The Cumbria Learning and Improvement Collaborative (CLIC) collected their award for ‘Cross-sector Training’.
CLIC brings together health and care workers from all of Cumbria’s hospitals, community services, primary care and private care providers to offer training.

It brings people together to learn; building new networks and ensuring training is uniform and therefore valid if staff change jobs and organisations. It means staff are learning with colleagues from other organisations who can share different experiences, and the focus is very much on patient care and reflecting on experience, meaning staff are focused on improving all the time.

Following the success of a training programme for registered nurses, CLIC’s project provided the opportunity to deliver free clinical skill awareness workshops for all non-registered health and care support workers across the independent sector and NHS. It brought staff together from different organisations to share expertise, build networks, problem solve and build confidence.

What has the project achieved?

  • Between June 2016 and February 2017, 177 workshops were delivered
  • Over 1,300 different staff were trained from over 250 places of work
  • Staff made 1,5000+ promises to implement actions from the workshops.

Congratulations to our Clinical Skills team!
