Our training is flexible and will be tailored to your needs. We have experience of training staff and students in a wide variety of organisations and settings. Whether you want to know about equalities legislation, good practice, personalisation, self directed support or any other issue related to the rights of disabled children and young people – we provide training to meet your requirements.
We can support the development of policies, consideration of approaches and help to increase confidence to ensure positive experiences for all children and young people.
Our training enables a service to become more inclusive through knowledge and skills to ensure that a child is not just present, but really getting the best out of their involvement. It may be including children with autism or complex needs in a club or improving understanding of how a child who can't express their feelings in words can benefit from activities and enjoy their involvement whatever the setting. Most importantly it is about the child being able to contribute and make friends rather than just 'being there'.
Our programme is interactive, with group exercises, discussions and case studies, as well as providing useful and relevant information. Participants will take away ideas about how to implement change and strategies to deal with specific issues. Courses can be designed to address the particular needs of participants and address the issues currently being faced by your organisation.
Our considerable experience in delivering training and providing workshops includes organisations such as Carers Scotland, Children in Scotland, Scottish Women's Aid, YWCA, IRISS, Open University, Edinburgh City Council, Aberlour Child Care Trust, Scottish Borders Council and more. Qualifications include MPhil in Child Studies, MA in Social Work, CQSW and Post Graduate Qualification in Social Services Management (Leading to Deliver).
