This year’s conference was a great event, with a huge turnout of staff from across the organisation, lots of new faces, thanks to our recent growth and lots of familiar ones. This year’s key note speaker was Professor Kathy Lowe PhD. Kathy is a senior development consultant with the Directorate of Learning Disability services at Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board in Cardiff. Kathy presented an informative talk on skills teaching with lots of practical suggestions which our staff can use in their work. It was a pleasure to have Kathy present at the conference and also run a workshop to help support staff gain a better understanding of Skills Teaching and the confidence to use it in their practice.
In the afternoon, the Q Team Checkers showed their latest video. Nick English, Service Manager, did another great job in supporting Q Team to talk about what they do, which was very entertaining. The Q Team enjoyed taking part in the process and shining in their moment of glory at the conference. Nick was thanked by Q Team for helping them produce the video, which was a lovely touch, and they presented him with a small token of their appreciation.
As always, we finished with the annual staff awards
