Update to this learning programme

As part of our organisational response to the COVID-19 virus, Children in Scotland has adapted our training and events programme to a digital webinar format for the foreseeable future.

Our webinar programme can be found here.

We're running this webinar as an abbreviated version of the full-day training course detailed below, due to the coronavirus outbreak. 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 team using this email
events@childreninscotland.org.uk

About this event

This training is designed for those who are responsible in some way for leading and managing others, and who would like to build on their effective communication and leadership style and skills. It will look at how attunement can support the functions of leadership and management and will explore team dynamics as well as managing effective, democratic meetings.  

This course is based on an empowerment model for leaders by building on their own unique and effective styles. 

Key learning: 

  • Understanding the key functions of leadership and management 
  • Gaining knowledge of the attunement principles for leaders and managers
  • Chairing attuned and effective meetings
  • Considering team dynamics and group work theory for developing teams
  • Sharing experience of managing conflicts and gaining support through attuned practices.

Facilitator bio

Sandra Strathie has worked across the UK and internationally as a trainer and on workforce development projects. She is a published author on attunement in practice for family work and educational development.

Sandra is interested in practical day to day methods that can be used in the workplace that professionals can utilise to better understand and develop satisfying relationships through attuned practices, as this leads to wellbeing not only for children, but in families, with staff and for ourselves.

Dealing with conflict and managing groups are areas of expertise for Sandra having previously worked as a tutor for the University of Dundee, as a Learning and Workforce Development Officer and as a consultant and mentor to several large voluntary organisations and local authorities.
