Early Excellence CPD Series - Thursday 12th January 2023
Through these bespoke CPD sessions, you and your setting/school can stay connected with the national agenda and be fully briefed on all the latest developments in early years and beyond. Delegates will have the opportunity to engage with colleagues from other schools and settings, to share and access advice and support from the Early Excellence team.
The day will be split into two parts:
AM Session (09:30 - 12:00) National Update Session – for School Leaders, EYFS Leads and KS1 Leads
PM Session (13:00 - 15:30) EYFS Leaders Session
Cost: Free for SWIFT members schools (Full Day) /£100 per person for non-member schools (Full Day)
Tuesday 15th November | 09:30 - 11:30 | Countess Wear Community School
This workshop aims to teach adult facilitators the benefits of Lego therapy as an intervention for children on the autistic spectrum. Whilst understanding the theory of Lego therapy, there will be the opportunity for delegates to take part in a session which illustrates how Lego therapy differs from merely playing with Lego.
It will look at the outcomes for many young people (i.e. developing social skills such as turn taking, social negotiations and collaborative play). The workshop will also demonstrate the roles of those involved (including adults) and explains how this can potentially improve the social opportunities for young people.
Cost: £45 per person for SWIFT member schools | £75 per person for non-members.
