New Vocational Training Development Tool for SME's

Date: 21 Sep 2012

A new Vocational Training Development Tool was launched at a community mental health conference in Lithuania last week.

It's a free-to-use tool that has been developed for small, medium and large organisations involved in vocational training in areas such as mental health, disability and public health. The tool emphasises the importance of stakeholder involvement in prioritisation, identification and review of impact, drawing on concepts used in public health.

It is published in English, but will be available in Greek, Slovenian, Polish and Lithuanian later this year -it has been funded through the EU. Please feel free to distribute to any colleagues or organisations that might want to use it.

The tool can be accessed at the main link: www.plymouthdevelopmenttool.eu

Physical Activity

Physical activity programmes at work have been found to reduce absenteeism by up to 20%: physically active workers take 27% fewer sick days. (Start Active, Stay Active)

Well Being Boost

A study of FTSE-100 companies conducted by Business in the Community (BITC) and Ipsos Mori, found that firms that actively promoted staff well-being and workplace health policies recorded a 10 per cent boost in their financial performance.
