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
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
