Training Programmes

Compass In-service Training

When joining the Compass CFS team all new employees will receive training in the following areas:

o MAPA (Management of Actual and Potential Aggression)
o Children’s First
o Fire Safety

Conferences and workshops

Compass CFS recognises the importance of upskilling, networking, sharing of ideas and learning from other professionals within the social care field. Compass CFS facilitates and actively encourages employees to present or facilitate workshops at conferences. This is a great way to develop communication and presentation skills but more importantly it encourages active participation which is a key principle of social pedagogy.

Social Pedagogy

Practice and learning in social pedagogy is a journey that requires frequent and regular nurturing. A continual training programme in Social Pedagogy is provided for all employees. This process starts with an ‘Introduction to Social Pedagogy’ training developed and facilitated by Kemp Consultancy. All employees in Compass CFS are participating in the newly developed Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), Social Pedagogy across Europe.
