The Motivational Partnership Every Child Matters workshops aim to provide a forum for teaching and support staff to engage in the programme and improve the level of interaction we have in promoting the five themes:

  • Be Healthy
  • Stay safe
  • Enjoy and achieve
  • Make a positive contribution
  • Achieve economic wellbeing


Taking responsibility
It is our responsibility to take an interest into the wellbeing of young people in our care and it is vital that all personnel involved remain accountable for providing a service that ensures procedures are in place to address issues of concern. Throughout this workshop we will establish steps we have in place and identify the management of these.

Role models
As ambassadors of best practice in leading a positive lifestyle we must practise what we preach. Behaviour is learned. As role models our students will relate to us and be inspired by both our words and actions. The Motivational Partnership will use the workshop as an opportunity to look at ourselves and identify areas we need to improve on in order to project the right image.

Course overview
We will investigate the practices and proposals we have in place to ensure that all our staff adhere to the standards outlined.

The day promises to be informative, interactive and memorable providing thought provoking exercises that generate discussions, concerns and suggestions. Our aim is to simply "Raise Standards" of working practices, approachability and empathy of personnel towards the ECM programme.

Delegates will be updated of the importance of their involvement in complying with the ECM programme and be equipped with the knowledge of how to connect effectively with young people and deal with situations effectively.
