Reflective practice is a form of critical thinking that considers our experiences and beliefs. When we are reflective we become more self-aware about the nature and impact of our role. This awareness creates opportunities for personal and professional development.

This workshop will develop knowledge and understanding of approaches and models that support reflective practice for staff working in playwork settings. It will support learners to look critically at how they provide for children’s play and how to use their reflections to adapt and improve practice. Learners will have the opportunity to think about their personal style of reflection and how to record their thoughts to return to in future to review their practice. 

Learning outcomes

  • To understand different approaches to reflective practice
  • To identify ways of embedding regular reflection into practice using techniques that meet the needs of the individuals and the context they are working in
  • To explore the relationship between reflective practice and: quality assurance, self-evaluation, external monitoring and professional frameworks.
