All you need to know about our trauma-informed practice learning portal.

Welcome to our trauma-informed practice learning portal, in partnership with Psychotherapy Excellence, which provides a safe learning environment for all paid colleagues. This is an additional learning opportunity over and above the face to face trauma-informed practice training being delivered across the organisation. Please see the diagram below where it fits in, into our overall strategy.

No matter what part of the organisation you work in, it is important to us that you have the right opportunities to learn and grow at work by developing and enhancing your skills and knowledge in your job role. We want all our staff to have access to the very best trauma training. 

You are required to register on the portal the first time you access it.  You will have your own training account and regardless of your current knowledge and expertise in the field of trauma there will hopefully be some courses of interest to you. The courses are at foundation, intermediate and advance levels. 

The content can be used towards CPD as part of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) or British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) accreditation and is delivered by leading international experts in the trauma and adversity field.  

The online courses and digital recordings focus on trauma and adversity therefore please be aware and prepared that the content may be emotive and triggering.  To support you, Barnardo’s offers the Employee Assistance Programme which can be accessed here.

As part of our commitment to being a learning organisation, the courses on this portal will contribute to your ongoing development. These learning opportunities are part of Barnardo’s committment to ensure all staff engage in a minimum of 3 days learning per year.
