On Friday 16th March, the London and South East CYP IAPT Learning Collaborative hosted a Shared Learning Event to celebrate and showcase all of the great work that has gone into the pilot year of the CWP programme. The CWP programme aims to skill up a new workforce in delivering brief, focused evidence-based interventions to children and young people who demonstrate mild to moderate anxiety, low mood and common behavioural difficulties. Over the last year, we have trained 60 CWPs across 15 CYP IAPT Partnerships.
The Shared Learning Event gave each Partnership the opportunity to present on their experiences of implementing this new programme and share learning about what has worked well and any challenges they have encountered when setting up a new CWP service. There was also an opportunity to look at CWP Activity, Experience and Outcomes Data collected over the past year and hear first-hand experiences from children and young people, parents and teachers involved in the programme.
