Take 5 for Play

Course Details

Take 5 for Play is a 15-hour tutor led course. There are lots of practical activities and games for you to join in with! You will be asked to contribute your ideas and experiences, and to start to make connections between your learning and your playwork practice.

To help you do this you will carry out 10 hours of playwork practice in play settings that your tutor will help you to organise. You will be asked to keep a short diary of your playwork practice. This diary will help you become more reflective and think more about your role. A follow up session may be available to you to discuss your playwork practice.

Your training provider has signed up to the SkillsActive Code of Practice and you will have a playwork tutor so issues of Equality of Opportunity are carefully considered and acted upon.

The 15 hour training course consists of six sessions:

  • The importance of play
  • Playwork and teamwork
  • Fair Play - building relationships
  • Safe play - health and safety
  • Safeguarding children
  • Playwork - a job worth doing

Who is this course for?

This course is for you if you have just started work and require induction, or if you want to gain experience working with children and young people aged 4 - 16 years in a play setting. You need no experience of Playwork before joining this course and your tutor will also be able to help if you have any learning needs. It is an ideal stepping stone form the orientation course 'Making Choices'.

 

"The trainers were knowledgeable, open and honest. They answered all questions straight on and were passionate about helping me to get the most from both sessions"
