Being a support worker is a central role in the delivery of Positive Behavioural Support (PBS). Through a support worker’s relationship with the person you support and their family/friends, you are able to improve the quality of life for the person and make it less likely that challenging behaviour will occur in the first place.
It is a complex role requiring a range of qualities, skills and knowledge. The PBS Competence Framework (2015) has already listed all of the things that you need to know and the things that you need to do to deliver best practice PBS. This resource will help you to map your own skills and knowledge against this and to track your development.
There is a guide on how to use this document at the beginning. We have also included the actual checklist as an editable word document too so you can download it to complete electronically.
