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

Costs

The annual cost of sickness absence and worklessness associated with working-age ill health in the UK is put at more than £100 billion (more than Portugal's GDP).

Communication

Establishing and using effective channels of communication that engage employees are a key component in promoting employee health.  Examples: Health Notice Boards, Team Briefings, Internet/Intranet, Email, Wage Packet Inserts, Staff Surveys.
