TRAINING/EVENTS

Advanced RSE Practitioner Programme [Session 3]

19th March 2024 | 12:30 - 15:30 | face-to-face | 1 year (4 x 3 hour sessions throughout the year) | Venue TBC

Course description

A year long programme consisting of three standalone sessions, and one reflection session. Participants will get the most out of the programme if they can attend all four sessions, although individual modules can be signed up for.

Two years into statutory RSE, we are keen to offer experienced practitioners space to reflect, and develop their knowledge, skills, and values. Sessions will be facilitated, and collaborative, with follow up tasks throughout the year set to encourage development. Participants will be highly encouraged to reflect, feedback, and bring themes in from previous sessions. Pre-session reading will be set, and whilst it isn’t compulsory, it will benefit all participants if they engage with the material.


Participants attending the full suite of sessions will develop and complete a CPD portfolio to take back into their school setting along with an Advanced RSE Practitioner award and training record.

MEET YOUR TRAINER

Sophie Collins

Sophie has a decade of experience working in schools, with training in Philosophy for Children, and expertise in informal education. In 2017, they moved to Manchester to start facilitating RSE lessons for a leading youth charity - six years on, and they still love the city and the subject. In that time, they have had the privilege of working with young people across the range of education settings from primaries through to college, in mainstream and SEND provisions, as well as in youth clubs and PRUs. They have delivered extensive RSE and PSHE training and coaching, striving to support educators with their skills, knowledge, and confidence. Sophie has worked in policy development and volunteered as a charity trustee; they’re as passionate about good governance as they are about pedagogy. Between 2020-2022, they completed a Master's in Education & Social Justice, with a focus on PSHE delivery. In June 2023, Sophie joined the Healthy Schools Team as PSHE lead in a maternity cover position and is enjoying putting their knowledge and skills to good use. In their free time, Sophie likes to watch, perform, and spend too much time thinking about, stand-up comedy. This year they hope to get a cat.
