A wide range of competencies are needed for a child to do well. Developing the ‘whole child’ rather that a narrower skill set, is more likely to result in positive outcomes and high attainment. Tutoring children to pass a certain type of test can deliver short term benefits, but if a child is to be fully prepared for a successful adult life, then a more holistic approach is required.
Eduscope has developed a model which provides a framework to support schools, settings and parents with whole child development. A summary of this can be found here
Eduscope can offer:
- Training for local authorities, schools, settings and families about the Eduscope Framework for Child Development and how to apply this to support children in their context
- Demonstration sessions promoting whole child development
- A report on how your setting can move towards a more holistic approach to child development
