Code: EYFS146 EYFS : Planning for Effective Transition from Reception to Year 1

'Transition is a process and not an event'; this course provides the opportunity for reception and year 1 teachers to work together to plan an effective transition experience for reception children into year 1. The course will be partly led by the inspiring story-teller Kevin Graal who will be working with delegates to use storytelling as a vehicle for an effective transition.

The course requires both delegates to attend a whole day training in term 4, a twilight session in term 6 and a half-day session for the year one teacher in term 1. Throughout the course delegates will explore what constitutes effective transition, have the opportunity to draft a transition policy and make initial plans for a transition project for the current cohort.

Code: LSC765 ESSCP: Improving Outcomes For Children in Care (Virtual) (EVENT FULL)

This Pan Sussex multi-agency training opportunity is aimed at all practitioners and carers working or caring for looked after children or care leavers. This includes foster carers, residential workers, GPs, Health Visitors, School Nurses, Independent Reviewing Officers and Supervising Social Workers.

Messages from practice and research highlights that children and adults who are care experienced have higher rates of physical, emotional, social, and educational need, and are more likely to experience homelessness, teenage pregnancy, prison and problems with their mental and emotional health. They are also more likely to die younger. The majority of children who enter care have suffered significant harm, neglect and trauma, and some are children who have travelled alone from their country of origin to seek asylum in UK.

The training will be delivered by trainers from Health and Children's Services, as live interactive classroom training, delivered through Microsoft Teams.
