If you are a new rep or a rep who has not attended training in the last three years you should attend the Induction course in your region.
This course will aim to provide those working with young people with a solid understanding of mental health and wellbeing during the teenage years, alongside tools for supporting teenagers and young people.
Ensuring that every pupil in your class makes “rapid and sustained progress” can sometimes seem like an impossible task – especially when within your class there are pupils of widely differing abilities. How do you make sure “Clever Claire” is “stretched and challenged” while “Vulnerable Victor” is still struggling to copy down today’s date.
This one day workshop will provide plenty of insight as to how to set about further developing the talent around you to ensure win-win situations and that you “grow your own” talent for the future.
This interactive workshop offers an opportunity to develop your knowledge, awareness and understanding of eating disordered behaviour, from a young person’s perspective, and to look at what lies behind this emotive issue.

Research demonstrates a direct link between working memory difficulties and learners’ academic attainment.

Our first workshop will cover everything you should expect from Induction, what your rights and responsibilities are and how to ensure you successfully flourish as a new teacher.
The second workshop will look at school trips and what your responsibilities are in terms of planning, risk assessment, health & safety.
