Welcome to the Learner Zone. We are delighted that you have decided to continue your professional development by joining us on an ARISE course.
We know that the training will deepen your knowledge, inform your practice and increase your confidence. We know this, because other learners have told us!
One of the things we value at ARISE is Achievement which means taking small (or large) steps towards your goal - training may be one of those steps. People come on training course for many reasons, for example, they want to gain a qualification, they may want to improve their knowledge and skills, they may want to network with others in their field of work or they may have been ‘sent’ by their manager! However you join an ARISE training course, we will work with you to achieve your goals and will respect your decisions and choices.
You may have some doubts and that is perfectly normal but then again you may be excited and looking forward to the new learning. Integrity is our key value – be true to yourself and what you want out of the training.
The key to successful learning is what you are taking away and how it is going to impact on your practice. You may be wondering if you should go for accreditation, well rest assured we have supported many learners in gaining accreditation over the years. If you are willing to put in the time and the effort, we are confident that we will be able to help you to achieve your goal.
Remember excellence and qualifications are two different things – you can still be an excellent practitioner without qualifications! Each person is different and we will ask you to reflect on your self throughout the course. Some questions you may wish to ask yourself before going on training include:
- Do I know what this course is about?
- What do I want to get out of this course?
- What might get in the way of me doing this course? (Time, family commitments, work pressures, not sure what I will get from it?)
- Who is going to support me back at work?
Our fifth value is equality. We value each person for their uniqueness and individuality. Make sure you talk to your trainer about how we can help you to get the best out of the course and remember this time is for YOU!
Enjoy it and good luck.
"Every participant at the Families Going Forward training could identify likely positive impacts on their outreach practice and behaviour as a result of the training. This is an excellent outcome and suggests that the Families Going Forward training offers the potential of contributing to improvements to children’s centre outreach practice and behaviour".

"I would recommend this course and [will] let others know how valuable it is and how knowledgeable the course can make you. Also it is important if you have direct contact with families as it challenges your practice. Thank you for giving me the tools to move forward in my work with families."
Petra, Community Nursery Officer, Haringey
"This course has been a great addition because it gives my staff a structured way of thinking about supporting families from beginning to the end, ensuring that they become independent and self sufficient."

"It’s a great way to cement my knowledge and practice with theories and legislation"

"…Supporting families with multiple and complex needs is an area of expertise that requires specialist skills and knowledge, often crossing existing professional boundaries…"
"…Expertise of practitioners is a critical component in delivering improved outcomes for families…requires investment in a system which recognises, and supports the development of the key worker role."

"This course will most definitely enhance my practice. Materials were of excellent quality and aimed at the right level. Family intervention work is a specialist area and this training acknowledges that. They seem to have ‘injected’ us with a high level of motivation and determination to take the FIP model forward. I couldn’t have asked for more. Well worth attending."
Teresa Cameron, Family Intervention Key Worker, Sutton
