Listening to young children: supporting transition
In this free course, Listening to young children: supporting transition, you will explore ways of listening to children in order to support their experiences of changes or transitions. Such transitions can involve many dimensions including familiarisation with new cultural practices, the development of new relationships, and potentially a shift in identity, for example from being a ‘nursery child’ to being a ‘pupil’. During the course you will explore how listening to children as they go through such fundamental transitions can enable adults to personalise support, and ensure children can become confident, active participants in a new setting.
