Whilst writing

  • There was a tension for me. I was worried about ‘reducing’ the concept of person centeredness within a one day training session.

Work that niace has done on pcp pca shows

Work that NIACE has done on PCP/PCA shows;

…..some providers are engaging with person-centred planning in creative and dynamic ways. However, many in post-16 education and training remain unclear in their understanding of person-centred planning and the part education should be playing in this process. Person-centred planning is often mistakenly identified as the same as Individual Learning Plans or one to one tutorials to discuss what an individual wants to learn.
