About this event
WCF EPS are excited to be able to offer ELSA training and supervision for practitioners working in educational settings across Worcestershire.

ELSA stands for Emotional Literacy Support Assistant. ELSAs are school support staff (teaching assistants and/or learning mentors) who have undergone the 'ELSA' programme of training by Educational Psychologists to support the emotional development of children and young people in schools.

The ELSA programme has been widely adopted as an evidence-based early intervention for children and young people in over 100 local authorities in the UK. ELSAs attend training days and group supervision sessions led by the Educational Psychology Service. They will be trained to plan and deliver individualised programmes of support for children to develop their emotional literacy, including:
• Awareness of own and other people's emotions
• Management of stress, grief, anger, and conflict
• Development of social interaction skills
• Promotion of a realistic self-concept and self-esteem

ELSAs will also be able to plan and deliver support to small groups of children to support the development of social and friendship skills. ELSA provision within schools can help lower exclusion rates, promote emotional well-being, and improve academic outcomes.

Since most ELSAs are likely to have had no specific psychological training beyond those insights provided through initial ELSA training, it is essential for them to receive regular on-going support that develops their knowledge and understanding in these areas. Without this they may be left floundering as they seek to support children with a complex range of needs. There is also a risk of them being asked to deal with issues beyond their level of competence which in reality require much more specialist professional input. Therefore, to practice as an ELSA they must receive regular supervision which is provided by an Educational Psychologist. ELSAs are eligible to join supervision sessions from the term after they complete their training. Schools must let us know if their ELSA leaves his/her post to avoid paying the continuous yearly charge. No refunds will be made for supervision if ELSAs leave during the year.

The line-manager or headteacher will be required to join their ELSA(s) for part of Day 1. This requirement is important to help them understand the parameters of the ELSA role and the line-manager’s role in supporting ELSAs.

This course is focussed to Secondary Schools - if you work in a middle school, please choose the most appropriate course based upon the year group you work with.
