Upcoming CPD and resources in summer 2021
With the summer term now upon us, we wanted to highlight upcoming CPD and 1-1 support opportunities, as well as member resources to look forward to this term, all of which will help you meet both your pupils’ needs the needs and new statutory RSHE requirements.
We have a CPD packed summer term planned, including online courses preparing you for statutory Relationships Education/RSE and Health Education; training for those new to PSHE education, and for those charged with leading the subject; and training on programme planning, PSHE for pupils with SEND and much more.
These popular training sessions — including half-day and shorter, ‘twilight’ options — are designed and delivered by our team of Subject Specialists, and provide a wealth of resources and practical advice.
1:1 support in April and May
Our one-to-one online sessions give you the opportunity to meet with one of our Subject Specialists for advice and guidance as well as a ‘listening ear’ for your ideas and plans for PSHE education in your setting.
We’re offering our usual menu of session topics this half-term, with some bespoke options for SEND and independent settings.
1-1 support offered a personal approach to my current needs, allowing me to ask follow up questions where necessary and develop the discussion further.
Coming this term
This term’s new resources and guidance will include:
- ‘Careers education’ lesson plans and resources, years 9-10 — ‘opportunities, strengths and managing online presence’
Two new lesson plans and PowerPoints for year 9 and 10 helping students to highlight their personal strengths online, maintain a positive online presence, and understand how online reputation can help/hinder future career prospects.
