PDP success

Many congratulations to both Lynne Barbone and Chris Sirman, who have recently completed the ACM in-house Professional Development Programme.   All Case Managers take part in the PDP which incorporates taught sessions with follow up study.  Among the topics included are sessions on goal setting and client engagement, working with other professionals, working with deputies, and safeguarding.

Both Lynne and Chris work with adult clients, and have enjoyed and benefitted from the PDP.

When asked about her experience at ACM,  Lynne said “Moving to ACM 3 years ago was a very positive move for me, I am able to give the time to each client to really focus on what they want to achieve and how to live the kind of life they want to live.  The 2 year PDP cycle has given me time to reflect on my existing skills as a social worker and strengthen areas I am less familiar with.

I’m looking forward to 2022 and supporting clients with a variety of holidays, community based activities, house moves and at least one wedding!”

Chris said “On completion of the excellent PDP programme at ACM I can honestly say that I feel it is programmes like this that that are the difference between having a staff team that care and a staff team that are empowered with the best knowledge, support and guidance out there to not just care but to excel.

It is one of many reasons why ACM has achieved an Outstanding CQC rating and has genuinely benefitted me and my professional practice with clients and others under our case management and rehabilitation services.”
