Sensitive Conversations

Target audience

All early years workforce.

About this course

This course aims to support practitioners in having those “sensitive conversations” which are necessary, but often ones that are difficult.  It could be a conversation with a parent about a safeguarding issue, approaching the subject of a delay in a child’s development with a parent, or a conversation with another practitioner about their practice or behaviour.

Whatever the conversation content, this course aims to support you to

  • Have increased confidence to plan for sensitive conversations.
  • feel confident in initiating sensitive conversations.
  • understand the requirement to record, reflect and respond following a sensitive conversation.
