Here is how the PLP will help you:

  • Increase your knowledge and confidence: understand the role
  • Be empowered: reduce risk and increase success in the role; learn tools and effective ways of working
  • Be equipped: gain 'day to day' life skills
  • Excel in the role or begin a journey in a rewarding career path of link working

Our PLP is helpful whether you are new, experienced, or just want to enhance your knowledge and skills. Our professional learning programme consists of  4 certification courses. See PLP courses

Peer Supervision/Reflective Practice

Held in small group sessions, Peer Supervision/Reflective Practice provides a safe space for Link workers to reflect, offload, learn, and exchange ideas with their peers. This allows members to feel supported and connected to one another. Reflective practice is key to your personal development.

Peer Mentoring

It is proven that peer mentoring increases productivity and motivation in Link worker morales. By working closely with peers, not only do you build your own resilience and learn from other practices, but you also get to support those who aspire to improve too.

Connections

We provide an engaging UK peer community that allows members to network, get support, share best practice tips and ideas. It’s all part of life-long learning and providing psychological safety to improve wellbeing.
