Throughout the year we will be adding events to the website where specialists who will share their knowledge, advice on best practice and discuss key themes.
Spaces for Wellbeing
Spaces for Wellbeing programme; it is focused on staff wellbeing and is designed ‘to provide inspiration, not instruction', reflecting themes identified by education staff themselves. If you would like to be involved in the two planning sessions (4th Nov and 2nd Dec), please email us.
From January the programme will feature guests from teaching, social care, educational psychology, and academia to discuss solutions that support staff wellbeing.
Thursday 4th November 4.30-5.30pm
Thursday 2nd December 4.30-5.30pm
Supporting young children (0-5) who have been bereaved
This session looks at the development of young children’s understanding of death, how they may respond to a bereavement and touch upon some ways in which a bereaved young child can be supported.
Tuesday 9th November 4.00-5.00pm
This 2-hour session is for any member of staff in education settings and focuses on both individual and collective wellbeing. We will share feedback from recent research, explore how awareness of your body supports emotional wellbeing, share ideas on how you can improve your wellbeing and that of your colleagues, as well as identify individual goals and actions.
Thursday 11th November 4.00-5.00pm
Invisible Back Pack
The aim of this learning opportunity is to try and have a trauma-informed approach regarding the wider world of the young person and understand the baggage that they can carry around on their shoulders. They may have baggage due to adversity experienced over a long period of time or Covid-related: periods of lockdown and isolation.
Wednesday 17th November 4.30-5.30pm
The impact of bereavement on autistic children and young people
The aim of this session is to shed some light on how bereavement is understood and may be responded to by children and young people on the autistic spectrum and the impact it can have upon them. The session is informed by research with autistic people and information developed by organisations such as the National Autistic Society.
Thursday 25th November 4.00-5.00pm
