Engagement Model Training
This session is suitable for all school staff - it provides an overview of The Engagement Model, introducing the 5 focus areas of exploration, realisation, anticipation, persistence & initiation.
It will also briefly cover the rationale, as well as statutory responsibilities regarding the model. The model encourages schools to measure each pupils’ progress independently, according to their individual profile of needs. It can also be used as a baseline tool to track and support ongoing progress.
The 5 areas of engagement:
These areas allow teachers to assess pupils’ engagement in developing new skills, knowledge and concepts in the school’s curriculum by demonstrating how pupils are achieving specific outcomes. They represent what is necessary for pupils to fully engage in their learning and reach their full potential.
The engagement model is a unique method of observation, allowing insight that improves provision for all pupils. It uses a pupil-centred approach that focuses on their abilities rather than disabilities and recognises that there is complex interaction between pupils’ physical, sensory, communication and learning disabilities that affects how they progress.
