Update - April 2020
As part of our organisationsal response to the COVID-19 crisis, Children in Scotland has adapted our training and events programme to a digital webinar format for the foreseeable future.
This list of webinars will be added to regularly so please do revisit the site to see what’s new.
We believe it is important that the sector continues to build resilient networks, share helpful resources and develop the skills our workforce needs to provide high-quality support to children and young people.
As such we will be rescheduling and/or changing the format of our upcoming events. Please note that our Learning and Events team will be in touch with everyone who has booked a place at an April-May event to confirm arrangements.
Our office is now closed and staff will be working from home – you can contact the Learning and Events team via firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 multi-awards winning 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.
