Children’s Wellbeing Practitioner Programme – Now Accepting Expressions of Interest

We are now open to receiving Expressions of Interest from services looking to create new CWP posts within their service.

CWPs offer brief, focused evidence-based interventions in the form of low intensity support and guided self-help to young people who demonstrate mild/moderate:
• Anxiety (primary and secondary school age)
• Low mood (adolescents)
• Common behavioural difficulties (working with parents for under 8s)

Providers (NHS, Local Authority, Voluntary Sector) and CCGs can apply in partnership for a funding package to create up to 4 CWP training posts at band 4, which in previous cohorts has included:

  • 1 year certificate level CWP training course at University College London or Kings College London for trainee CWPs
  • Salary support at the equivalent of NHS mid-point band 4 for each trainee CWP (in addition to on costs and high-cost living area weighting where applicable)
  • Placement support funding for each service to recruit a CWP Supervisor/Service Development lead to provide intense supervision and support for 1 day a week per CWP within their service
  • A training course for new CWP supervisors

PLEASE NOTE: We are currently awaiting news from Health Education England (HEE) about funding for the October 2019 cohort and so we will confirm the final offer as soon as possible.
