County Durham PCT opts for blended learning

Epic has been awarded a contract by County Durham Primary Care Trust (PCT) to provide a package of workshops and e-learning to help raise awareness of mental health issues in the workplace.

County Durham PCT wanted a partner to provide a training and support programme with the aim of improving access to employment for Wear Valley residents with mental health difficulties.

The PCT chose Epic, in conjunction with their partner, The Professional Training and Development Consultancy (PTDC), to provide a programme that combines face-to-face and e-learning.

As part of the solution, Epic says it will be providing an e-toolkit, available to all employers and service users, as well as a series of face-to-face workshops scheduled to be delivered in the local community. The programme will be marketed using local radio and email campaigns.

Epic says the e-toolkit will combine a range of learning devices and tools to provide a structured learning experience. The company adds that the toolkit has the potential to act as 'dip in' refresher learning, a reference tool and a performance support tool.

Pat Rich, mental health development worker for County Durham PCT said: "We are absolutely delighted to be working with Epic and PTDC on this groundbreaking project. Epic impressed us with their obvious support and understanding for meeting the objectives. We are hoping this programme will make a huge difference to the residents in Wear Valley, and help tackle the negativity surrounding mental health in the workplace."
