Easing Transitions In Education

I wonder if anyone can help me!

 

I've got a document in front of me all about how to make transitions in education, e.g. home to first setting, first setting to reception, reception to year one, easier for the child and family. I was given it at a recent Early Years Conference but there's no reference on it to tell me where it's from!

 

It's in a table format and goes through social and personal, curricular, pedagogic and adminstrative points to consider, linking it the Every Child Matters and giving examples of essential, extending and exemplary practice when easing the transitions. It's very good!

 

I need to know where it comes from because I'm going to give it to a Foundation Degree student that I'm mentoring who has got to wirte a report all about these transitions - I don't want her to get into trouble for not referencing it!

 

Has anyone else got this document or come across it? Where is it from?!?!? :o:)

Hi Deborah

Id be really interested to know it came from too!

Is it possible that it was something written by the providers of the conference? The only transitions I cold think of was the Transition section in the Common Core document but this isn't what you described at all.

 

lets hope one of our number will know exactly what you are referring to

I echo others comments, sounds like a useful document. :D

 

When I did my ADCE Dissertation and used handouts from the college sessions which were not obviously named I referenced them to the college, session title,date and as a handout. Don't know if this will be acceptable at FD level though :o

just thinking about it, it does sound familiar, I am guessing it could be from a government department such as DFES (Continuing the Learning Journey? :() or Sure Start or from a research publication such as EPPE xD:(

Yep, Susan, I've decided that when I go into work tomorrow I'll try and get hold of the early years advisory teacher that organised the conference and see if she can shed any light on it! It was actually the keynote speaker who handed it out - she was Linda somebody, came from Lancashire and had specialised in early years and been head to a couple of schools, one of which she had "turned around" after it was placed in special measures. I can't remember her surname and can't put my hands on the course notes anywhere!!!...but she was an excellent speaker and obviously much in demand. I think she said she does advisory work in Lincolnshire at the moment if that rings any bells with anyone?

 

ANYWAY.......with any luck I'll find the source and be able to post it on here - if I can't, I'll try and find some way of attaching the document so you can all see it. Thank you Peggy for doing that googling - I had a look at the link but that's not it - but thank you! :)

An update....I got hold of the conference organiser this morning - she's going to contact the speaker and thinks that she wrote it herself. Once I've had confirmation of this I'll TRY and get it attached somehow - how do I get from a piece of paper in my hand to an attachment.....I know, I'll ask my children!!! :o

Hi Deborah, you would need to check if there is copyright on the document, perhaps you can ask if you manage to catch up with the author whether or not you can share it with us

 

If it OK to share it with us, you would need a scanner i think.
