This report describes the evaluation of POSTED (Postural Care in Education) Train the Trainer workshops. The workshops, delivered at Canterbury Christ Church University, Centre for Work Based Learning (2016-2017) are part of the dissemination of original research arising from an NIHR Research for Patient Benefit study. Funding to support the evaluation was available through a Higher Education Innovation Fund award from Canterbury Christ Church University (2016-17).

POSTED is a ‘Train the Trainer’ intervention. Children’s occupational therapists and physiotherapists attend a one day POSTED training workshop that equips them to deliver an evidence based training intervention to parents and teachers who manage the postural care needs of children at home and school. The training package builds the knowledge, confidence and skills of parents and carers in postural care. The training has been evaluated and found to be effective in increasing knowledge and confidence and reducing the concerns parents and teachers have about postural care for their child (Hotham et al 2017, Hotham et al 2015).
