Social Prescribing Link Worker Training

We have been developing and delivering social prescribing in partnership with our clinical colleagues in the Bromley by Bow Health Practice and our local community for over twenty years. We have now consolidated our learning to develop discrete training packages to support link workers tin their role.

Level Three Qualification in Social Prescribing

The Bromley by Bow Centre with partners, University of East London and Conexus have devised and are delivering the first accredited and regulated course for social prescribing link workers. This is a full level 3 qualification and is awarded by Certa, part of the Skills and Education Group. This training is suited for anyone that is planning to, or is already delivering a social prescribing service, such as link workers, community navigators and health & wellbeing advisors.

Bespoke five day programme

We have developed a bespoke five day training offer that can be tailored to CCG’s and STP’s and includes local speakers to feature within this training. Elements of this training can include an Introduction to Social Prescribing; working in partnership with local providers to understand Community Development and local support offers for clients; Working with Vulnerable Adults and Supporting Behaviour Changes and Managing Caseload and Supervision. We are also able to cater for additional training needs such as Social Prescribing and evaluating outcomes.

One to four day training courses

The Bromley by Bow with its partner University of East London have also devised a series of one day courses which can be delivered in any combination of the following four modules:
Introduction to social prescribing
Social Prescribing and community based solutions
Working with vulnerable adults, motivational interviewing and coaching
Managing caseloads, reflective practice and peer supervision

New dates will be added in the new year.
