EQE

Capacity Planning

eQe has more than 10 years experience specifically in training staff and management to be able to run our mainstream programmes and therapeutic interventions themselves. Data collected shows the positive impact of these interventions.

eQe’s CAPACITY BUILDING Interventions aim to build your capacity as a school to meet pupils’ emotional needs yourselves.

Each intervention provides you with a complete programme that can be delivered by a member of your own staff as part of your provision. All use creative therapeutic approaches but the media varies, providing a range of interventions for different ages and different needs.

We also have parallel After School Club programmes, which can also be Capacity Building.

Sustainable and accessible
Capacity Building Training for schools normally happens:
– From your own workplace
– During normal working hours
– On an actual programme while first being run by an eQe professional with a client group of your children

So there is no need to attend off-site training, out of hours, and it is heavily experiential-focused.

That’s a sustainable investment

Interventions for Children/Young People

Scrummy Crew©™
This therapeutic programme uses the medium of food to enable children to explore and experience
nurture and the feelings connected to this, whilst also providing an opportunity to develop life skills.


Root Crew©™
This programme is built on the principals of therapeutic horticulture. Through interaction with the natural world and through growing and caring for living plants children are enabled to explore themes such as nurture, meeting of needs, growth, delayed gratification, safety and change.


SmArty Crew©™
This therapeutic programme utilises a variety of creative and artistic processes with the aim of enabling children to explore and address any difficult issues that may be occurring for them, and to explore and experience nurture and the feelings connected to this.


Rhythm Crew©™
This therapeutic music programme focuses on developing relationships and improving communication through the medium of music


Wild Things©™
This intervention is aimed at children in KS1. It combines Forest School and therapeutic creative approaches. The children will experience safety, containment and a sense of belonging. They will learn to connect positively with others, develop a sense of appropriate boundaries and from these they will experience the freedom to explore their environment and have their senses awakened.


Time Travellers©™
Schools are increasingly highlighting their concerns to us around children entering nursery who seem unable to play. This programme takes children on a journey through different play media, and from solitary to co-operative play.


Messy Crew©™
Children who have missed out on early sensory play lack the confidence to explore the world freely and often struggle to self-regulate and contain themselves. This small group intervention takes them on a journey through play activities that awaken their senses and help them to start to self regulate.


Cool Play Crew©™
Many children struggle with play times. They may constantly get into trouble or they may feel isolated. This small group intervention teaches them the basic skills necessary to function successfully at playtimes. It can be successfully rolled out as a whole school approach.


Beautiful Inside and Out©™
This therapeutic intervention is aimed at girls in Year 6 and above and provides an opportunity for them to explore self-image and self-care. It combines creative self-esteem work with health and beauty activities.


Wild Crew©™
This therapeutic intervention is aimed at boys in Year 5/6/7. It combines Forest schools concepts with other educational and therapeutic approaches, using outdoor games and activities alongside discussion to enable the group members to explore their identity now and as they become men.


Transformers ©™
This programme is aimed at children/young people from Yr 6 upwards. It develops internal skills and self confidence exploring themes such as internal strengths, delayed gratification and resilience. It can be delivered whole class or small group.


Interventions for Children/Young People and their Parents/Carers

eQe now has a range of parent/carer interventions. Engaging parents to work with their children on specifically designed, creative and therapeutic activities can have a significant impact on the adult/child relationship and therefore result in behaviour change.

Participating in the groups also builds the confidence of the adult and provides them with new skills which then transfer back into the home environment resulting in sustained changes. Due to the creative nature of the interventions parents/carers find them less intimidating and more accessible than a course specifically on parenting.

A version of each programme above (except ‘Beautiful’) can be run with parents/carers and their children to help foster more positive relationships.

Wings of Change©™
This transition programme is aimed at children moving from KS1 to KS2. It can be delivered whole class or small group and uses a range of creative media to explore change using the metaphor of the caterpillar metamorphosis.


A Journey, 3 Keys and a Wizard©™
A unique programme that uses visualisations and creative activities to help children explore the deeper issues faced during transitions.


Transformers ©™
This programme is aimed at children/young people from Yr 6 upwards. It develops internal skills and self confidence exploring themes such as internal strengths, delayed gratification and resilience. It can be delivered whole class or small group.


Whole School Interventions

These interventions aim to build the capacity of your staff throughout the school to foster wellbeing and develop pupils’ emotional skills. The length of an intervention will be tailor made for your school.

Circle Time modelling – a programme that takes staff from observing to co-delivering and finally to independently delivering whole class Circle Time.

Imagine a School – a programme that takes staff from observing to co-delivering and finally to independently delivering whole class Relaxation and Visualisation. (includes a staff meeting)

Massage in Schools Programme – This programme involves the training of each class to carry out the Peer Massage routine, and the training of the staff to facilitate the process. Includes a staff meeting and a drop in session for parents.

Play 4 Pennies

This one day workshop provides an opportunity for a large number of parents/carers to engage with their children in play activities that cost ‘pennies’ and can easily be replicated at home. DVDs are available for them to take home which take them through the activities (visually – so removing any language barriers) ensuring they are confident to take the activities back to the home environment. It can also be delivered as a series of six after-school clubs.
