Who are you going to train?
Some areas start with one professional group e.g. health visitors and gradually expand to cover all practitioners who work with children and families, from nursery nurses to firefighters. You can see what other areas have done in SA In Use where you can see videos and posters that practitioners have made about how they have implemented the Solihull Approach in their area and details of their research. There is also a book ‘Solihull Approach in Practice‘.

Who are going to be the cascade trainers?
Practitioners, even though they are busy with their normal jobs, often enjoy delivering Solihull Approach training, because it is well received by delegates and they can see that it makes a difference. They are likely to be anxious about being a trainer, however, which is why it is important to support them.
