Tailored Training Packages

Add to favorites Print

Organisations engaging with the DTA Training Needs Assessment Service will often identify more than one need. When this occurs DTA will work with the organisation to put together a package of relevant services and resources.

This customized combination of recommended courses, services and resources is called a Tailored Training Package (TTP).

A  Tailored Training Package will always include:

  • an audit of the environment
  • an assessment of dementia skills and knowledge

In developing TTPs, DTA can also make recommendations for courses and resource via third party suppliers – this will be particularly useful for accessing highly specialised topics or expertise.

TTPs are intended to be particularly useful to organisations wishing to bring about real systematic change, i.e. in a number of facilities or units within an aged care provider. Some TTPs will involve prolonged contact with DTA trainers as the package  is delivered at appropriate stages and times. The DTA also has a limited number of Fellowships available to support and mentor the activities of ‘Champion’ to lead the introduction of new practices from within an organisation.

Under some circumstances the development and delivery of a TTP will involve a partial cost-recovery fee.

”  The whole purpose of a Tailored Training Package (TTP) is to get alongside an organisation and to listen very carefully to what they need, and to do our very best to help them meet that need.
