A webinar for childminders from the Pre school Learning Alliance on managing your Ofsted inspection   9 comments

PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO TECHNICAL ISSUES ON THE DAY _ THIS WEBINAR IS NOW GOING TO BE AVAILABLE ON MONDAY 21st JULY.

You can register HERE

 

Regular readers of this blog are aware that I am a member of the Pre school Learning Alliance and also a volunteer – holding the post of Chair of the Worcestershire sub committee.   I am really pleased to provide information about the webinar below – which is the first webinar that the Alliance have provided specifically for registered childminders.   I have personally registered – as I am interested in finding out what information the Alliance are providing to childminders. I do personally know Mel Plicher who is leading the session, and can confirm that she is knowledgeable about Ofsted Inspections and childminders,  although I do not know Rose, the childminder who is taking part.   Registration was easy – you just need to give your name and your email address – and press ‘submit’. You then get a confirmation email – which also tells you how to access the webinar.   If you take part, I would be interested in your feedback – and I will provide my feedback in due course.   Managing your childminding Ofsted inspection Wednesday 25 June – 7.30 pm to 8:30pm This webinar aims to support Childminders to prepare for an Ofsted inspection, acknowledging that the experience can be very different for those people who are working alone and caring for young children in their own homes.   The session is led by Melanie Plicher, Policy and Standards manager at the Pre-school Learning Alliance. There is no doubt that having an understanding of the process, and a good knowledge of what is expected will help Childminders to achieve the best possible outcome on the day. We are pleased to be joined in this session by Rose who is a Registered Childminder and will be able to bring her perspective to the discussion     Click here to register https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/9041807841776716801     PLEASE NOTE – THE WEBINAR IS OPEN TO ALL – YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE AN ALLIANCE MEMBER   Apology  Really sorry that the webinar did not take place – I was one of the people logged in and waiting. I have been in touch  with senior Alliance staff and there was a problem with the organisers login. They had to end it in the end. I apologise on behalf of the Alliance – although nothing they could do. I have been told that as they have everyone’s email address that they will be issuing a personal apology.
