RAM Jam whiteThe DPC would like to invite members to a ‘RAM Jam’ workshop. This workshop will allow you to get started and make progress with the DPC’s Rapid Assessment Model (RAM). We will also hear from DPC members who have used RAM as they share what they have learned from the experience.

The workshop will include an overview of the RAM and details of how to use it. There will be time for you to work on your own on your DPC RAM assessment, and DPC staff will be available to answer any questions that arise. We will also make use of Mentimeter to carry out some anonymous benchmarking within the workshop. Members can choose to attend the whole workshop or can drop in and out as appropriate.

We will encourage all members to complete and submit their RAM assessments to the DPC. Member assessments are used to inform the DPC programme and to better understand where the membership as a whole may require additional support. We also share anonymised and aggregated RAM data with the DPC membership. DPC staff are available for any RAM follow-up questions after the workshop.

Who should come?

This workshop is open to DPC Members. It is suitable for those who have not yet completed and submitted a DPC RAM assessment, and also those who have who would like to share and learn from others’ experiences. No prior knowledge of DPC RAM is required. Members who have started working on a RAM assessment but need further advice and guidance in order to complete it are very welcome to drop in and out as appropriate.
