Job of my dream!

I am currently writing an application form for an assistant play development worker.
In my application I want to write good examples in relation to the job spec/ description.
I have a lot of experience as a play worker and a teaching assistant on a voluntary basis.
This job could be my big break and don’t want to fall short in the application and be short listed.
Anyone have any advice on key points to discuss or any potential things I could be asked is successful with an interview?

In your interview u will most likely be asked why u want this position, what u can bring to the role that others may not, how u would do certian aspects of the job, how u think team work is important as its an assistant role so i assume u will be wortking with another practitioner! plus all the usual qu's.
Hope this helps x

Yeah the community nursery nurse and CC leader. I've met them and they where lovely and gave me good advice about the concerns for that paticular CC.
How would anyone promote inclusion within rural communities. I've wrote about parent forums and getting into the heart of communities.
Finding it hard to find good examples of safegaurding as I've never had to deal with a situation involving child protection.

safeguarding is simple, record everything, keep it private apart from the relevant people, if u think something is wrong and the parents/guardians cannot be approached about it then discuss it with your senior and go from there! its all about confidentiallity and following the correct procedures x

I work in a rural CC and our remit is very much to respond to the needs of the various communities - you couldn't look at it as one large area, as different village had different populations with different needs.
Safeguarding - just report any concerns you may have to your line manage or the Designated person and write an accurate report as soon as possible after the event. Don't question the child as this could be considered misleading. Make sure you are aware of the correct procedures.
You could talk about involving parents in their children's play, helping them to realise what the children are learning through everyday activities and giving parents ideas of simple things to do at home. (For example, singing, looking at books, baking cakes, messy play)This very much ties in with the new EYFS and involving parents in their children's learning. You could reference the EPPE report here and the importance of the Home Learning Environment on children's future success.
Hope this helps.
