Following the successful launch of ‘Nurturing Approaches in Secondary Schools’ training materials at the Scottish Learning Festival, we have a number of National Training events coming up soon. Part 1, of a 4 Day Training, will be held in Glasgow on the 2nd and 3rd of November and Part 2 will be held in Glasgow on the 23rd and 24th of November. There will be a second event in Edinburgh with Part 1 being held on the 10th and 11th of November and Part 2 on the 15th and 16th of December. This training will cover all the key modules over a 4 day training period and will enable key staff to deliver it and embed it within a local authority or within their own school. Recommended participants at this training would include: Authority representatives with a key inclusion/support remit; school senior management; nurture teachers and Educational Psychologists. There will be an expectation that attendees with evaluate the impact of the training immediately after and 3 months after attending.
Places can be booked on through the Education Scotland Events Page
A number of local authorities have also embarked on their own bespoke training for Nurture including East Dunbartonshire and North Ayrshire. This can be negotiated as part of an authorities strategic focus with link officers and the RSW Team. There is also ongoing evaluation and support for a number of pilot schools who are taking this initiative forward and we look forward to sharing more on how this has been going, with you in the future.
