Education Service

PAC-UK's Education Service offers a range of services to enable schools, parents and guardians and education and social care professionals to meet the needs of children who have experienced difficult starts in life.

Children and young people who have experienced early life trauma can experience a range of challenges in school. The Department for Education is increasingly recognising the long term impact of trauma and loss. Education providers can use Pupil Premium Plus to purchase any of our specialist education services:

Education Providers e-Learning

The online training for education professionals on attachment: a self-guided route to becoming an adoption friendly school

Whilst PAC-UK’s training is centred on the needs of previously looked after children, the e-Learning is relevant in supporting and meeting the needs of all vulnerable children – a key focus area for Ofsted. The training is relevant for everyone who works in or alongside schools, early years and FE settings.

Developed with funding from the Department for Education, the e-Learning has three modules: Module 1 - Understanding attachment and trauma; Module 2 - Creating adoption friendly classrooms and schools; Module 3 - Becoming an adoption friendly school.

Our engaging videos and specialist trainers will guide you through each module, culminating in quizzes to consolidate your learning. Upon successful completion of the final quiz for each module, this training counts as 3 hours CPD training. The below video gives a taster of what you can expect from the training. You can also download our e-Learning Promotional Flyer.

Prices start at £35 plus VAT per licence with discounts available for purchases of over 10 group licences.

I would highly recommend this training to anyone interested in schools, trauma, attachment and loss or are working with adoption children. It’s one of the best value for money bits of e-training I’ve undertaken! Stuart Guest, Headteacher at Colebourne Primary School in Birmingham
