STAFF TRAINING AND COURSES

VISIT TO GOGERDDAN NURSERY

We have organised a visit for a few members of our staff to visit Gogerddan Nursery which is based in Aberystwyth to work with staff and to share and experience excellent practice methods and procedures as part of our staff’s own development.  Gogerddan Nursery has won many awards for the excellent service and care it provides and this will be an excellent opportunity for 3 members of our staff to learn and develop new skills by working alongside experienced nursery practioners.

 

MANDATORY TRAINING

We have booked staff due for refresher courses onto Food Hygiene level 2, First Aid level 3 and Child Protection courses.

LEVEL 3 AND 5 IN CHILDCARE

Jason and Karen have started their Level 3 in Childcare.  Once they have completed this course they will move on to their Level 5.  Vicki Ayres signed up last month to do her Level 5.  Leanne is half way through her Level 5 in Management and Childcare.  Good Luck!

DEVELOPMENTAL COURSES

Staff have requested to attend additional courses to help enhance their knowledge of working with children.  We have signed up staff to Postive Behaviour Management, Autism and the Early Years, Fire Safety and Human Resources courses.

WELSH WORKSHOPS

Karen is attending a Welsh Course held by Rhys, from Mudiad Meithrin, in September.  Rhys has kindly agreed to support Karen in delivering Welsh workshops in October to teach Welsh to the staff in order to develop their own welsh language skills and then teach Welsh to the children.

LEVEL 3 IN PLAYWORK

Roxy and Natalie have been attending, on a weekly basis, a year long course in Level 3 in Playwork.  Both they and the children are really benefitting from this great course in our Breakfast and After School / Holiday Club.
