Reflective Practice Training Package

1 x pre-training session

Costs and inclusions

Packages start at $5,000 and all package options can be further tailored and customised to meet your service's needs and budget. Travel and accommodation are costed separately depending on your location.

Implementation considerations

Target population:
Early years staff working with children aged three to five.
Program adaptability:
TraCS has been designed to be customised to the needs of each Service within a framework of relational support.  There is capacity within each Package for elements to be delivered virtually/online via MS Teams or Zoom (to help reduce the cost of travel to your Service). Access to devices/computers to participate virtually will be required. 
It may be beneficial for Educators to be released occasionally from their contact duties to consult with a TraCS practitioner. Services should therefore consider the cost of backfill when determining the cost of accessing this resource.
