Completing “Talking to Parents about the Hard Stuff”© will contribute 6 hours of NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Registered PD addressing 3.7.2, 5.5.2, 6.2.2 & 7.3.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW

 


Sometimes we need to tell parents and carers some things that we know they will find hard to hear, perhaps about their child’s development or behaviour, or the parents approach to parenting or discipline, or perhaps where we have concerns about what might be happening at home.

This NESA endorsed workshop will provide you with learning tools and strategies for responding to situations when you need to have those challenging conversations.

 

The workshop will cover:

  • Practical strategies for managing challenging conversations whilst maintaining respect and professionalism
  • A framework to assist Teachers to identify ways of promoting parent’s readiness to hear difficult messages and ways of communicating difficult content in accessible ways

Get your Professional Development back on track and maintain your Teacher Accreditation with this practical workshop that will enhance your capacity to engage more effectively with parents and carers.

 

Who should attend this workshop?

Recommended for NSW Proficient Teachers.
