Maybo achieves BILD re-accreditation

We’re pleased to announce the re-accreditation of our SAFERchildren and SAFERcare training programmes under the BILD Physical Intervention Accreditation Scheme (PIAS), marking over 10 years of continued accreditation for the Maybo curriculum by the British Institute of Learning Disabilities.

Whilst the scheme does not operate outside of the UK, the specialist BILD panel recognised the high standards maintained in Maybo training worldwide, commenting that they were “impressed by the arrangements that have been set up to access information specific to the different countries that the organisation operates in”.

Neil Warwick, Managing Director of Maybo in Australia and New Zealand, said “for 8 years we have been adhering to BILD standards in our training design and delivery in Australia and New Zealand.

“It is widely considered to be the highest international standard for the provision and commissioning of restraint-reduction focused physical intervention training and we will continue to use it as our benchmark until a similar scheme is established in Australia, which, with the advent of NDIS, there is a growing need for.”

 

What is the BILD accreditation scheme?

The well-respected BILD scheme is an evidence based process of external validation of the quality of training programmes covering reactive strategies, including de-escalation and physical interventions delivered to the health, social care and education sectors.

The fundamental process of accreditation is the provision of evidence that Maybo’s curriculum and trainers can prove adherence to all of the criteria in the 'BILD Code of Practice (2014) for minimising the use of restrictive physical interventions: planning developing and delivering training'.

Accreditation lasts for 3 years, after which the rigorous assessment process is repeated. Maybo has recently completed this process for the fourth time and has yet again been successful in evidencing that it meets or exceeds all of BILD’s extensive requirements.
