Encouraging the voice of the child during Engagement & Assessment (Cancelled)

This course was specifically developed to meet the findings from 'The voice of the child: learning lessons from serious case reviews a thematic report of Ofsted's evaluation of serious case reviews from 1 April to 30 September 2010’ (Ofsted, 2010).

This thematic report published by Ofsted ‘highlighted the importance of seeing, observing and hearing the child’ (The voice of the child: learning lessons from serious case reviews, 2010), which makes this course all the more valuable, relevant and unfortunately still current. Over the last few years empirical data from research still indicates t ...

English as an Additional Language (EAL) - supporting young children learning to talk in a bilingual environment

Speech Language and Communication skills (SLCs) are a fundamental part of a child’s early development as reflected in the Early Years Foundation curriculum. Children with EAL require a modified environment to support language learning, even beyond the point they have started using English. Those children who have SLC difficulties alongside EAL require a skilled workforce working together to identify difficulties early and embed support in the child’s everyday environment to ensure the best outcomes for the child.

The course will equip attendees with up-to-date knowledge and research tha ...

Story Sacks and Poetry Pockets

According to research by the National Literacy Trust, language and literacy skills have a huge impact on a child’s life outcomes. For example, children born into communities with the most serious literacy challenges have some of the lowest life expectancies in England. (Literacy and life expectancy report, February 2018).

The 2017 government report ‘Unlocking Talent, Fulfilling Potential’ acknowledges the ‘word gap’ – that exists in early years between children of different economic backgrounds.

Providing rich opportunities for stories, rhymes and poems is an essential element of high q ...
