Play & Playwork

PaperChase specialises in Children’s Services and can deliver training in Play and Playwork, including Inclusive Play and Playwork and Quality in Play to schools. PaperChase has extensive experience in all aspects of organisational, business work for delivering Children’s Services in the Third Sector. Play and Playwork is often trivialised and not fully understood. Mostly play services delivered are adult-led rather than child-led. This training enables delegates to develop their skills to properly understand and deliver play. This training compliments organic child development, educational attainment, EYFS and demonstrates OfSTED Good Progress criteria.

Working with Disabled Children & Adults

PaperChase can deliver training to help your school raise its awareness and understanding of disability and ensure your school meets legislative requirements such as Equality Act 2010 equality of opportunity both in recruitment as well as delivering services to disabled children & their parents, etc.

Training includes cultivating the skills within your school to assess how it can meet these requirements and ensure your school has an ‘easy to achieve action plan’ to help develop this area of work. 


Human Resources – Recruitment, Management, Supervision & Retention

PaperChase can deliver training to help your school cultivate the skills required to develop cost effective recruitment processes, examples of good practice in Recruitment & Induction, time & cost effective management & supervision of staff and the all-important retention of valuable employees. New recruitment can be extremely costly, not only in time spent on the recruiting process but also on training new staff to bring them ‘up to speed’. This training can help your school develop good practice & processes which will ensure your school meets its legal requirements as well as retains valuable staff.

Team Building

PaperChase can deliver training to help your school cultivate a good staff team which has a direct impact on the working environment and the school as a whole. A good staff team enables all staffing levels to work together toward a common goal and help the culture of the school develop.

The training includes Personality styles, Differences, Roles, Motivation & Enthusiasm, Groups dynamics, etc. This training can also be delivered as a Team Building event where everyone within the school can review its current school activities and explore opportunities for future development or be part of its annual review.

Training for Schools


PaperChase can deliver training to help your key staff develop assertiveness. Staff not being able to deal with challenging service users, difficult situations, stress, etc. can have a direct impact on the working of the school. Assertiveness training will help staff be ‘in control’ and thereby reduce stress and anxiety. It also enables staff to communicate effectively, which can have a positive impact on improving the quality of the service provided, team working, etc. within the school.


PaperChase can deliver training to help your school’s key staff cultivate the skills to become effective Leaders and actively lead their staff team. The training explores Personalities and Leadership Styles, pressures of Leadership, etc. Good Leaders make all the difference to your school and its present and future success. It is recognised that ‘good schools’ have good Head teachers (the Leader of the school) and this is a key factor on whether a service is good or poor.

All training delivered by PaperChase is interactive and relies on delegates being actively involved in their learning. This makes the training highly effective and also allows staff to develop skills relevant to their school and work.

PaperChase aims to ensure that at the end of all training sessions, the staff team have developed a Short, Medium & Long Term Action Plan in order for the training to be easily implemented into the school.

Tailored training to meet the school's individual needs is also available.
