Thanks for volunteering your services and skills. We can see that these are many and varied from your experiences shared via forms. We appreciate having your classroom, leadership and coaching and mentoring skills at our disposal and really value having you all on board to help us develop the programme. There are much bigger organisations than us trying to do the same thing and we are proud of what we have. Early indications are that the sessions are valued by staff who have taken part so far.
Common goals – just we are focusing on developing a programme AND a delivery method which is inspirational, aspirational but also practical and attainable.
Ice-breaker then taskTo reflect on methods of delivery to use (how to deliver, to familiarise with content of sessions, to explore options with colleagues)Initial priorities then group consensus with ideas
Hope these timescales are practical for you
Anne Hutchison manager, YMcB lead officer responsible for co-ordinating the programme, session arrangements (with schools and centre admin staff) and ongoing quality assurance, development and training. We are working on the admin procedures at the moment – excel might be best for all and glow sub-group would ensure privacy.
Give time to study sample. Rigorous protocol will minimise the evidence gathering for everyone concerned. All of the paperwork will be provided for you except for this – we are working on turning this into an excel document to make the admin much simpler. The log is the formal record of the session and should be as accurate as possible. It could be referred to as evidence by a wide range of professionals for a wide range of purposes.
May or may not be for you. Might be useful to record training session notes in – keep private or share as desired
Contact Malcolm if your ICT co-ordinator can’t help with any glow issues you may have
Will send a reminder email with these tasks and a direct link to glow. We have already given you all access to the group. It is closed to most at the moment
