'Planning for Learning' events in Wales

Looking for ideas on how to demonstrate that you plan for children’s learning under the New Inspection Framework?

Interested in finding out more about how you can use the Foundation Phase Profile to plan and record children’s learning and development?

We would like to invite all members and registered childminders in Wales to free PACEY Cymru training events, supported by Welsh Government funding, on the theme of `Planning for Learning’.   Two events will take place on Saturday, 17 September 2016 9.30am – 1pm, one in Colwyn Bay, North Wales and one in Neath , South Wales. Refreshments are provided for all attendees.

What will the training include?

•          ‘Planning for Learning’ workshop

•          ‘Planning into Practice’ – interactive ideas stations

•          Celebrating excellence

CSSIW’s new Inspection Framework has an increased focus on observing children and planning for their learning and development.  During the event we will explore the Foundation Phase Profile as a tool to support planning for and recording children’s learning and development, and reflect on the New Inspection Framework.  There will be a range of interactive ideas stations to consider planning for learning along different themes, providing the opportunity to reflect on your practice and share ideas with others.

Attendance will count towards your Continuous Professional Development (CPD) hours.

How do I book on and how much does it cost?

Information on the course date and locations are listed below. This event is free for PACEY Members and all registered childminders in Wales (a small deposit of £15 will be required at booking, further information on this can be found below).  For non-members who are working in childcare and early years sector the cost is £15 per person (non-refundable).
