Open Space Event - Aston Villa Football Club
28 June 2011

We attended the Open Space Event on Wednesday, 8th July at Aston Villa Football Club, which focused on children with complex needs.  The event was well worth our attendance with nearly 300 delegates including parents and carers, young people, representatives from Further Education, voluntary organisations, special schools and children’s centres. There was a great deal of interest shown in the Leading Aspect Award.

Young Verifier Training
28 June 2011

Pupils from a range of schools received their first day's training on Monday, 27th June at Lightwoods Primary School, Oldbury.  The day was a great success with the children eagerly awaiting their second day's training in the Autumn Term. 

Interest in this event has been phenomenal, resulting in the organisation of a second event due to take place in Oxfordshire.  If you are interested, please do contact us, as further events will be organised on demand. These are exciting times! 

YOUNG PEOPLE AS VERIFIER
18 May 2011

Dear Headteacher

Young People as Verifiers

As you are aware the Leading Aspect Award is a national Award which accredits high quality education provision through a rigorous quality assured self-evaluation framework.

We would like to work with you and your School Council to train young people as verifiers and enclose a flyer inviting pupils to apply.

The benefits for the school are:

§ You will have young people who can support you in your own self-evaluation process.
§ The young people will be able to bring back to your school practice they see in other education settings.
§ Pupils will further develop leadership, confidence and communication skills in undertaking this role.

Once training has been completed £250 will be paid for any verification visits undertaken. This could be used by your School Council.

We are asking pupils to apply to do the training and send in two references in support of their application. Training dates are still to be confirmed, but at this stage it would be helpful if you would let us know if this is something you would like to become involved in.

We hope you are able to work with us on this exciting new venture. If you would like to discuss this in further detail please contact the Leading Aspect Award Agency on 0121-464 1237. Please also visit our website at www.leadingaspectaward.org.uk
 

 

A copy of the Flyer and the Proforma are available under Documents - Helpful Documents for all - Young People as Verifiers.
