Learning Hub

One of the many strengths of the Trauma Informed Plymouth Network is its diversity with members from education, health, the voluntary and community sector, social care, the justice system and so much more; all with Lived Experience at its heart. We aim to provide a platform and forum to share our learning and are constantly reflecting and adapting, updating and evolving our workforce development offers to respond to the needs of our city.
A large workforce development survey, commissioned by Plymouth City Council in 2018, informed our training development. The survey found that 83% of Plymouth respondents saw trauma informed practice, as a priority but only 28% had received any training.

In response, the workforce development branch of the Network developed a Trauma Informed Practice course which has kindly been coordinated by the Plymouth Safeguarding Children Partnership. This L3 certificated safeguarding course introduces the Network’s Approach to Envisioning Plymouth as a Trauma Informed City and explores the key values underpinning a trauma informed approach.
