One of our key priority areas is leading and developing the children’s sector workforce. A key part of this is our learning and events programme, which is tailored to meet the specific needs of the workforce in Scotland. Our diverse programme is designed to strengthen your knowledge and practice.
Why choose Children in Scotland to support your CPD?
Our Learning & Events team has substantial experience of working with organisations to identify learning opportunities for staff that will:
· Strengthen their skills
· Provide an opportunity for them to reflect on their own practice
· Allow them to plan how to implement their learning in the workplace.
Our team can take care of everything, ranging from talking through your requirements to sourcing experienced trainers, ensuring the event is tailored to your needs, and providing an evaluation report afterwards.
No other training provider knows the sector like we do.
With more than 500 members, we are at the heart of the sector and can call on trainers with a huge range of backgrounds and expertise to deliver your training. All our trainers possess the qualities and skills we believe are vital to our success in delivering training of a consistently high standard.
We want you to arrive at our events with high expectations and leave inspired, with skills and understanding that help you make a positive difference to children’s lives.
