• Background• The matrix & mapped examples• Categorised support mechanisms• Next steps
Background - staff questions and aims• Common questions – “Show me what’s possible” – “What do I need to do to make it work”?• Aims – Highlight transferrable exemplars and approaches – Balance between ownership and simplicity; • Somewhere between “unsupportive theoretical maps” and “restrictive… black boxes” – Create accessible, visual representation to support staff
