Welfare call E-PEP training for post-16 leaners

Date and time: Thursday 30 September 4pm-5pm
This session will provide an introduction to the Post-16 PEP including how to use the PEP portal, the quality assurance process, and useful hints and tips about the information needed within a Surrey PEP.

Post-16 Webinar (Session 1 of 4): Attachment, trauma and resilience

Date and time: Thursday 2 November 3pm to 4.45pm.
This is an opportunity to attend two EP-facilitated peer supervision sessions where designated teachers come together in a small group to problem-solve and reflect on specific situations related to the designated teacher role. Attendees of similar groups report that they value the ability to share and hear experiences of others in the same role as part of reflective, interactive exercises, and that this process supports their wellbeing.

Please note, participant numbers are strictly limited to maximise the opportunity for discussion. Participants should ensure they are able to attend both sessions prior to registering. This is session 1 of 2.

Post-16 Web Tutorial (Session 2 of 4): Secondary trauma – building resilience within the staff group

Date and time: Tuesday 2 November 3pm-5pm
Attachment, trauma and resilience. This webinar will introduce the foundations of the attachment-aware and trauma-informed knowledge base, and place this in the context of the adolescent and post-16 age groups, and particularly the most vulnerable within these groups. Toxic levels of stress can injure our brains, changing the way we think, feel and behave until we have recovered from the injuries. This can happen to anyone, and at times of significant social adversity, it will happen to many. This webinar will enable staff to reflect on the implications of attachment-aware and trauma-informed practice in their setting, and will help practitioners understand the importance of recognising their own vulnerability and resilience when supporting others to recover from toxic stress and trauma.
