Evaluating training
All practitioners attending the courses will be expected to complete training evaluation forms at the end of each course, before leaving the venue, in line with continuous improvement.  As part of our continued commitment to review training and whether it impacts on practice and multi-agency working, WSCB will also look to implement a 12 week post training feedback form which will be completed by both delegate and Line Manager.

How to access a WSCB course
All bookings for WSCB training courses are made using the learning platform, WILMA.  For further details how to access WILMA, including creating an account, please refer to section 3 of the WSCB Training Directory.  If you encounter difficulties or would like to speak to a member of the WSCB Business Support team, please contact 01926 742379.

Please be aware that applying for a course does not guarantee your place, you should in the first instance obtain the approval from your Line Manager.  In addition, all WSCB courses require a secondary authorisation from the WSCB which we automatically process, once you have applied for a course via WILMA.  This is to ensure that our courses have a balanced mix of multi-agencies in attendance.  You will receive a notification email generated by WILMA when your place has been confirmed.  

All Individuals, who are booked to attend a course, have had their place confirmed and who are then unable to attend, must cancel their booking as soon as they become aware of this.  If it is felt that there were unavoidable circumstances contributing to the non-attendance then the delegate’s manager should contact Jackie Kerby, Interagency Learning & Improvement Officer to discuss this.

WSCB ensures its training programmes are available for all agencies working with children, young people and families.  To ensure that these sessions are not misused and are prioritised, following confirmation of placement the charging policy has been amended to act as a protective measure.  Please note that if a colleague is able to attend the training in your place, charges will not apply.
