COVID-19: News - IMPORTANT UPDATE
Due to the continuing and increasing Covid19 situation in the UK, we have taken the decision to move all our PartnershipProjects International Training ONLINE with immediate effect. Therefore all training dates shown on our Training pages from 1.11.2020 until end of July 2021 will still take place but they will take place remotely via Zoom*. If you have already booked a place for the Face to Face (F2F) Training, please rest assured the dates will remain the same but the delivery method will change. As always, we will deliver training to the highest standard, and are exploring ways in which we can maximise the possibilities the online medium has to offer. You will be contacted by our training co-ordinator Gus, but if you have any questions in the interim, please feel free to contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible.
*We reserve the right to alter this decision in due time in the event of significant changes to the pandemic situation.
Our International training will resume from September. Where possible training venues will remain the same, but it may be necessary for us to change venue within the same city to ensure that the event takes place in the safest possible conditions. All participants will be sent a document outlining the precautions and measures put in place and those they will be required to follow during the duration of the training. Any queries please contact; email@example.com
Due to the continued risk of infection and spread of Covid-19, it is necessary for PartnershipProjects to adjust to the rapidly changing restrictions and government advice, while at the same time ensuring that our service provision and training obligations can be fulfilled as best possible. We will therefore take the following measures concerning Agency Based Training (ABT) and International Training.
- All suspended training activities will be rescheduled from 1st September 2020 when our training will resume.
- Our target is to re-schedule all postponed training to take place before the end of 2020, provided we can reach agreement on this with commissioning agencies.
- The training administrator will require commissioning organisations in the case of agency-based training, and training venues in the case of international training, to provide information on the hygiene and infection safety measures that will be taken, so we can ascertain that they comply with government regulations, guidelines and advice. In particular, commissioning organisations or training venues must take the following measures: All participants are to be instructed by the commissioning organisation (or by PartnershipProjects directly in the case of international training only) to wash hands upon arrival at the venue, prior to actually coming into the training room. Participants are further to be instructed to use hand sanitizer upon entering or leaving the training room.
- Hand sanitizing dispensers are to be placed at the entrance to the training room.
- Chairs in the training room are to be dispersed at a safe distance in accordance with social distancing guidelines.
- Face masks are to be worn if this is government advice at the time of the training.
- The provision of refreshments and meals will follow government regulations, guidelines, and advice
In light of the latest advice from the UK Government about the Corona Virus, we have taken the difficult decision for the wellbeing of all our Colleagues and Participants to POSTPONE all our PartnershipProjects International and Agency Based Training with immediate effect, and for an initial period of 12 weeks which takes us up to week commencing 8th June 2020. We will be rescheduling the training courses shortly and you will be advised of the dates as soon as these are available, they will also be advertised on our website and via our Facebook and Twitter pages. There will, of course, be no additional costs to transfer to a different course later in the year or next year (2021) should you wish. We are sincerely sorry to have to do this but feel that in the current climate it is the only sensible course of action. We will, of course, be monitoring the developing situation on an ongoing basis.
We do not have a further Accreditation Module scheduled. We need at least 10 people in order to run this course. Therefore, to register your interest in future Accreditation Modules please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: this module will be held ONLINE
A PartnershipProjects International Training Course
Successful Completion of The PartnershipProjects Accreditation Module (AM) makes NVR Practitioners eligible for Accreditation with The NVR Association (NVRA Level III); the professional body that regulates and accredits NVR practice in the UK. Individuals are then able to use the title ‘NVRA Accredited Practitioner’*. This is the highest level of NVR qualification available in the UK.
This module will be facilitated by two Accredited Practitioners who have considerable experience of applying NVR with families and in a variety of settings. The module consists of 10 x 3 hour evening seminars that take place online. Each cohort will be made up of no less than 7 and no more than 10 practitioners. In order to join the AM individuals should have already successfully completed the PartnershipProjects Advanced Certificate in NVR Practice (NVRA Level II) which includes the coursework component: see full information here on Evaluation & Certification: https://www.partnershipprojectsuk.com/training-workshops/booking-evaluation-certification/
Each participant will be invited to present a piece of their own work to the group that demonstrates their competence in applying the principles of NVR within their particular setting. Presentations should last for between 45 minutes and 1 hour and each participant will be allocated a separate week on which to present. We encourage participants to be creative in the way that they present their work and to include video or live interview with families where relevant / possible. The presentation should focus on an area of application that is of special interest to the practitioner.
Each presentation will be followed by an interview with the facilitators and then a reflecting team discussion.
Each participant will also be required to write a blog post, based on the central theme of their presentation that can be published on the PartnershipProjects website.
To receive their NVR Association (NVRA) accreditation each practitioner must be able to demonstrate that since completing their advanced level training they have completed at least 60 hours of direct client work using the NVR approach and have received 6 hours of NVR Supervision.
* ‘Accredited Practitioner’ status does not include accreditation as an NVR supervisor or NVR trainer (of professionals).
