Review of the CPD on Quality Schools

Professional Development day on The Quality School, Cambridge, Saturday 27th April 2019.

What an inspiring and energising day we had in Cambridge on Saturday! With a brilliant Keynote session from Brian Lennon, our guest presenter from The William Glasser Institute Ireland, and input from our own Executive members Geraldine, Ruth and Moira, all delegates were able to contribute to a highly interactive day. The themes that were covered centred on how Choice Theory Psychology can be applied in education and management. With much discussion on how to help schools to replace the ubiquitous Rewards and Sanctions practices that dominate many school cultures in this country, delegates came away with many practical ideas to use in their work as teachers, counsellors, volunteer coordinators, youth workers, psychologists, charity workers and other professions.

As Brian has been involved in training and consultancy around Choice Theory Psychology in several countries and worked closely with William Glasser for many years, this day was a chance to reconnect with the core principles and practical ways of applying this psychology.

Members Day 2016

Members day 2016


Our first WGI-UK Member’s Day took place on 22nd October 2016 in Cambridge. It was well attended and it was good to connect again with members that we hadn’t seen for a while as well as welcoming new people who came along to find out more about Choice Theory / Reality Therapy. The venue, Hill’s Road Sixth Form College was perfect, a wonderful new building with all the facilities we needed. Rob Leslie, his wife Goska and Carol Way laid on an amazing spread for lunch and kept us topped up with hot and cold drinks all day.

IMG 7u3e9tThe main event was a presentation from Brian Lennon who came over from Ireland to deliver two inspiring workshops: The first one, on his fascinating work with children and young people with a condition he calls Dystraxia and the second, on Helping Victims of Bullying with CT/RT.

Both sessions were stimulating and generated a lot of discussion. I certainly went away feeling that I had learnt a great deal and had increased my understanding of Dystraxia. I’m sure that those of us who work with children and young people will be better able to support them in the future due to this workshop.

During the day there was a range of resources for sale at heavily reduced prices and people went away with lots of bedtime reading. I also valued the opportunities to connect with others and I went home with my CT/RT batteries well and truly recharged!

 

We are planning to have more days such as this in the future so role on the next one and thank you to all those who attended.
