Training in action
During the project, Snook provided each of the 10 councils around the country with over 40 hours of structured practical training alongside one-to-one on-site mentoring. We built multidisciplinary teams to support projects from Newcastle to Southend, and looked at a broad range of challenges across adult social care.
Teams attended four off-site interactive and practical training workshops which covered the design process from research and synthesis to prototyping and testing. During these sessions participants were exposed to design principles and methods, then supported in putting these approaches into practice through their own transformation project. In between sessions, Snook delivered one-to-one mentoring back at the council sites to support ongoing project delivery through show-and-tells, director engagement sessions and general project planning.
