We are continually looking for ways to improve our training and education in dementia for the county and recognise that the Dementia Leaders need to be in place to fully support Dementia Link Workers (DLW). The following pathway explains the new route for being able to access the DLW course for your organisation and teams.
So what we would like to offer the county is a new and improved way of evidencing and delivering quality dementia services.
Once you, or an appropriate team member, has completed the Dementia Leadership Award, We will provide a Dementia Link Worker course (DLW), at a Level 3 BTEC award from January 2014
Manager, Clinical Lead, Service provider apply to complete DLA ⇒Meets the criteria application accepted⇒Completes the award⇒Organisation can then apply for staff to train as the Dementia Link worker
The DLW course continues to be funded jointly by Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group and Gloucestershire County Council.
There is a small charge of £200.00 for the DLA which covers the cost of resources and refreshments.
If you would like to apply for the next DLA course please contact Amanda Rawlins on firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01242 634435
