"One of the things that I love about Siren Films is their ability to capture the uniqueness of children. In their clips we can see research and theory transferred to the screen. I 100% recommend the Video Clip Library to anyone who delivers qualifications and training, as well as to Early years settings and schools, to enhance practice and change ways of supporting children. "Laura Henry, International EY consultant, Trainer & Author
Developing Confident Practitioners
The video clips encourage practitioners to reflect on their own practice and are great for generating discussion and thought. With this kind of regular insight your team will be able to support children with a real understanding and confidence about the provision they offer.
The additional information, prompts and reflection questions provide support and guidance for planning training sessions and together with the videos, they make an ideal resource for your in house training.
In house training and staff development
Observation involves stepping back and listening as well as watching. The film process allows us to do this in a very special way. Being able to watch sequences repeatedly enables adults to tune into just what it is children want to know about or need support with.
You can use these products to support in house training & staff development, encourage thought, discussion and reflection, to help your team put new ideas into practice and as support for working with parents.
"I THINK THE FILMS AND THE COURSE MATERIALS ARE TERRIFIC... high-quality video, expert discussion of the theories and the issues, and downloadable materials is just what many of us have needed for a long time in the early years... There is nothing to rival the naturalistic films which Siren have so lovingly produced, showing children at home and at nursery, enjoying times and enduring struggles, and the power of the clips makes them stand apart.""Julian Grenier, Head of Sheringham Nursery
