You will be based within our Recovery and  Wellbeing college giving great opportunities to learn from each other to deliver high-quality training. The most crucial aspect is co-delivery on an equal footing with subject experts.

The role will involve working closely with a team of psychological therapists, other health professionals, and volunteers to deliver KUF. In addition, the post holder will work with volunteers and staff to plan and provide the training across all stakeholders working within the KUF National Improvement Programme.
