Code: BH/22/0577 Anti Racism: Early Years Action: Modules 2,3 & 4 (EVENT FULL)

This is a fabulous opportunity for Early Years practitioners to understand how to create an Anti-Racist culture within our Early Years settings.

The Black Lives Matter movement and race riots have put a spotlight on systemic inequalities, race, racism and the direct treatment of Black people in the UK.

In this course, we consider how all this feeds into education, in particular Early Years education. Together, we explore how to respond to questions and comments like "why is your skin pink and my skin’s brown?" "How can we celebrate black history month in an Anti-Racist way?"

In this exciting program, we consider how to implement practical changes to our educational policies, practices and environments. We look at how to demonstrate Anti-Racist action and, we discuss whether this can be aligned with ideas and concepts like inclusion, child development and OFSTED's idea of cultural capital.

Please note that programme is suitable for Early Years Managers and leaders who are responsible for implementing changes to your day to day practices.

Code: BH/22/0575 Meeting the Needs of Ethnically Minoritised Children (for Foster Carers)

The session will cover issues of race, identity, marginalization and discrimination. We will consider associated terminology, discuss strategies to challenge racism and explore the implications of potentially damaging attitudes, language and behaviours. 

We will watch a film which offers a young person's perspective and use this to consider how we can support BAME young people in developing a positive sense of identity. Case studies (which you will have a chance to look at before the session) will be used to bring together our deliberations. They will help in focussing our strategies of how we can work collectively towards better meeting the needs of BAME children.

Code: BH/22/0650 Overcoming Overwhelm online - 2 sessions (Zoom)

Overwhelm – a personal plan

What is overwhelm and what causes it?

Being overwhelmed occurs when there is too much of something going on – we feel
like we’re drowning or being buried.

This can happen for a number of reasons, but a feeling of too many things to do, too
much work, too much work pressure and too many deadlines can be a major

Feeling overwhelmed has repercussions on the whole of our life. It can make us feel
tired, interfere with our sleep and make it difficult for us to think rationally. These
negative emotions can make it more difficult for your body to fight off infections and
can have a physical effect with fatigue, neck and upper-back pain, for example.
Add all this together and it can affect every area of life, impacting our social lives and
relationships on top of the work challenges.

All these feelings distract us from being effective and efficient and that, in turn, leads
to lowered ‘performance’ and sets up a vicious cycle dragging us further down.
This can lead to procrastination (making things worse!) and creative avoidance –
doing things that don’t really matter to distract ourselves or things that give us
pleasure, putting off the real work further.

Online sessions via zoom of two x 2 hours (you will need to attend both sessions)

This four hour session offers a practical and experiential opportunity to understand,
appreciate and acknowledge that different situations trigger people in different ways.

What one person will find ‘easy’ another may find ‘challenging’ and adding to levels
of stress.

Once we have an understanding of our personal ‘triggers’ we are then in a better
position to find the solutions to manage our stress, our workloads, and find effective
ways that enable us to feel more ‘in control’.
