The Role of the Key Person

What are the practicalities of the role of the key person? Developing an effective key person approach which is centred around quality interactions with children and parents has practical and organisational issues that will need to be thought about.

These clips will help you think about this in the context of your setting. They also look at the importance of supervision and how staff members can support each other. Seeing what attachment behaviour can look like in settings and what issues may arise (both practical and emotional) can support practitioners to reflect on their own practice and experiences. This leads to an action plan being formed after each session, making sure the training leads to practical and physical results for your team and your setting.
