Cultural competence for the line managers of internationally educated colleagues
We are supporting organisations to develop a group of trainers who can deliver workshops to managers who have completed our online learning. You can read more about this package by clicking on the button below.
We have several courses scheduled throughout 2023-24. The next cohort will be running from the beginning of September, with the end of course workshops taking place on 31st October and 1st November. Those that have completed the trainers course are also able to offer the course locally.
If you are an individual interested in the training, you will speak to the international recruitment lead in your organisation. If you are a trust, then details of the training should have been passed to your IR lead and Deputy Chief Nurse who will need to complete an expression of interest form on behalf of the trust and nominate a trust liaison.
We only require one liaison from each trust. Therefore, if more than one person from a trust has been put forward, you will need to decide amongst yourselves who will take on the role. You can also deputise internally however this information will not be required for our records. We do however request that you update us as soon as possible if the liaison for your trust is replaced so that we can ensure our records are up to date.
Yes, the course was piloted and evaluated. Findings overall were very positive, including evidence of an increase in self-assessed cultural competence. More information is available on request.
Once we have received your details through our online form, we will send you an email with instructions on how to sign up to the online course. Once enrolled you will also be able to choose the workshop you wish to attend at the end of the course. We will then send a calendar invitation for your chosen workshop (this will be facilitated via MS Teams).
I have completed the online learning element of the course however I am unable to attend the workshop on any of the available dates for my cohort.
If you have completed the online learning element but cannot attend the scheduled workshop please let your trust liaison know as soon as possible. You will be able to attend a workshop for the next cohort or if there is a trainer within your trust you will be able to attend one of their scheduled workshop sessions instead.
We will provide you with a training pack which will include a manual and slide deck. In addition to this there will be monthly drop-in sessions with a community of trainers to provide peer-to-peer support and ideas. It is also important to have internationally educated colleagues present during your workshop sessions who can share their lived experience and you should try to identify these within your organisation.
