This article, the fourth in a series describing the Hampshire person-centred planning team’s attempts to build a sustainable person-centred culture, describes the ‘training the trainers’ course, run by the team. Mandy Johnson and colleagues discuss how the course was developed, to meet the needs of the diverse group of adult learners

Early on in the project, we decided to help a group of people to develop their skills in training others about person-centred planning (PCP). Initially the need for this had arisen from people who had been part of a research project on person-centred planning in the New Forest area. Some service users and family carers had begun to work as speakers, telling their stories about how person-centred planning had worked for them. Some of these people had then wanted to improve their skills in presenting and training, and we soon found that there were plenty of other people in Hampshire who were interested in developing their skills.
