making the most of peep

peep programmes work best when managers and practitioners:

~  understand the nature and purpose of Peep programmes and delivery 

~  consider and discuss (early on) why and how they'll use the Peep programme 

 support / complete the Peep City & Guilds unit

~  use the log-in Members Area for the programme's Key Ideas, Topics, Session plans, Parent handouts etc.

~  support and/or have time to plan, deliver, review and follow-up Peep work  

~  are occasionally observed and/or observe Peep delivery (as a 'critical friend')

~  sometimes meet with Peep colleagues (within or outwith the organisation) to plan and review, and/or share ideas, challenges and good practice

~  make links with other disciplines to support Peep delivery, e.g. community learning, early years, parent services, health, schools and settings.

See below for further support ideas - via Peeple or a local Peep co-ordinator.

In some local authorities and organisations someone acts as a Peep co-ordinator or 'champion'. This may include some of the following:

 offering practitioners support and guidance with their Peep delivery and evaluation/ monitoring;
~  feeding into management/ strategic overview of how Peep delivery contributes to local support for families;
~  observing practitioners, and offering them support with Peep practitioner C&G accreditation;
 co-ordinating resources, paperwork and/or logistics;
~  co-ordinating local practitioner network meetings (e.g. 2-3 times a year);
 co-ordinating Peep Progression Pathway qualifications for parents/carers.
