b) How have policies influenced access to learning opportunities for children and young people?
These individually assist in binging together legislation, policy & guidance to inform and influence the daily practice of a registered childcare
establishment, setting out the requirements for a provider’s operational policies and procedures. The child has the opportunities to take an active part in shaping the way they receive education and the running of local and national organisations. They have a right to be involved in the decisions that affect them. This is promoted in law, policy and guidance such as Every Child Matters, the Children Act 2004Children’s Trusts and inspections.

a) How can you encourage a child or young person to recognise how their interest’s talents and abilities can help them achieve their aspirations? b) Describe how you have worked with a child or young person to help them see how they can build on their interests, talents and abilities.
(3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5)
a) How do you work with children or young people to set and monitor progress towards goals and targets?
At the Warren we have Personal Education Plans (PEP) for each of the young people, the child will be involved along with the Warren, the Childs social worker and teachers. The plans are devised to set education goals for the child that suite their current needs. The warren will monitor the progress day to day against what was set out in the PEP and liaise with other professionals to update and seek guidance. At a follow up PEP the warren and attending professionals will look back at the goals set and assess where progress has been made and set new goals if applicable.
b) How do you support children or young people to carry out learning activities?
At the warren we work to empower the young people to take a positive ownership of their lives and the ways in which they can further themselves. We will encourage the child to be involved in activities that promote self-esteem self- confidence and assertiveness but also educate and get the child to think and challenge themselves to help the child to gain a sense of control about what choices they can make and how they can improve their lives.
c) How do you support children or young people to recognise and deal with attitudes of behaviour that may undermine learning opportunities?
At the warren we care for children that usually push any boundaries that are put in place but as a nurturing provider the warren is aware that children learn by making mistakes. Children who come to live at the warren often struggle in educational settings due to their inability to mix in with groups in a learning setting and their fear of failure, this usually results in negative behaviours that require the child to be removed from a typical educational setting. The warren is there to support the child to become more aware of their own behaviours and how they impact on their opportunities. We work closely with each child so that we can form good relationships and can openly discuss the reason for positive change.
d) How do you encourage children or young people to see how their learning experiences can be applied to other areas of life?
At the warren we are always striving to promote the children to have a positive outlook on their lives and a big part in becoming successful is learning new skills socially, emotionally an physically. We will encourage the child become involved in all parts of life to develop and fulfil the potential. Showing the child that we are all different and that this is acceptable we are giving them the confidence to be themselves and by learning that being understanding and adaptable in all walks of life they are showing they can develop and change their sense of who they are with each new experience and become the person they want to be. At the warren we work to a solution focused approach that gets the child to look at how they would like to see their preferred future. We encourage them to look at what is going right for them at the moment and explore the small steps needed to continue on this path in order to reach the goals for their future. We aim to support the child to develop a sense of personal responsibility they can identify with, by taking a more positive approach to their life and the choices they make, and empower them to think they can change the direction in which their life may be heading for the better.
e) How do you provide children or young people with enthusiastic feedback to celebrate their achievements? covered ref 1E
(4.1, 4.2, 4.3)
a) Why is it important to engage carers in children’s and young people’s learning?
It is important for the warren to play an active role in the development and learning potential of any child. Children often feel isolated and unsupported when it comes to learning, staff at the warren will act as positive role models and use their own experiences to take and active part in the child’s life. By discussing, and showing an interest and encouraging all forms of learning (creative play, school, home tutoring, independent living, social interaction etc) helps child to recognise the value and their own good ideas is supported by staff.

c) Why is it important to have effective communication between all those involved in a child or young person’s learning?
It is important to have effective communication between the warren and all professionals involved to promote effective collaborative working between the warren, teachers and other professionals to ensure we all are focused on child centred planning and aims to ensure that the child is hearing the same messages from all parties. Good communication allows the access to high quality education and supported learning services, from the point the child’s needs are identified and to establish what best meets each child’s individual needs. The warren establishes a commitment between all professionals to work collaboratively to ensure each child the best opportunity to achieve their potential. Effective communication ensures that professionals focus on developing shared working practices, communication between agencies allows the opportunity to draw on the experience of each professional and promote a seamless approach to meet the needs of the child an their learning. |Edexcel Level 3 Diploma for the Children and Young People’s Workforce (QCF) | |Evidence Record Sheet . | |Unit 27 support children and young people to achieve their learning potential | |I confirm that the evidence provided is a result of my own work
