An online training course is provided for practitioners to develop their skills in critical self reflection. The framework includes an audit with statements broken down further into exemplifications that will guide staff to reflect against their existing practice. On completion of the audit you will upload key documents before submitting all for assessment. You will have an onsite assessment to validate practice against the statements and receive a report from NDNA.
