English as an additional language in the Early years
Did you know over 11% of children in reception classes in Doncaster are now learning English as an additional language? EAL learners in Doncaster do not currently do as well as their counterparts in other areas of the country. At the end of the foundation stage outcomes for children learning EAL are significantly lower than for those who are not. This course will support schools to improve outcomes for our pupils with EAL alongside their peers. It will introduce a range of language and learning strategies and support practitioners in carrying out accurate assessments for pupils at the very early stages of learning English. This course will give practitioners ideas on how to include the culture and identity of EAL learners through high quality early years provision and practice.

An Overview of the Typologies of Domestic Abuse
This workshop is intended to provide an understanding of the work of Professor Michael Johnson on the typologies of domestic abuse. It is for practitioners who work directly with domestic abuse who would benefit from a better understanding of the typologies and how these should inform direct work and approaches to support for both victims and perpetrators. It will also identify the impacts on children. It will introduce practitioners to the important differences between typologies and support them to identify the typology based on presenting behaviours with links to the DASH risk assessment.
