The National PSHE CPD programme, accredited by the University of Roehampton and run by Babcock 4S, has enabled over 10 000 teachers and other professionals to gain accredited recognition of their experience in teaching personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education.
The national programme has been developed by subject experts and is based upon effective practice and subject pedagogy as highlighted by the DfE, OFSTED, Healthy Schools and related literature and research.
"PSHE subject knowledge had been improved by teachers and school nurses achieving the National PSHE CPD Certificate" Ofsted 2010.
The course explores areas surrounding:
- the theory and concepts underpinning PSHE and its specialist areas
- guidance and appropriate laws which support and impact upon PSHE
- assessment and evaluation in PSHE
- being a reflective practitioner
- difference and diversity
- normative education.
Through involvement in the programme participants can improve their confidence and competence in the delivery of PSHE and raise the quality of teaching and learning. The programme also provides an opportunity for participants to be updated on the national status of PSHE and the contribution of PSHE to the Ofsted framework.
