  • share good practice examples of training around PBS and autism, and what’s happening already locally
  • identify gaps and opportunities to improve local PBS training and support
  • shape local workforce development around PBS

You’ll also explore how employers, commissioners and other support groups can build networks and implement their local transforming care plan.
