Calling all Out of School Clubs
Jill Prescott, Childcare Development Worker, is hosting the last OOSC workshop this academic year and will be launching the new OOSC padlet. The workshop will focus on ideas requested from the previous Out of School Workshop back in 2016-2017.
The new padlet is full of inspiration, guidance materials, free training, resource ideas etc and contains information for OOSC management whether it be a committee, school or privately owned. It is also jam-packed with information for your staff team. The link to the fabulous new OOSC padlet will be shared with everyone who attends.
The 1st hour will focus on basic Coaching Skills and the necessary key skills involved in coaching and developing your staff team. This will be a fun interactive session.
The 2nd hour will explore different resources and activities which can be used when back in your setting.
You will also need to bring with you:
- Instructions for one game/activity which we can play in the evening.
- or Instructions for one craft idea and enough equipment to complete at least one of your craft ideas.
Your written instructions will be downloaded onto the padlet which will be shared with all attendees.
The evening will offer a great opportunity to acquire new ideas and inspiration and an opportunity to share practice and network with other providers from around the county.

Early Years Professional Development Programme and SLA 2018 – 2019
We are currently finalising our Early Years Professional Development Programme which we expect to publish on 25th June, so please do look out for this. We have reviewed and updated our programme based on research, data, survey feedback (thanks to all who participated), inspection outcomes, local need and priorities. We have worked hard within our allocated budget and pleased to introduce a range of new exciting and inspirational courses again this year of which some have been specifically designed for managers, childminders and schools. Additional resources are currently being developed for out of school clubs so there will be something for all.
The programme and SLA commences September and we are introducing a new payment system which we trust you will find helpful.
