Introduction to Mindfulness

‘Mindfulness is a technique you can learn which involves making a special effort to notice what's happening in the present moment (in your mind, body and surroundings) – without judging anything’ (Mind, 2018).

The needs of practitioners working in children’s services are continually changing. Staff are working in a fast changing business climate with unprecedented challenges, tight finances and customers with increasing expectations. It is therefore important to provide opportunities for staff to develop their skills and knowledge in a wide range of areas to ensure success in delivering the ...

Achieving for Children Managers Induction: An Introduction

Managers have a huge role to play. “A single point improvement in management practices (rated on a five-point scale) is associated with the same increase in output as a 25% increase in the labour force or a 65% percent increase in invested capital.

At Achieving for Children we want to empower our new managers to understand the policies and procedures of the organisation. We want to enable managers to embed these principles into their management practice so that t ...
