Capacity Building that supports educators make the best use of the Emotion Works programme is at the heart of what Emotion Works does as an organisation.
If you are a teacher or educator interested in continuous professional development with Emotion Works, this section of our website sets out our steps to becoming an accredited practitioner, mentor, trainer or school, along with case examples for each process.
If you’re currently making good use of Emotion Works in your practice we’d love to hear more about your experiences and support you towards being accredited as an Emotion Works Practitioner
As an accredited practitioner you will be encouraged to share your Emotion Works knowledge and experiences by taking on a mentoring role in your school or setting to support colleagues who are getting started using the approach.
If this is something you enjoy, you may like to consider our accreditation pathway towards becoming an Emotion Works Trainer which offers a very cost-effective approach to setting up local trainers. Emotion Works trainers can work for us directly in a free-lance arrangement, or they can deliver training as part of their existing role for their local authority or organisation.
With more and more settings taking on using Emotion Works across their whole school we are in the process of developing a programme of support which will lead to a School Accreditation Award. We are currently working with 8 schools from across Scotland to help shape this accreditation process. Plans are also afoot for a similar award in nursery settings too.
Sharing my practice today was a really empowering experience. Having such supportive and positive people there was so helpful. Kirsty and Sandra, it was great to shadow such brilliant practice from you both. Claire, you were inspirational as usual and thanks for 'holding my hand' - it was a big personal development landmark for me. Thank you for inviting me. Amy Gallagher, PT Middlefield School, Glasgow
