Past Events
24 - 28 Jun

The aim of this course is to provide you with an introduction to the socio-ecological model of health and how it can be used as a framework for designing public health improvement interventions.

24 - 28 Jun

The goal of this intensive course is to provide an overview of relevant theoretical perspectives, taking the motivational approach as a starting point: how can we motivate individuals and organizations to adopt healthy behaviours and policies? In particular, the transition of theory into practice will receive substantial attention.

25 - 26 Jun

The theme of the conference is growing up online and it will explore potential risks and issues children may face online and ways in which professionals can help protect them.

27 Jun

Neglectful parenting is connected to a high proportion of children who are ton child protection registers, and there is an even larger overall number who suffer neglect, many of whom don’t figure in the statistics. We will be considering the complexity surrounding neglect – e.g. its nature and causes; the interaction between social and economic disadvantage and parental circumstances and characteristics. The training will consider the role that all practitioners in contact with children have in recognising neglect and the risk of drift in responding to the care needs of children. Participants will explore the damaging effects of neglect on children’s immediate and longer-term health and development, the importance of thorough assessment and planning, and effective intervention.

27 Jun

This year’s conference will feature influential and well-respected speakers with anticipated insights from the Welsh Government, Sport Wales, and leading figures involved in improving population health and tackling inactivity and skills shortages across workforce and communities.

School Farms Network Conference 2019

Royal Agricultural University, Cirencester.

Whether you are a school manager, senior leader, governor or practitioner (teachers and parents) interested in providing hands-on learning environments to enhance teaching and learning, raise attainment, improve attendance and attention, and/or support pupils to access and succeed in a land-based future (scientist, vet, combine harvest driver, and hundreds of other low and high skill jobs), then this conference is for you. Sessions will be both practical, topical, and an opportunity for you to learn and contribute at the same time.

28 Jun

The conference will assess the work of the Improving Outcomes for Children Ministerial Advisory Group - which was established to reduce the number of children taken into care with a focus on early intervention and improve outcomes for children already in care and care leavers. Delegates will consider Phase 2 of the Group’s workplan, which looks at professional practice, assessing services on the edge of care and aims to build stable places for those in care.

28 Jun

This short course will focus on supporting practitioners to recognise when children may be trying to tell them about what is happening in their lives. Using a rights based approach we will focus on how to keep the child at the centre of any concerns and to ensure that their voices are heard and acted upon. The course will present research messages about some of the difficulties children have when making disclosures of abuse and neglect to adults around them. Through the use of interactive exercises practitioners will explore children’s disclosure a process rather than an event. Delegates will consider the importance of ‘tuning in’ to children’s unspoken communication, paying careful attention to speech or behaviour that is worrying.
