Why you should attend? This course is designed to build upon current skills and experience, enabling delegates to offer a wider range of help within the school environment. This course is designed to get medical staff out of the medical centre and into the school.

Jenny Barksfield - Deputy CEO and Senior Subject Specialist, PSHE Association
Jenny left her job as a Ward Sister after 8 years of nursing to start a family, study for a degree in French and live abroad for a while. This led her down a different path to a teaching career and Jenny has now been working in PSHE education for over 20 years. She was Head of PSHE education and Citizenship at a large secondary school for 10 years culminating in a secondment to manage a project for the PSHE Association. This led to her joining the Association team, first as Training and Development Lead and now as Deputy CEO and Senior Subject Specialist, leading on partnership projects with local authorities, government departments and charities, as well as leading the Association’s team of subject specialists. She has authored or co-authored all of the Association’s key guidance materials and resources including the Programme of Study for key stages 1 – 5, which is signposted by the DfE as the national programme of study for PSHE education. Her co-authored book Understanding PSHE education in secondary schools was published in October 2016.
