Investing in PBS

As a specialist Provider in the Autism and Learning Disability sector, Godfrey Care has significantly invested in developing the Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) model across all our services. In July 2023, we recruited a PBS Clinical Lead to create and implement the function with a clear strategy for the organisation, followed by recruiting a PBS Clinical Practitioner in January 2024. Our PBS Team offer direct clinical support with the implementation of Functional Behaviour Assessments, Behaviour Support Plans, Specialist Assessments and Transitions, Restriction Reduction Plans, Specialist Training for teams, and direct in-service support to mentor and coach staff to deliver interventions.

Adding to our existing team, the position of a full-time PBS Clinical Associate was created as a pathway for one of our Support Workers or Team Leaders to be supported in retraining for a new career with us. We’ve chosen to invest in this approach as we recognise that one of the greatest assets we have to ensure the people we support have fantastic lives is that of our teams. Creating opportunities for our teams to grow and develop as we expand as a company is of paramount importance to us. 

This new role represents a significant investment in accredited training for the successful candidate, who will undertake accredited NAPPI Level 4 Master Training alongside the BILD BTEC Level 5 Diploma in Positive Behaviour Support. Once the successful candidate has finished their initial 12-month training period as a Clinical Associate under the supervision of our PBS Team, they will qualify to become a certified PBS Clinical Practitioner.

We firmly believe in supporting everyone, both the people we support and our staff teams, to reach their full potential and continually shape who we are as a specialist Provider.
