Code: SGC/24/0535 STAR Programme (for 0-25 Team)

Please note that this course is for the 0-25 Team.

A lot of work has taken place to develop our ‘Practice Model’ in South Gloucestershire. However, our three approaches have not always been understood in terms of how they work together.

Kingston Upon Thames (who share our practice approaches), created their own training called, ‘The STAR Programme’, to help embed their Practice Model. They are in their third year delivering this and have agreed to use this as a model to design a programme for SGC, with an aim to us being self-sufficient in delivering this by Sept 2024.

The STAR Programme brings together Signs of Safety, Trauma Informed and Systemic approaches across all 7 sessions. The sessions have the following themes:
S = Safety 2 x 0.5 days
T= Transparency 1 x 0.5 day
A = Aspirational 1 x 0.5 day
R = Relationships 2 x 0.5 day
The final session is a reflective feedback session.

Kingston upon Thames will be involved in the initial delivery and roll out of this programme from May - July, with our PSW, PDM’s and Signs of Safety team, observing these sessions, so that they are able to continue this programme with the remaining teams in September.

The training is essential for all practitioners including Service Managers and Managers and attendance is compulsory. If you are unable to attend any session, you must inform your manager and attend the session that you missed with another team.
