New e-learning Course - The Role of CAMHS in the EHCP Process

The Council for Disabled Children (CDC) has recently published a new e-learning course called ‘The Role of CAMHS in the EHCP Process’.

This is a freely available, self-guided course. This training is aimed at adults with a role to play in the Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) system.

It includes topics such as the SEND system and legislative processes, importance of children and young people’s (CYP) voices, support on CAMHS advice, and roles and responsibilities in the SEND system regarding CAMHS.

This package of online training has been developed as part of the Delivering Better Outcomes Together programme, funded by the Department for Education and delivered in partnership by CDC, NDTi and Mott Macdonald. There are four lessons and each lesson will approximately take 30-60 minutes.

You can access the e-learning on the link below. Please ensure that you log in or create an account to access the e-learning.
