This six-day program provides a practical model for looking at both children’s and educator/carer communication in daily interactions. It gives educators and carers a reflective space to see how they interact and examine how to effectively support children’s development and wellbeing. No refunds apply unless the course is cancelled by TAFE SA. International students on a Student visa (subclass 500) are not eligible to undertake short courses.
In the course you will learn to see how children naturally connect and learn to become cooperative. You will see how to make the most of everyday interactions to support cooperative behaviour and build relationships.
You will learn to observe children’s play and cooperation skills, and apply the Marte Meo adult supportive communication elements: following, linking, positive leading, cooperation and detailed guidance.
Learning in Marte Meo is video based.
Marte Meo Practitioner Training
Throughout the training participants will watch videos that highlight supportive communication. From Day 2, participants will be asked to bring video clips from their own setting to view. This will include filming of children and the participant for the purpose of identifying and practising the elements of supportive communication. The clips required are short (1–2 minutes) and participants will be guided step-by-step in what to film. On completion participants will receive a Marte Meo Practitioner Certificate awarded through Marte Meo International.
