Edinburgh’s Growing Confidence Programme (www.growingconfidence.org.uk) has created 2 courses about children’s emotional development;
- Raising Children with Confidence is a 6 week programme for parents and carers
- Confident Staff, Confident children is an 8 week programme for staff
15 teachers and nursery nurses from Prestonpans Infant School are taking part in Confident Staff, Confident Children this term as part of the Continuous Professional Development. We’re enjoying some great learning together and for me, it’s really heartening to hear staff making the links from the theory to how they nurture and teach the children in their care.. But it’s not all about the children, there’s so much in the programme about knowing and taking care of ourselves too… and we’re learning a lot about each other. It’s looking like one of the most powerful CPD courses a staff team can do together… and we’re only about to start week 3.
