About the course

The SSTUWA, in partnership with TLN in Melbourne, are pleased to offer this online learning opportunity.

Working in education we meet many people, colleagues, parents, members of the community with whom it can be challenging to create a positive relationship. With the frequent contact with parents in an Early Childhood setting there is often greater pressure on staff to build the relationship particularly when following a situation of conflict. This session will outline the social and emotional competencies needed to manage challenging people and will explore practical strategies you can use to deal with different types of people in your environment.

By the end of this session you will have analysed strategies to improve relationships between adults as a leader.

Delivery method: Live online event

The event will be one hour in duration and consist of live delivery of content at the specified time by a presenter and a host. You will also have an opportunity to interact with other participants and engage with the presenter online. Completing this course will contribute to one hour of professional learning and a certificate will be provided at the end of
the session.
