Looking for work

I am looking for employment. Ideally I would like something in schools or education, where I can help learners with their work, help build confidence, self esteem and help give them an outstanding education.

I am committed to Safeguarding and completed a course earlier this year along with other #CPD which is applicable to working in schools or just employment generally. I would hope that what I have undertaken demonstrates a commitment to this, and I would expect any employer to be fully committed to safeguarding, equality and CPD.

I am currently running a Code Club at Paignton Library but will also be involved with the Paignton Library STEM Group.

I have also created a STEM display at the library

So while I am looking for employment, I am far from not doing anything and I am trying to get involved with various events such as the upcoming Emacs Conference and have updated the poster that I created last year so this is now part of the official promotional materials.

I am also helping with Libreplanet

Safeguarding Children

I have now completed 'Safeguarding children' with e-learning at work. Another really good course, and essential for anyone working with children. I also e-mailed them to give them some feedback on the course content.

I have included links to some of the key statutory documents in this post.

During this course you will hear many facts, figures and details surrounding the risk to children, the types of abuse suffered, how to recognise the signs of abuse and key safeguarding legislations put in place to minimise the abuse of children. Once you are able to recognise the signs of possible abuse, and know the steps you should take if you suspect it you will be better able to protect the children in your care.

The course covers the following modules:

    Introduction to Safeguarding Children
    Types of Abuse, who may carry it out and why children may not tell
    How to Recognise the Signs of Abuse
    What to do if you suspect a child is being
    Safeguarding Legislation

Sexual Harassment in the work place

Just completed another course with e-learning at work. This a really useful course, a lot to take in, but an essential topic. I would encourage EVERYONE to undertake this training, then hold your employer to account. In the light of everyone's invited I would encourage Parent / Guardians to do the same, so that schools can be held to account too.

The third case study is very disturbing for another reason. Nothing was mentioned about those staff members (inc the headteacher) being struck off from teaching given what happened. You need to do the course to find out more.

This course will start by defining sexual harassment and explaining how protection comes from both employment law and criminal law. You'll see from workplace statistics how widespread and serious the problem is, and how the management response to concerns raised is often poor or non-existent. It also addresses how allegations should be handled, explains the importance of having clear and robust policies and the role line managers tend to take when it comes to dealing with these situations. The course also covers investigation from the employer's perspective, the role of employment tribunals, and concludes with some case studies that will give further insight into what constitutes harassment and the outcome of cases where the businesses did not act appropriately to deal with this behaviour.
