There are 2 sessions in the series that set out to give participants an understanding of the importance of physical activity, as well as provide them with skills for getting children of all abilities to take part in, and overcome the barriers to, getting active.
The second session looks further at the benefits of physical activity in terms of developing children’s skills and attributes, and looks in more detail at resources and activities promoting inclusion, self-awareness and goal-directed behaviour.
Both training sessions are designed to assist you in planning, delivering and review of physical activities you carry out with children in your service. The two training sessions will provide you with various resources and ideas to take back and develop with other staff members and of course the involvement of children.
What is the relevance of the training to staff working in Out of School Care?
- Help staff with planning, delivery and review of physical activities.
- Training resources will provide staff with fresh materials to use when working with children on a daily basis.
- Resources and materials will hopefully inspire staff to deliver a wide and more inclusive range of play activities and games that will benefit all within the service.
SOSCN can deliver this across Scotland and we have a partnership with the Care And Learning Alliance to train their staff to deliver this work in the Highlands.
