To develop an effective key person approach you need to understand what it’s all about. Section one of the key person course will help you understand and embed knowledge about the key person approach and it’s links with attachment theory.

Observing attachment behaviour in short observation video clips opens up discussion and reflection on the theories, what they look like in practice and how this knowledge can be linked to daily practice. 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.

Everyone involved will quickly get used to the format and allowing your staff members the safety of being able to discuss the practice seen in the videos is great for starting discussion and reflection on current practice. It’s a method advocated by a recent Ofsted research report, read more about it here READ ARTICLE
