Following on from our 5 day Peer Work Course, you can now complete a Professional Development Award (PDA) in Mental Health Peer Support. The PDA recognises, develops and celebrates the skills of those currently working and volunteering in peer support roles and those wishing to get their first peer support role.
The course and PDA are both free to attend/complete and equips students with the knowledge, skills and values which are necessary to carry out this role with confidence.
Support is offered throughout the course and evidence of learning and its application to your practise is offered through written evidence.
