Phase 1 Training
On the 5th and 6th of June 2018, two teams undertook basic training in Intensive Engagement in Cinderford and Cheltenham. They were taken through the 8 steps of IE and introduced to some of the techniques and strategies used in Intensive Engagement. Their next steps will be to begin to implement the training under the guidance and coaching of a Cohort Support Associate who will help them achieve the requisite level of competency.
