This title builds on the success of "Core Skills for Children's Work" (Barnabas 2006). It includes six modules, providing creative and extended thought-provoking training to church-based children's leaders in six key areas of working with children including: coping with transitions, integrating children with special needs, dealing with challenging behaviour, considering global concerns, advocacy and mentoring young leaders. Material complements and extends the foundational training for children's workers within the Methodist Church and United Reformed Church. This title offers an ecumenically recognised training resource. It is suitable for: people responsible for training children's workers e.g. Sunday School teachers; clergy and church ministers; those responsible for church-based children's work; and, all those who have used "Core Skills for Children's Work". "More Core Skills for Children's Work" follows on from the increasingly popular inter-denominational modular training scheme, "Core Skills for Children's Work".
The material provides creative and extended training for children's leaders across the spectrum of church traditions and provides extended learning skills for all those involved with church-based children's work, including young leaders. Intended for use by trainers, each of the six stand-alone modules explores a key issue arising from children's work and is highly accessible as one-off two-hour training programmes for children's leaders within the local church. Web-based resources to complement each module are available on the core skills website.
