This course is for Early Years Preschools & Nurseries.
These briefings will run virtually with the offer of Preschools & Nurseries attending up to 6 sessions. The briefings will give up to date information on safeguarding legislation in practice. Each briefing has a specific focus.
These briefings were previously run in 2022 so no need to re attend these. Please note there is a maximum of 2 people attending from each setting.
This one day course aims to enable participants to gain an insight into deafness and to develop basic communication skills to use with deaf and hard of hearing people. This course will include exercises including a lip reading test and how much sign language can you learn in half an hour?
Staff who attend this "Understanding me, I have hearing loss" workshop will receive a GDA Deaf Awareness certificate.
Requirements for face-to-face training:
This informative day covers key themes relating to your service delivery and reputation. We introduce you to tools which enable simple strategic analysis. These tools will help you examine the different levels of power and interest people have to influence and shape your service and the value your team creates for the council, communities and customers. We consider the benefits of partnership working and using networks to enhance the work of the council and the value that comes from working with people.
We will use change theory to bring to life and make sense of how people respond to change and what they need from you as a manager. You will explore what happens psychologically when people experience or resist change so that you can adapt, pace change and provide support. We will then consider how your team can make the most effective use of resources available to enhance your service and value for money. This day offers simple tools, techniques and models to manage change well and provide the best customer service possible.
This day is supported with online material that will give participants additional content to focus on their main priorities in their service areas and well as content to return to at a later date.
Costs: External Delegates - £95
South Glos Council Employees - no charge
Trauma can arise from single or multiple events and can be experienced in numerous ways. Trauma can result in significant physical and mental impacts which in turn may have an effect on behaviour, on recovery and on a range of socioeconomic factors that are themselves a risk for poor physical and mental health. As we know from the research and work on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), the impact of trauma can have a significant and often lifelong impact; impacts can also be intergenerational.
The importance of a trauma informed and responsive approach has been elevated by the impacts of Covid-19 on children, young people and adults. Covid-19 has exposed significant inequality and had implications on the levels of need in relation to bereavement, financial hardship, mental health, domestic violence and complex safeguarding across the population. The further development of trauma informed approaches across the system is a key part of our recovery and response.
This training session is aimed at managers or staff in any sector who work with adults or children and would like to know more about trauma and it’s impacts on people and how to start thinking about supporting recovery for people who have experienced trauma. Delegates will be given the presentation so that they can deliver the awareness raising sessions in their own settings and teams. The training will also be supported by a resource manual. Once trained, delegates will be invited to join our growing Adversity and Trauma Ambassador Network. Existing Ambassadors can also attend.
This course is FREE of charge. If you would like to find out more about trauma informed work going on across South Glos and the Adversity and Trauma Ambassador Network, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Active engagement in these sessions is required so that the facilitator can ensure everyone’s emotional safety. Participants are encouraged to have a named support person they can contact if they need emotional support at any point during the training.
*This is a free 1 day course*
Please note - We will send you a Microsoft Teams invite/link a few days before the training.
This three-part course is for any Teaching Assistants or Support Staff working within the Early Years in a Reception or Nursery class who would like to develop their knowledge and understanding of the EYFS.
This three-part course will enable you to have the skills and knowledge needed to effectively support children within the EYFS.
Across the three sessions we will aim to explore the recent EYFS reforms, the 17 areas of learning, the Characteristics of Effective Teaching and Learning, the role of the adult, the environment, observations and assessment.
We would like this course to be responsive to the needs of all those attending so in addition to any of the agreed focuses, we will also aim to explore any questions, ideas or suggestions those attending may have within each of the sessions.
