The Creating an Outstanding Nurture Group training course is designed to improve participants’ understanding of nurture groups as well as how to set up and/or develop an existing nurture group. Time will be spent on the theory of nurture as well as the benefits of using strategies to identify children who will benefit from nurture interventions in school, as well ways to encourage children to build their confidence and learn positive behaviour. This course will also examine what makes an outstanding nurture group by unpicking what ‘good practice’ looks like and how to prepare for inspection.
