In a nurture group setting children’s needs are identified and carefully assessed, targets for improvement are determined and a cycle of assessment is established to support an improvement in both behavioural and learning targets.
This is the National Nurture Group Network three day accredited course for both teaching and non-teaching staff who are currently working in, or hoping to work in, a nurture group setting in the future, and is essential staff training for schools with nurture
groups who are seeking to achieve the National Nurture Group Network Quality Mark – a recommendation for all Bradford schools with nurture group provision.
You will learn about the origins of nurture groups and the theory that underpins them.
You will have an opportunity to develop a greater depth of understanding of Attachment Theory and of how developments in neuro-science have furthered our understanding of how a child’s social/emotional development might be delayed.
You will develop an understanding of how nurture group practice might be developed in your school/setting and how a nurture group would complement your existing provision around social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.
You will learn how to identify pupils who would benefit from nurture group provision, how to fully assess their needs, set targets for improvement and develop a cycle of assessment and target setting.
Cost of the course is £500. Where a subsequent applicants from the same school apply cost is £350.
