At certain times, most people find it difficult to communicate honestly, directly and openly with other people. This course will help you to understand different ways of relating to other people, how to identify assertive, passive and aggressive communication and how you can communicate more positively with others. Assertiveness involves being clear about what you feel, what you need and how it can be achieved. It allows you to engage respectfully with other people, whilst also respecting your own needs and ensures that you don't feel taken advantage of through setting appropriate professional and personal boundaries.
In this course we will look at rights and responsibilities in communication, communications styles, motivation and intent in communication and the impact of assertive and non-assertive behaviour. It will give you an opportunity to think about how you relate to others and changes you can make to communicate clearly and assertively.
Please ensure that you have completed the Assertiveness Skills e-module before attending this course.
This session is designed for workers who need to: Know about the introduction of the Signs of Safety framework in the council and partner agencies, and understand the basic concepts of Signs of Safety to assist them in their job role. This 3-hour session is relevant to employees who: - will not be using the Signs of Safety approach directly with families, but will see it in practice and need to understand its simplest form - need an introduction to the approach before they go on to do more specific role-relevant training. These half-day workshops are provided at no charge to South Glos Children’s Partnership partner agencies. As with all the local inter-agency courses though, a 'no show' on the day will result in a £30 per person 'penalty' fee to the agency.
If an employee needs to learn more about using the Signs of Safety model in their job role, they will also want to book themselves onto a 'Signs of Safety In Practice' workshop. These run regularly during afternoons on the same days as the morning 'awareness' workshops. Delegates need to book on those afternoon workshops separately.

Delegates must have already attended the Signs of Safety Awareness session before booking on this workshop. They can either have done that on an earlier date or by attending the morning of this course date.
This 'SoS In Practice' session offers the opportunity to explore and practice the model. It is aimed at the Safeguarding Lead within a single setting, team or organisation: employees actively involved in assessments, CP Conferences, Children in Need meetings, such as Designated CP Leads in Schools, relevant operational managers or practitioners in Early Years settings, Health and the voluntary sector. Following the course those practitioners will want to think about how they then ensure others in their work-setting get a basic awareness of Signs of Safety, for example via a short internal cascade meeting for key staff etc. These half-day workshops are provided at no charge to South Glos Children’s Partnership partner agencies. As with all the local inter-agency courses though, a 'no show' on the day will result in a £30 per person 'penalty' fee to the agency.

This course is aimed at Baby Room Practitioners who would like an opportunity to reflect and develop their practice with children 0-2 years old.
This course will facilitate practitioners to gain a deeper understanding of babies’ unique needs and encourage a reflective approach to how best to support them holistically.
Baby room practitioners play a key role in those very first experiences of life and early years provision. What should provision look and feel like, to make this the very best start for them? A range of thought-provoking activities, discussions, and links to theory, will inspire practitioners to reflect upon this question. Attendees will be encouraged to consider their own settings, celebrate what is working well and identify ways that they can improve practice exploring the following themes: attachment and the role of the key person, curriculum and pedagogy, enabling environments, activities and experiences.
Gap tasks will be provided to encourage deeper reflections and shared learning within teams, beyond the sessions.
Commitment to attend all sessions is required.
