Staff Development Day

Monday 29 October 2007


Purpose of the day


The staff training and development day has been themed to support you in your role in dealing with students whose personal and health circum,stances impact on their learning.


In education today we carry a much greater social responsibility than was the case in previous generations. many of our students present challenges to their learning that we can recognise and address if we are properly trained.


the sessions arranged for the day are intended to give you an understanding and improved confidence in providing the caring context that Dunstable College stands for.


Where relevant, recent legislative changes will be explained so that you are aware of your responsibilities in relation to equality law in education and work.


I hope you enjoy the day. Please provide feedback so that we can plan more and better courses for you in the future.
