The training session will cover • What the Leuven scales are, and an introduction to how the scales work. • Ample opportunity to practise using the scales. • Ideas about how you might use the Leuven scales in day to day practice, including using them to identify aspects of provision you may wish to improve • An opportunity to consider how you can share the Leuven scales with parents The visit to each setting will support attendees to use the Leuven scales to observe their own key children, alongside a mentor. The setting will be supported to consider how to use the Leuven scales in day to day practice.
