Code: WCTSA/22/0016 Secondary MFL Masterclass Series

SWIFT recognises the value of subject specific training and is offering subject masterclasses for secondary teachers, with key notes and delivery by experts in their field. The course is 6 sessions long and runs as twilight sessions after school. All of the sessions are being facilitated by Rachel Hawkes, co-director of the NCELP and Director of international Education and Research and SLE for languages at the CAM Academy Trust. Rachel is a former president of ALL, and is author of several languages text books. Each session shows the role and practice of a knowledge-rich curriculum

Session 1: Wednesday 28 September 3.30 - 5.00pm - The new GCSE and implications for teaching at KS2/3
Session 2: Tuesday 11 October 3.30 - 5.00pm - Phonics
Session 3: Thursday 10 November 3.30 - 5.00pm - Vocabulary
Session4: Wednesday 7 December 3.30 - 5.00pm - Explicit knowledge
Session 5: Wednesday 18 January 3.30 - 5.00pm - Use of the target language
Session 6: Tuesday 21 February 3.30 - 5.00pm - Quick wins for Year 11

Whilst there will be an element of reflection and teachers will benefit from attending the programme as a whole, each session will also be stand alone, allowing teachers to dip into the programme at various points. Each session will be recorded and therefore teachers who are unable to attend will still have access to the materials which can be shared back in school. If a school pays for the whole programme, any teacher from the school can attend the sessions and it does not have to be the same member of staff each time. This will allow schools to prioritise areas of development for different staff and/or tie in with appraisal targets.

Overview
PIPS training is aimed at all staff working in Primary Schools, Secondary Schools, Special Schools and Alternative Provisions.

It aims to support staff in developing a consistent, effective and acceptable team approach to managing behaviour, while, crucially, maintaining positive relationships and minimising risk for all.

Module 1: Prevention and De-escalation
This explores the key issues surrounding challenging behaviour and emphasises the importance of positive, preventative verbal and non-verbal de-escalation strategies.

This module includes work on:
- Values
- The Emotional Impact of Challenging Behaviour
- Help Protocol
- The Prevention Continuum
- Positive Prevention Strategies/Strategies to Avoid
- Systems and Structures in School
- Individual Behaviour Care Plans

Module 2: Passive Intervention and Prevention
This promotes the least intrusive, most caring handling strategies and explores a continuum of passive techniques designed to keep both pupils and staff as safe as possible based on “making movement safe” rather than “overpowering”.

This module includes:
- Legislation and Guidance
- Reporting and Recording
- Principles Underpinning Passive Intervention
- Moments of Crisis
- Personal Space
- Following Movement
- Guiding and Escorting
- Standing, Sitting, Kneeling 

Expected Outcomes from the Two Modules:
- experience and practice the skills of guiding, safe touch and holding
- explore how these acts of care combine with calming, diffusing and problem solving strategies
- experience passive intervention strategies designed to follow rather than force movement
- identify key elements for developing a consistent team approach to managing challenge
- improve knowledge and understanding around Risk Assessment
- increase awareness of the importance of recording and reporting, monitoring and evaluating
- provide a process of repair and reflection for both staff and children
- develop an increased sense of confidence at times of crisis
