About our workshops and professional development
Working in an after school care or school holiday programme can be both a challenging and very rewarding role. Our workshops aim to help staff approach their work skillfully and with a good grounding in what really matters when working with children in an OSCAR setting.
Our straight-forward guidelines and tips are drawn from our long experience in advising OSCAR services. There are also frequent opportunities for discussion and questions, allowing participants to share their own insights and ideas.
Staff will leave a workshop feeling confident, inspired and more connected to the OSCAR sector and our profession. They also receive a certificate to recognise their professional development and take away useful written material.
“Trying to condense all the ideas we received …could not do justice to our 3 hour workshop ...there were many heads nodding knowingly, mumblings of acknowledgement, stories shared. It was a very familiar pattern of how much we really needed this.”
