their own wellbeing and work-life balance issues.  Sometimes this is really enough.

Sometimes there is interest in going onto further training or to supporting others

 

When it comes to supporting others there are a number of key roles and licences.  Each require a specific additional training step and an appropriate membership agreement and personal plan.   

I Matter Is designed to support joined up practice between education an health in school and community settings.

The most important is a distinction between a Link or a Lead role

INDIVIDUAL LICENCE AND ROLES:

All professionals wanting to have an approved role must be members OR have their membership fee included in a specific organisational licence
