Jacquie brings new skills to Noah's Ark
Late last year, Noah’s Ark Project Worker Jacquie Simpson was a recipient of the annual Noah’s Ark Excellence in Practice Award.
The opportunity allowed Jacquie to spend a week at the Family and Infant Preschool Program (FIPP) in Morganton, North Carolina, to take part in training and learn from internationally renowned researchers in the field of early intervention and fidelity coaching. Jacquie was one of two Australians taking part.
I now have six months of learning ahead of me before I complete certification including; practice, self-reflection, submitting coaching logs and videos and attending web meetings.
Fidelity Coaching is a relatively new concept in the Australia early childhood intervention context, it is essentially about supporting practitioners and Noah’s Ark teams to develop and maintain the integrity of evidence-based practices.
I am looking forward to contributing what I have learned to enhance the quality of service we provide to children and families at Noah?s Ark.
Thank you to Noah’s Ark Board and Management for this wonderful opportunity, says Jacquie.
