This crucial function forms the core work of the Woodbrook Centre of Excellence which includes providing cross-sector training and educational programmes that are informed by evidenced best practice, post-doctoral research and the synergies arising from Woodbrook’s integrated serviced streams.
These standard setting objectives will be assisted by establishing mutually supportive relationships with third level educational institutions as well as with kindred healthcare services providers to include Public, Private or Third Sector organisations.
Woodbrook’s full trajectory service framework will also provide excellent scope for extensive opportunities for a diverse range of complimentary post-doctoral and post-registration positions for those healthcare professionals seeking to specialise in the care, treatment and development of new effective transition pathways to enhance the lives of individuals being supported by Woodbrook’s Outreach & Homecare.
In terms of vocational training, the Woodbrook team will work with international accreditation organisations to both assist in the development of bespoke specialist SMPLD care courses that enable healthcare support staff to gain internationally recognised awards.
The refurbished and restored Aske House will be the home of Woodbrook Educational with appropriate internship placements within Woodbrook’s differing service platforms for hands-on training.
Woodbrook Educational will reach out internationally once an appropriate threshold of expertise has been reached. Therefore, the centre will provide from inception for Irish and internationally based trainees seeking to successfully complete the various training programs that will be offered. To facilitate that programme development a limited level of overnight residential accommodation will be provided within Aske House
