Abstract

Purpose: This case study details the development of a bespoke programme of learning for Support Workers employed in Mental Health sector.

Design: The programme was designed to serve three purposes: to offer a route into Mental Health Nursing; to upskill those who wanted to remain as a Support Worker; to improve the quality of care provided.
Findings: The paper shares the perspectives of the local Partnership Trust, a Support Worker on the programme and the Programme Director.

Originality/Value: Employers within the Mental Health sector are encouraged to develop their own staff and Universities are urged to think differently about curriculum design.
