About this event
As part of the DfE funded Wellbeing for Education Recovery, Worcestershire Children’s First (WCF) Educational Psychology Service (EPS) are offering a free 7 week practical course for practitioners who work with and support children and young people at risk of or experiencing Emotionally-Based School Avoidance (EBSA).

This course is specifically for those working with years 5 to 11 (upper primary / secondary). The measures that we will cover do not go down to that age range (reception to year 4) and many of the interventions won’t be appropriate they are more language based

The course will begin with an initial awareness raising session that should be attended by both the practitioner delivering interventions (e.g. teaching assistant, learning mentor) and a member of staff whose responsibility it is to co-ordinate interventions and support for CYP in their setting (e.g. SENCO, Designated Mental Health Lead). The purpose of this session is to provide an overview of the latest research on EBSA and outline the next 6 sessions so that there is a shared understanding of what will be covered.

The next six sessions are more practically based and are intended for practitioners that directly deliver interventions (e.g. teaching assistant, learning mentor, family support worker).

This course will be delivered by a range of Educational and Trainee Educational Psychologists from WCF EPS.

The course is mainly aimed at those working with years 5 to 11. The measures that we will cover do not go down to reception to year 4 and many of the interventions won’t be appropriate as they are more language based

Free to attend

About this event
Audience – Headteachers/members of SLT/School Improvement advisers who visit EYFS provision as part of the monitoring process

Focus: - Feeling informed about and judging the quality of Early learning experiences and opportunities across a year and having the confidence to talk about the impact of Early Learning in your school.

Ask yourself -Do you currently judge the quality of your EYFS learning just by what you see in a short lesson observation on your visit to the classroom or by drawing on what you already know about the evolving story, the current chapter, that goes with each unique child that has been shared through conversation and professional judgements of the EYFS staff? No excel spread sheet in sight!

During the morning we will take the four principles of Early Years from the new framework and use them to match your knowledge of the children in your school to why it is important to engage in a narrative with the teacher during your visit to their Early years environment to understand what they are doing at that time and with whom.

Often visitors to Early Years want to judge the quality of the Early Years by a ‘lesson observation’, when actually the true weight of any judgement is in the provision at that time and subsequently the judgements and observations made by staff, who are truly tuned into each child.

Headteachers and senior leaders/advisers will hopefully be able to gain a greater understanding of the new EYFS curriculum (2021) across this year and the Characteristics of effective teaching and learning to help them inform any observations made. In order to do this, there needs to be a good knowledge of the way learning is structured and facilitated through a play-based approach for each child.

About this event
New Governor Induction Training comprises three training sessions and each session develops one of the three modules of the National Training Programme for Governors.
The first module looks at the process of governance, the overall role and responsibility of governing bodies and focuses on the way the governing body determines the strategic direction of the school.
The second module clarifies how governors challenge and support the school by being a 'critical friend'. It focuses on the monitoring and evaluation aspect of the governor's role.
The third module explores how the governing body, as the body with overall responsibility for the school, holds the school to account and is itself accountable to the parents and wider community for its work.

About this event
WCF Educational Psychology service are offering professional group supervision sessions for school-based DSLs, delivered virtually via MS Teams, with 6 sessions in total one each half term.

What is group supervision?
Group supervision sessions provide support, guidance and the opportunity for reflection within your professional role as a DSL. Supervision with an educational psychologist offers a space for targeted reflection and support processing work-based situations and events. It offers the opportunity to de-brief and think constructively about different areas of the role and using group process facilitation, it supports the attendees to develop solutions and actions that can be applied to specific casework.

Supervision supports the development of effective practice, personal self-growth and professional development in the workplace.

Cost: £225 + VAT per delegate
