High quality training with the right values
Our experience is at the heart of our training - a high quality service built on an in-depth understanding of learning disability practice, delivered by training consultants who know what makes for good support, and what makes for effective training.
Our training brings the latest approaches and lots of good practice examples and is underpinned by the right values. Person-centred approaches, the rights of the person being supported and the value families can contribute, are at the heart of all our training.
We are the UK leader in training in positive behaviour support approaches.
Training to meet your needs
We help develop workforce understanding and skills for a range of organisations, large and small, both those working in learning disability and autism support, and those in in the wider economy, in sectors such as leisure and retail.
We’re experienced in delivering training suitable for new staff - BILD’s introductory training programmes are often built into organisational induction programmes.
We can also provide training for more established staff groups who need an understanding of effective communication and support for people with learning disabilities or autism - perhaps where they have not supported these groups previously.
And for organisations who want to make sure their staff are able to provide a great experience for all their customers, our understanding learning disabilities and autism awareness training can provide the solution.
All of this training can be adapted to meet your particular needs.
Targeted and cost effective training
We can train up to 15 staff in their workplace to a programme that has been developed with you. This ensures that what's delivered has the greatest relevance to your organisation’s needs and practice, and is an efficient and cost-effective way to develop the understanding and skills of your workforce.
Our support staff are experienced in meeting the needs of our customers and they have a great reputation for the quality of their support.
Our bank of training consultants usually enables us to offer greater flexibility on dates.
All of our workplace training programmes can be adapted to meet the specific needs of staff in your organisation, contact us to discuss what you are looking for and how we can help provide that for you.

CAPBS Organisational and Workforce Development Framework
The CAPBS Framework recognises that services and organisations are often providing a mixture of supports at different levels and may have different PBS workforce development needs at different times.
The PBS three tiered approach to prevention, adapted from the school wide model, published by the OSEP Centre at the University of Oregon is useful to help understand the range of supports needed.
In the CAPBS Framework, each tier is tailored to the training needs of different roles and functions to ensure that the right staff have the right competencies to facilitate organisational development.
The framework is aimed at organisations that provide services across adult health and social care, as well as schools, but could be adapted for family carers and PAs. Some organisations and Transforming Care Partnerships may only need to commission additional training within those tiers where they do not already have appropriate training in place.
