Person Centred Practice: Developing Outcomes and Using the Support Sequence

Event/course Code EDU 22/041
Event/course type Training course / Workshop
Event Introduction Excellent Personalised Support Planning results in clear person centred outcomes for children and young people and identifies creative ways to deliver them.

This programme consists of 4 x 2.5 sessions and will provide an introduction to person-centred approaches for children and young people receiving SEN Support and those with EHCP’s within the context of the Children and Families Act. How participants can contribute as a practitioner to person-centred planning and how to use tools and conversations to find out what is important to (and for) children/young people and what best support looks like.

Designed to support developing clear, specific outcomes and helping participants look at creative ways to achieve the outcome – that includes technology and community. It enables everyone involved in supporting children and young people to be able to understand and develop well-formed measurable person centred outcomes and explore a range of ways that these can be achieved via The Support Sequence. The programme delivers practical training and an introduction to tools and practices to achieve this.

The workshops are delivered on Zoom and the sessions are interactive, they will include the use of the chat function and breakout rooms with group conversation. The session is best accessed via an individual (one person per device) desktop PC or a laptop but a tablet or smartphone can also be used. Joining links will be emailed 24 hours prior to the start of the session.
Event Content This programme is aimed at anyone involved in supporting children and young people to understand and develop well-formed outcomes and explore a range of ways that these can be achieved through a process called The Support Sequence. The Support Sequence helps the child or young person and the people supporting them to think about different ways to arrange the support they need or make changes in their life. This includes what the child or young person can do themselves, using technology, aids and adaptations, support from family and friends, being part of what is happening in the community, as well as services and settings and paid support.

The programme will be delivered by Emily McArdle and Ben Rosamond, Associates with Helen Sanderson Associates.
