What you will learn?  

Scott will take learners through his own personal experiences. Every move, every hardship, all the ups and all the downs from his perspective as a child and as an adult looking back.

By understanding Scott and his brother Ben's journeys it will give learners a better insight into how a journey though care and trauma can feel and what it is like in the shoes of a child in care. From this new level of understanding, learners can better understand the children they work for and think differently about the decisions they make.

What our learners say about us  

These sessions helped me gain a deeper understanding of child behaviour and development. From learning about the four different ages and social development stages to decoding behaviour triggers, this platform provided invaluable insights that have transformed my approach to managing behaviour.

I find this course to be an essential resource for enhancing communication and support strategies. The course on transitions and trauma highlighted the importance of forward planning, while the PACES communication toolkit has equipped me with practical tools to effectively engage with students. This platform truly empowers leaders to create positive learning environments.

This platform has been instrumental in empowering me as a virtual school leader. From understanding the theory behind behaviour to addressing age bias and involving children in decision-making, this platform offers comprehensive resources that have elevated my leadership skills. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to make a meaningful impact in the lives of their students
