National Trauma Training Framework

  • Scottish Government have commissioned NHS Education Scotland to lead the development of a comprehensive National Trauma Skills and Knowledge Framework and National Training Plan for those working with people across the lifespan (including children and young people) who are affected by trauma and abuse in Scotland.

  • NES have consulted widely in the development of the Framework.  the Framework is expected to continue to develop as an online resource.

  • The Transforming Trauma Knowledge and Skill Framework is expected to be published end of  May 2017. The Framework will enable practitioners working in the statutory and voluntary sectors to understand the knowledge and skills  required to be able to identify risk of abuse and be able to respond in a way which will enable positive outcomes for people affected by abuse and trauma.  A National Training Plan will then be developed over the following two years and a plan for implementation will be developed.  The NHS Education Scotland website has a webpage dedicated to the Framework and outlines the aims and intentions of the project as well as timescales for completion.  This can be found at http://www.nes.scot.nhs.uk/education-and-training/by-discipline/psychology/multiprofessional-psychology/national-trauma-training-framework.aspx
