The refresher menu is provided to ensure you can access the appropriate training to meet the requirements of the 5 year Reapproval process.
As quoted in the Approval and Re-approval Guidance ‘The AMHP will need to provide their Portfolio, which will include evidence of four MHA’s per Year, training attended (30 hours per year – 18 of which MUST be specialist to Mental Health)’.
The refresher menu will cover a range of courses to encourage your own professional development. Please feel free to contact us if you would like to contribute to this process.
- A Day for All
It is essential that any AMHP employed by Devon County Council convenes their five year reapproval meeting in good time to ensure their new warrants can be processed, if all the criteria has been met.
In line with discussion from the AMHP Advisory Committee and the National trend the AMHP Training programme is changing. Training will now take place in May / June and September / October, the training being duplicated.
In brief, you will now be required to attend each of the following:-
Day for All – one day in May / June or September / October.
Policing and Crime Bill – one day in May / June or one in September / October.
Portfolio Day – September / October – dates to be confirmed
AMHP Conference – to be held in March – dates to be confirmed
There will be 2 further training days to be announced later once they are confirmed.
Re-approval Training – this will no longer be offered in a block.
