You live and you learn

You live and you learn. But sometimes you don’t. Learn, that is. You’re too busy, your workload is just too big, you have 14 meetings in two days and you can’t remember when you last had lunch.

But taking the time to learn is essential.

Whether it’s a life-long yearning to line-dance, put your make-up on right or speak Spanish like a native, it helps us grow, keeps us vibrant and refreshed, and brings something new into our lives and the lives of people around us.

CELCIS are committed to learning.

We believe in the value of learning for everyone. In-house we have ‘Learn in CELCIS’, which is a programme committed to staff development. All of my colleagues (modern apprentices, temporary staff, admin staff, trainers, and directors) are offered regular opportunities to refresh their knowledge, challenge their viewpoint, enrich their understanding or just learn something new.

In recent months, staff have been taught to improve their writing skills (you can be the judge of that!), discovered the benefits of mindfulness, learned about the challenges faced by kinship carers, and explored how new technologies can help us do our jobs.

We know that releasing staff can be a challenge, or just getting away from your own desk. Your case-load is heavy and you can’t get through all your emails. But learning matters. Make the time. Come and learn with CELCIS.

We also know that your finances are really important, especially at a time when every penny counts. That’s why we offer the option of using the budget you have available now, to pay for training later in the year.

So whether it’s refreshing your team’s knowledge of Attachment or Trauma, or finding out more about Named Person Training, we have a range of courses we can deliver at a time and place that suits you. Or we can work with you to assess your needs and tailor a course just for you.

We love to learn and we bring that passion and conviction to the training we can offer you. We will inspire, empower and challenge you.

To put it simply; we believe in learning. We believe in the value of it for our own staff and we invest in that. And we absolutely believe in it for you, your staff, and the difference your professional development will ultimately have on the lives of children and young people.
