Keele Sessions (Monday 04th Feb 2019)

Yesterday saw the return of our trainees to Keele, with sessions on the ‘Tracking of Evidence’ and ‘Considering the Whole Child’.

The morning session was delivered by Dave Da Silva, who discussed the trainees logging and organising of their evidence and using this to drive their discussions with school-based mentors.  This allows the trainees to have a greater control in terms of their final grade and ensures that it is evidenced-based.

The afternoon session was also delivered by Dave, however this time he was joined by Andy Clifton.  The session discussed holistic education and areas such as PSHCE and SMSC, through to mental health and other factors surrounding every child’s education.
