About Learning & Skills

A key part of our approach, alongside Innovation Funding and Measuring Impact, is building learning and skills amongst individuals, families and those who have a role to play in supporting people who are disadvantaged to live full lives in their communities through the Genio Skills and Leadership Programme. The Genio Skills and Leadership Programme is made up of two elements i) delivering formal training in evidence-based practice and ii) facilitating collaborative learning and practice development.

Our skills and leadership building initiatives with stakeholders, across both elements, are focused on Supported Self-Directed Living (SSDL). SSDL occurs when individuals, with appropriate supports, are able to choose, pursue and achieve their aspirations for a good life to a similar extent to other people in their society.
