Code: SGC/23/0304 Supporting People with Dementia using Positive Approaches (EVENT FULL) (Cancelled)

This training session is appropriate for everyone who works in social care settings who interact, communicate with and support people who have dementia.

This day is an updated version of the course entitled, ‘Connecting with People with Dementia.’ The facilitators believe people who have completed the previous course would benefit from attending this course too, as it has been adapted to incorporate Positive Approaches to CareTM. The core principle of PACTM is that as carers, we need to change our approach in order to understand how it feels to be living with the challenges and learn techniques to support people in a person centred way.

The day introduces Positive Approaches to CareTM and will enable participants to develop their understanding and skills in order to provide person centred support to people who have dementia.

The standard charge for this course is £103.50 per day. Please refer to our Course Charges on the Home page for information on discounts and exemptions

Code: SGC/23/0169 Woodwork in the Early Years

Early Years Practitioners working in Early Years Settings – reception staff.

Only 1 person per setting can attend.

With woodwork children can develop their learning at their own pace and work through their own challenges. Once they have mastered basic skills, they move into open-ended exploration - tinkering, exploring possibilities and then they start making unique creations.

Peter Moorhouse remarks that “It is more important than ever for the new generation to be able to think creatively and develop problem-solving skills. Woodwork exercises such skills as children make their own choices and learn through trial and error. It sparks creative thinking and imagination, qualities that are at least as important in our changing world as the practical skills gained.”

This will be a practical session and we will work both inside and outside regardless of the weather so dress appropriately.

Tea and coffee will be provided but please bring your own lunch.
