The Workshop for Education Professionals
ABOUT THE EDUCATION MASTER CLASS
The Education Master class is targeted at all staff working within education settings to enable them to better to understand the experiences of young people in and on the edge of care and how the complex multi agency systems around them can help and hinder.
The programme was designed following consultations with Head teachers, trained Ofsted inspectors, providers of initial teacher training trainee, newly qualified and experienced teaching staff. We found that there was limited and in some cases, no direct teaching about young people’s experiences and the world of social work on the teacher training programmes or in further professional development, despite a large and growing care and edge of care population. Our consultation in many local authorities and with many professionals highlights the importance of staff working in education settings developing their understanding.
The education master class is a one days training session and we can accommodate up to 35 delegates on each day. We welcome attendees from management, front line teaching, teaching support, pastoral and administration, to join us for a day of experiential learning.

WHAT YOUR SERVICE CAN EXPECT

In addition, professionals will identify clear working strategies which focus on incorporating the voices of looked after children within all decisions that affect them. The aim is to create a team/organisational consensus that, the voices of looked after children are significant in; measuring outcomes, determining positive impact, highlighting areas for development and building empowering relationships.
