[2 NOV 98] WARWICKSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL PRESS RELEASE
Eurovisitors Check Out Health Education In Warwickshire

European visitors from more than 20 countries, including Croatia, Ukraine and Finland, will be heading for Warwick this week, to attend an international training course co-ordinated by the Central bureau for Educational Visits and Exchanges.

The week-long course runs from November 3 – 8 and takes the theme Healthy Schools, Healthy Pupils. It is part of the Council of Europe’s in-service training programme for teachers, trainers and school inspectors and is supported by Warwickshire County Council’s Education Department.

The course will outline the changing agenda for personal, social and health education in schools, exploring such issues as ‘the health – promoting school’, citizenship education and education for parenthood.

The training will be based at the Lord Leycester Hotel, Warwick, the main course venue. Delegates will get the chance to visit local primary and secondary schools, across Warwickshire, as part of their course.

"The idea is to let delegates experience a normal school morning," said Lyz Mitchell, Inspector for Personal & Social education in Warwickshire. "We’ll get feedback from the visitors, on their impressions of education here, at the end of the course."

The course director is Jane Jenks, vice chair of the national advisory committee on PSHE (Personal, Social & Health Education), who is currently playing a prominent role in drafting recommendations for new Government guidelines.
