Play Wales Workshops

New and exciting training workshops

We are now offering a varied and exciting range of new half day and one day workshops delivered by our experienced and specialist trainers.

The workshops will increase learners’ skills, knowledge and practical experience in relation to children’s play as well as providing an opportunity to share good practice. They provide continuous professional development opportunities for anyone with an interest in or responsibility for providing opportunities for children’s play.

As part of the Statutory Duty on local authorities to assess and secure sufficient play opportunities, there is a requirement to ensure that all those who have an impact on children’s play have access to a range of training, qualifications and continuing professional development opportunities. Our workshops cater for a range of professionals including:

- Playwork and childcare practitioners

- Practitioners working with children in non-playwork roles including family support, education, community development, social work and youth work

- Community organisations, community councils and voluntary groups with an interest in children’s play

- Schools

- Those in roles that shape the environments where children might play including parks, planning, highways and health.

The participative workshops can be delivered locally to small groups of learners across Wales. To keep costs as low as possible and to meet your learners’ needs we will deliver the training in your local area.

We are also offering the workshops at discounted rates for Play Wales members.

The workshops are aimed at people working and volunteering in Wales and can be adapted to meet the requirements and learning needs of the group.  

The range of workshops includes:

Playwork theory 

Playful facilitation

Applying risk-benefit assessment in a play setting

Mud and Sparks®
