Training update 3
I am slowly working through a SEND diploma course with New Skills Academy. As it is currently Anti Bullying week, I am undertaking a series of courses through the Anti Bullying Alliance
As of today 15/11/2022 I have completed :-
Course 1 : What is Bullying
Course 2 : Bullying and the Law
Course 3: The 10 key principles
There are about 10+ short courses in total, so will work through at least one per day, or at least aim to do this.
All this training is really proving beneficial, and is leading to me finding lots of really useful resources, so hopefully I can use these in schools.
Training update 2
In an effort to learn new skills and keep existing skills updated. Over the past few days and since previous post on this, I have :-
- Completed Play Therapy Certificate
- Completed Lesson planning for Teachers
Both through New Skills Academy.
In an effort to learn new skills and keep existing skills updated. Over the past week I have:
- Finished studying for the Level 2 Teaching Assistant Diploma
- Completed Prevent, this was in order to refresh prior learning
- Completed Key stages of the National Curriculum course
- Completed Mental Health First Aid course
- Completed Mental Well-being in Children and Young people course
Mostly through the New Skills Academy. the prevent course is the official Home Office training.
I have also identified other learning, these course are now on my TO-DO list. I am now aiming to complete the SEND diploma. I really do need to be in a classroom to help with that, if nothing else context and support from employers and colleagues is essential.
As part of my on going commitment to safeguarding and prevent I have redone the UK Home office Prevent course
I last undertake this in 2020, so after completing the Level 2 Teaching Assistant Diploma, I am working through a few short courses then going on to the Level 2 SEND diploma
All of this should be very helpful finding work in schools, as it demonstrates a very strong commitment to learning, development of skills.
First Aid Course Certificate
The certificate, for the First Aid course that I attended on 1/6/2022 has now arrived electronically. A paper certificate will be sent to me too.
First Aid Course
As it is currently half term, this is no reason to discontinue training & learning.
Today, I am attending a First Aid course. This is a full day course, so will cover a lot of ground This is not just another item for my CV, but important skills updated, material leaned, and techniques updated to the latest best practice. Should open up more doors.
Introduction to Classroom management
I have now completed 'Introduction to Classroom management' with Prospero Teaching. So just catching up on uploading these.
Introduction to Tutoring
I have now completed 'Introduction to Tutoring' with Prospero Teaching.
FutureLearn course upgrades
I have two of the courses, that I completed with FutureLearn. The printed certificates should be on the way to me. These two courses are :-
- [Teaching Primary Science : Getting Started]
- [Teaching Primary Science : Chemistry]
Also identified lots of other courses,which demonstrate a commitment to keeping knowledge up to date. These will also be very useful while working as a TA within education settings.
Introduction to Teaching Phonics
I have now completed 'Introduction to Teaching Phonics' with Prospero Teaching.
I have some really good resource to help with this, as per a previous article so just need a chance to work in a school and develop further.
