Staff Successes – Celebrating Staff Achievements

Staff Successes – Celebrating Staff Achievements!

We have an amazing staff team at HOPE and there is always some fabulous news to share. A number of our staff have recently completed a range of qualifications.

Congratulations to our Senior Group Development Workers Sarah Parker and Majella Kerr, who have achieved a BA in Psychology and a BA in Sports Coaching and Development respectively. Our Autism Support Advisor Karen Cassidy has also achieved a COSCA certificate in counselling skills and our Autism Lead Leanne McNeill has completed the first year of her MSC in Autism.

Derek Russell, Senior Group Development Worker attended a tremendous amount of training in order to become a CALM Trainer, meaning he will soon be qualified to instruct our staff and others on support strategies to limit aggression and challenging behaviour and how to manage such situations.

A number of our session and support staff also graduated a range of courses, from degrees and qualifications in psychology, social care, education, and others. It is hugely important to us to celebrate the successes of our staff and we value their continued professional development and dedication. Well done to all!
