More Dates for the Summer Term – 

Following the success of the Spring term sessions, HEP is pleased to share some more dates for the summer term. The training is offered free of charge to schools and numbers are limited. Please make sure you are able to attend both sessions of the training on consecutive weeks.

Training 1 – Thursday 22nd and Thursday 29th April 2021 -  4pm to 5.30pm

Training 2 – Wednesday 5th and Wednesday 12th May 2021 – 4pm to 5.30pm

Here’s what previous delegates thought:

“There was plenty of time for discussion which was valuable.”

“Learning points – strategies to help support, and ideas to consider, if children have been impacted. It allowed me to think about the issues more than before and indicators of the impact.”

This funded training, facilitated by AVA (Against Violence and Abuse), will look at Domestic Abuse theory and specifically how children are affected. Focus will be given to behavioural, emotional and cognitive effects on children, as well as the impact on parenting for both the abusive and the non-abusive parent.

You will:

  • Expand on existing knowledge of and experience in domestic violence work
  • Explore examples of good practice and projects
  • Learn about the impacts/indicators of domestic abuse on children
  • Learn about how to respond to disclosures from parents and children
  • Learn how schools can engage safely with parents
  • Learn how to undertake safety planning and risk assessment with children
  • Build confidence in challenging myths and stereotypes.

Meet the Expert – Art Workshop – "Good delivery and alternative resource options provided. There were clear explanations and questions to ask children were also provided."

Middle Leader Training – "Very inspiring leaders who answered all questions without making you feel at all silly. Loved it."

Deep Dive Subject Leader Training – "I so enjoyed the course. It made me realise how much I have to do in History, but so reassuring to have someone who knows what he is talking about!"

Develop your A Level Teaching – "Collaboration is a huge part of this project; CPD and teacher training works best when you’re doing it alongside colleagues. The 4 HEP principles make it clear to teachers what the bare bones of an excellent lesson look like."
