Course Learning Objectives

  • Discover the evolution of key worker to key person.
  • Explore how our interactions as a key person play a fundamental role in life-long learning.
  • Investigate how attachment theory can be applied to the key person approach.

Within this training, we explore how the role of the key person has evolved to include working with both children and their families. It is much more than just meeting our children’s care needs.

In the Birth to Five Matters literature, the importance of the ‘Triangle of Trust’ is mentioned. The presence of a key person helps a child to feel emotionally secure when they are away from home and provides a reassuring point of contact for parents.

“You leave a legacy of relationships that will never disappear. It’s the connection. It is the relationship. Every child deserves an adult that understands the power of connection and helps them to be the best that they can possibly be. They deserve a champion!”

Rita Pierson, 2013
