Code: SCH/20/54 Developing your School's digital strategy workshop

Portsmouth Head Teachers and School Leaders are invited to join Natalie Sheppard and Debbie Anderson for a workshop for school leaders who wish to extend their school's use of technology to enhance learning and are looking for advice about where and how to start. Natalie and Debbie will share their experiences, and the aim will be to create a supportive network for schools at an early stage of their digital journey. We will also hear from Heather Hadfield, Regional Lead of the DfE Ed Tech programme, who will present on the Ed Tech programme and the opportunities for Portsmouth schools to participate in visits and collaborations, which can be bespoke to individual school contexts.

Colleagues from all phases will be very welcome, but we think this session is likely to be particularly relevant to those in primary (including infant and junior) and special schools.

A link to the Webinar will be sent to you prior to the course.

Code: PCC/20/264 Resilience Awareness

The workplace can be rich with opportunity. It's a place where we can learn and grow, develop and contribute, build our careers, earn our living and provide for our family. It can also be challenging, demanding and exhausting.

Everyone has to cope with the stresses and strains of work and everyday life. Challenges and change are a constant for all of us. Some of these involve taking some degree of risk, while some may be crises or emergencies that demand our immediate attention.

You will have developed coping mechanisms during your life that help you deal with familiar adverse situations and many unfamiliar ones. Some of your coping mechanisms however, aren't so effective and can even make situations worse.

What separates those who can hold their own and keep going in times of adversity is a cluster of habits that centre on resilience. This workshop will explore what resilience is and the habits that strengthen your resilience enabling you to:

• Deal with pressure and handle stress
• Maintain your motivation and engagement
• Develop and sustain self-esteem
• Bounce back from set-backs and disappointments
• Transform your work life

N.B. There is a Resilience & Wellbeing module on the Intranet featuring videos and downloadable resources.
