We provide training, host knowledge sharing events, and foster an engaged and active learning community.

Our collective experience, since CORC was founded in 2002, brings together theoretical knowledge on outcome measures and relating this to the insights and expertise developed by practitioners working with children and young people on the ground.

Shared learning and networking

CORC helps to ensure that individuals, teams and whole organisations are empowered to use evidence in their pursuit of more effective child-centred support, services and systems. Our work to support this includes:

  • Training practitioners, supervisors, service managers and commissioners
  • Working together with service providers to build capacity amongst their whole workforce to use evidence to improve support
  • Hosting national and regional knowledge-sharing events including conferences, seminars and round tables
  • Fostering an engaged and active community of practitioners who are experts in the realities of implementing outcome measures on the ground


We improve professional practice through the dissemination of evidence-informed guidance. 

We translate research findings and new thinking to influence service transformation, national and local policy. We engage in national level dialogue with government, NHS, academic institutions and like-minded organisations.  

Training and Events

We have a schedule of Training and Events across each year, which supports professionals from across the health, education and social care sectors to build their knowledge and expertise in using outcome measures and data to inform service improvement. In addition to these, a number of training videos have been developed for organisations to inform and support clinicians and others working with child mental health.

Both CORC members and non-members around the world are invited to attend the CORC Members’ Forum, which provides a great opportunity for mental health professionals, service leads, commissioners and managers to come together and reflect on recent learning in the use of outcome measurement in child and adolescent mental health services. Forums include keynote speakers from across child mental health and wellbeing support services, as well as workshops, seminars and discussions on the development of routine outcome measurement and the CORC collaboration.

If you'd like to attend one of our CORC developed webinars or the annual CORC Forum, and arrange for your staff to do so too, please check the Training schedule for dates. 

Our regular CORC training webinar topics are:

  • Introduction to outcome measures
  • Choosing appropriate outcome measures for an intervention or service
  • Engaging young people in routine outcome monitoring
  • Improving your practice, using outcome measure tools
  • Use of measures in supervision
