Focused workshops for promoting better discussion

At Senior Teacher Live we keep our workshop groups small, between 10 to 20, to allow for good discussion from all attendees. If a workshop is fully subscribed and there are additional expressions of interest we may offer it again in the same year to accomodate current interests.

Our workshops are written and delivered by our experienced team who have over 50 years experience in Early Childhood Education in New Zealand.

"I have learnt to make Social stories to support our planning. Looking after families who are non English speaking, or use English as second language is good point to share with my colleagues. Also to develop our understanding of child rearing practices in different cultures, I may encourage my colleagues to share their early childhood stories."

"It was relaxing and informative, I think they organised very well."

"It was great PLD that opened up my mind to understand Maori and Pacific ways of being, knowing and doing. Great location and timing."

"I felt all aspects were considered right down to parking, food and drinks. Content was relevant loads of resources, thank you."

"Have this programme more frequently so others can learn from it."

"Thank you for the inspiring, fun and informative workshop. Really appreciated how much effort the presenters put in. Could tell how reflective they were and that there was a culture of improvement too. Great delivery, very personalised, Thank you."
