This course is suitable for all those working with young children, either in a school setting or early years environment.
This is a professional development opportunity which offers you the chance to think deeply about children’s emotional well-being and their engagement in learning. You will spend time considering video vignettes of young children and applying the theory to this video material, alongside colleagues on the course. You will engage in a professional dialogue about children’s emotional lives and their cognition, recognising when deep level learning is taking place. You will hone your skills in considering the environment that you are offering to children, and make considerations about how to improve it.
Through undertaking this course practitioners will have a deeper understanding of the impact of high levels of well-being and involvement on children’s engagement in learning. They will easily be able to consider the environment in relation to children’s engagement, and make changes where necessary. They will have theoretical frameworks to share with parents, impacting on home learning as well as learning in the school or setting.
‘Introduced recently to nursery and is already very valuable for staff discussion about individual children as well as provision. Also great to look at snapshots – great professional discussion. Next steps to introduce to parents – will help parents see and value their child’s quality learning’.
‘Extremely useful to support self regulation and share/develop strategies and language of learning’.
This is a one day professional development course.
