‘Listening and supporting children during COVID19’ is a 2-hour virtual classroom training that highlights the need to listen to the voices of children in the current climate. It is important to understand what they know, what they are feeling and hoping for, and how we can best listen to them and support them.

What is virtual classroom training? 

Virtual classroom training is essentially a teaching and learning environment where participants can interact, communicate, view and discuss presentations, and engage with learning resources while working in groups, all in an online setting. It is a live, interactive training session facilitated by 2 experienced Child Wise trainers and limited to a small class of up to 20 participants to ensure a complete learning experience for you. Once you have submitted the evaluation survey, you will receive a Certificate of Completion.
