Early Years Seminar #1

 

Becky Reffell, Strategic Lead for Early Years at Twynham Learning will be leading a series of six seminars over the course of AY 2021-22, each seminar with a separate  Early Years focus. These seminars are aimed at practitioners, aspirant leaders and established leaders alike and there is a completely open invitation to any local teachers to attend any event. The sessions are offered pro bono publico.

Session 1 - New to Year 1. To play or not to play?

This session will discuss the challenges Year 1 teachers’ face in supporting children’s transition from the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum to the National Curriculum. We will explore the pressures and expectations many teachers experience and will reflect pedagogy in the context of child development and quality first teaching.

BASIC Coaching Method

As qualified Trainers of Andy Buck’s BASIC Coaching Method, Two Rivers Institute are pleased to be able to offer the BASIC training course to middle and senior leaders to give them the clarity they need to coach with confidence.

Best-selling author and speaker Andy Buck has taken the latest thinking and research from the field of coaching and translated it into his tried-and-tested BASIC method, which is easy to learn and simple to apply whether you are supporting one of your colleagues to overcome a challenge, helping a member of your team to prioritise their tasks, or want to explore the concept of instructional coaching.

This programme is aimed at in-school coaches, Early Career Framework mentors, Lead Practitioners, Senior Leaders and support staff who are looking to develop coaching strategies to aid the growth of colleagues within the context of their role. 

During this two-day programme, senior and middle leaders will learn how to use a coaching approach in their everyday leadership and 1:1 conversations to promote the very best outcomes for pupils. We will look at the key principles and practice around coaching and how leaders can develop their coaching leadership style. The programme is very interactive and includes an opportunity for participants to practise coaching with time for reflection and feedback
