Initial training options

It is a condition of licensing that each worker must participate in at least the “basics course” before they start using the Star with clients.

If you have 6 or more workers to train, we can run an in-house 7-hour course on-site or through virtual workshops using zoom.

If there are fewer than 6 workers, we can include them in one of our “open” courses, run virtually.

This “basics” course is best suited for experienced practitioners with established skills for client engagement, facilitating “difficult conversations” and client centred planning.

An “enhanced course”- usually at least 14 hours- can also be offered on-site or virtually. This is usually a better choice for staff at earlier stages of developing skills for client engagement, facilitating “difficult conversations” and client centred planning. As well as the content covered in the basics course, this includes deeper exploration of the challenges your staff may face in introducing the Outcomes Star to their work.

Once staff have been using the Outcomes Star for some time, we offer further customised training options, including:

  • an “early days practice review” to help gather the emerging practice wisdom in your team,
  • using the Star in Supervision for team leaders and managers
  • advanced skill development for “challenging conversations” and/or client-centred action planning
  • connecting the Outcomes Star with specific practice frameworks such as strengths-based or narrative approaches and motivational interviewing.
