CPD Sessions in September

26/09/2021 30/09/2021

A number of CPD sessions are scheduled for the last week of every month. 

SSCE Cymru is offering all schools in Wales, an opportunity to participate in one of our monthly CPD sessions timetabled during the last week of each month.

The two-hour session includes lots of opportunities for discussion, feedback and questions around the experiences of Service children and actions the school can take to embed good practice.

"The whole course was fantastic. I never really thought about the impact on Service children so it was a real eye opener."

"All elements were beneficial, particularly the definition of military terms and structures to understand where my families in school fit into this and strategies to support the children. It brought the importance to the forefront of my mind."

"Very well presented by someone who was clearly passionate and knowledgeable about Service children. Thank you."
