If you're looking for a compact, off-the-peg training pack suitable for the main players in supporting the education of looked-after children, this is it, writes Simon Colbeck. One slim volume contains pages for copying as handouts and OHP transparencies as well as guidance on presenting the material in 17 concise sections. These could be delivered in a single day. Particularly helpful is the way the sections encourage participants to develop each others and their own roles on the shared aims deriving from the title... The book would be as useful to an enthusiastic practitioner as a specialist trainer.
It's an excellent resource for busy trainers who might like a pack with everything at hand including templates for OHPs and guidance notes for facilitators, plus photocopy material for handouts'.
