An important new course to explore the needs of looked after children, the statutory responsibilities of the school and practical ways to ensure that these are met effectively.
This training is for virtual school heads and other virtual school staff, local authority LAC coordinators and vulnerable children managers, designated teachers and learning support staff and other interested practitioners. It is appropriate for national bodies and local authorities and as school inset. Anne tailors all her courses to local circumstances and learner needs.
Anne's LAC courses are packed with up-to-date facts, figures and research about best practice. There are opportunities throughout to discuss effective provision and identify plans for improvements. Delegates receive comprehensive information packs to complement the training.
Expected learning outcomes:
So good we will book Anne for next term.
It was very very useful to share best practice, thoughts, feelings and theory. Very practical and will certainly make a difference to the provision for LAC children.
High quality training we can use to build capacity in schools. A breath of fresh air!
Lots of information that was up to date and relevant. Came away with an action plan to undertake within my school. Improved my confidence that what I have been doing is correct.
Very informative and relevant to needs. Very good trainer.
Really enjoyable, interesting day. Interesting discussions, helpful information. Trainer very knowledgeable in subject. Plenty of information shared - great networking.
I want all the designated teachers in my authority to have this training.
The chance to speak to other professionals working in the area of LAC has been invaluable. It was great to listen to their viewpoints which I can consider when developing my role in the school.
Relevant and structured. Good opportunities for group discussion and feedback.
Brilliant that a small group setting allowed for a lot of questions and speaking to colleagues and trainer about specific needs or things I needed clarifying. Loved it.
Very useful and informative. Lots to take away and embed within my own school.
Very interactive. Lots of examples and room for sharing good practice. Anne was very knowledgeable but also an excellent facilitator of discussion. Lots to take home.
Great for learning mentors.
Useful insight into other LA procedures and systems. Also into how schools help looked after children.
Anne was very good and very welcoming.
I liked that there was a lot of discussions and questions in the sessions. It helped focus the tasks and enabled a great deal of information sharing. Not death by powerpoint which can be usual in training sessions.
