Observing children and planning around their individual needs is an essential part of the EYFS and crucial to your Ofsted rating. Practitioners need to be aware of the characteristics of effective learning and understand how these relate to observing children’s progress in their learning and development.
They need to know and understand when and what should be observed and importantly what should be assessed. If you are using an electronic recording system such as Tapestry to track your observations then you need to make sure you are using it to its full potential to track the children and inform next steps.
This Observing with systems such as Tapestry course will enable You:
- To identify what information is useful to record when observing a child.
- Using systems such as Tapestry to assess within the different areas of learning and characteristics of effective learning.
- To be able to evaluate what you observed in order to write meaningful Next Steps and make informed plans.
- Getting the most out of Digital Observing and Recording.
This Observing with Tapestry course is aimed at practitioners new and experienced in order to support their being able to meet the high expectations placed on us by Ofsted and to ensure they are observing for a purpose and in a way that supports school readiness for children.
We are currently delivering our courses via Zoom Live. We use a lot of different methods to make sure courses are as interactive as possible and do expect delegates to have cameras on and sound on when required. We also request that you take part in the feedback on our courses in order that we can improve our services every time. We provide individual certificates for all of our courses.
This course can be delivered to one or a group of settings arranged by yourself.
