Using Developmental Observations - Advanced Practice

For APs keen to re-examine observations through a formative, and not performative, lens – this is a must. The module, designed and delivered by Professor Matt O’Leary and Joanne Miles, will help you explore expansive and practical ways of using observations developmentally. There will be a big focus on developing the coaching beliefs, behaviours and skills that underpin such an approach. Available in-house, dates to be agreed by organisation. Fee: £1,230 for 16 staff.
