Humanities Coordinator Support SOUTH WALES (Cardiff)
Presenters: Don Trueman, Linzi Robinson,

Our original strategic course from Collective Learning provides an essential fundamental insight into how the Humanities AoLE is structured, what it comprises and how to make sense of these needs and requirements. A really useful first step.

The Humanities AoLE has been compared by some to a plate of cooked spaghetti; a bit of a tangled mess, tricky to deal with, but very tasty just the same. This follow-up course is aimed specifically at Humanities Coordinators, to furnish them with the knowledge, understanding, skills and confidence to lead, support and inspire their colleagues, and ensure that the potential tangle is actually blended into a healthy and nutritious dish.

NEW What are Play Therapies? SOUTH WALES (Cardiff)
Presenter: Angela Coates,

‘When play and safe, stable, nurturing relationships are missing in a child’s life, toxic stress can disrupt the development of executive function and the learning of prosocial behaviour; in the presence of childhood adversity, play becomes even more important’. https://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/142/3/e20182058

Play is a human right (UNCRC Article 31:The right to relax and play). The latest research in Neuroscience is clearly highlighting the importance of play for healthy brain development.

Are you interested in developing your awareness of the different play therapies available to pupils?
