An introduction to person-centred practices and Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans in schools
This is a one day workshop that offers participants the opportunity to gain an understanding of what is meant by person-centred practices in schools.
It provides an opportunity to practice developing a one-page profile and to gain an awareness of how person-centred practices can inform EHC Plans.
What do we mean by person-centred practices?
Person-centred practices are ways of commissioning, providing and organising services by really listening to what people want. A one-page profile is one of a range of person-centred practices that can be used in schools to help us to personalise the school experience. It is a way to find out what is important to a person, how best to support them and what others appreciate about them. In schools, they can be used with children and young people, teachers and governors – in fact, anyone who is part of the school community! A number of schools are now using one-page profiles with all of their pupils and developing more detailed profiles – One-page Profiles Plus – with children who have Special Educational or Additional Learning Needs. Person-centred practices can also be used to support the development of EHC plans.
What will it cover?
- Separating what is important to someone from what is important for them and how they want to be supported.
- Developing a one-page profile.
- Recording how an individual is communicating through the use of a communication chart.
- Discovering what is working and not working from different perspectives.
- Top tips for introducing one-page profiles in schools.
- Walking through the local area’s Section A of the EHC Plan to map person-centred practices to it.
