Safeguarding is a huge topic with many categories of abuse, not all of these are necessarily relevant to the children in our care BUT they may be in environments where they are exposed and ultimately at risk so how do we manage this?

The Children’s Society provides a extensive network of frontline services and an army of volunteers work to tackle child poverty and neglect. They support families trapped in debt, support young carers and runaways and stop sexual exploitation. Training on current topics of safeguarding is a must for all professionals.

Early Years Practitioners and Childminders working with children aged 0 - 5.
What does this event cover

Ofsted inspectors will look for evidence that children display the characteristics of effective learning: their ability to play and explore, to actively learn and to create and think critically. Children will develop these with good teaching and a well-planned, stimulating environment. Think about your setting and ask yourself:

– How well engaged are children in their play and learning?

– Do all areas of the environment and curriculum stimulate children to find out and explore?

– How well motivated are they and what do you provide to help children to keep trying?

– How do you build children’s concentration?

– How do you help children to create and think critically?

– What opportunities do children have to express their own ideas rather than following ideas pre-set by adults?

– How do you encourage children to plan their own ways of doing things and to solve problems in their play and learning?

This course will support you to:

  • Think about the 3 aspects of the characteristics of effective learning: playing and exploring, active learning and creating and thinking critically and what they look like in practice
  • The role of the adult in supporting children to develop the characteristics of effective learning
  • Develop environments, routines and daily experiences that reflect the characteristics
    of effective learning.
