West Donegal Irish college criticised for lack of child protection policies

first_imgA DONEGAL Irish summer college has been condemned in an official Government report for failing to have child protection policies in place.The Department of Education Inspector also described leadership at Coláiste Chú Chulainn in Gaoth Dobhair as ‘weak’.The college had 79 students on the course when it was inspected on June 6 this year. The Inspector’s report has just been released.And it is damning in its assessment on the total lack of child protection measures, saying the college had failed in all five of the department’s rules.The college – which changed its name recently to Colaiste Ghaoth Dobhair – failed to have all staff Garda vetted, didn’t inform staff of its policies and didn’t have any child protection statement in place.“The practice of the college did not comply with checks 1,2,3,4 and 5 and therefore the college was not compliant with the checks that were made during the inspection visit,” said the Inspector. “The quality of the course’s management and leadership was weak; there were significant deficiencies in mandatory policies and procedures.“Overall, the quality of teaching and learning was satisfactory; students were encouraged to use Irish but they were not given sufficient opportunities to consolidate the newly acquired language.”The Inspector said appropriate planning of lessons was not available during the June inspection and there was no evidence that progress was made on the recommendations of the last inspection in 2016.The college was given the chance to respond to the latest round of criticism before the report was published and these were included in the inspector’s report.The Steering Committee said it would correct all its mistakes. It promised that liaison teams would be named, that staff would attend an in-house course five weeks before college and that each staff member would be given a folder containing school policies. It also said all adults would be garda vetted.The college also said it had applied for funding to Udaras na Gaeltachta for new premises for 2020 following criticism in 2016 and 2019 for lack of resources and use of IT during lessons.The inspector did find an enjoyable atmosphere and a good relationship between students and teachers and students praised the college during a follow-up focus group.West Donegal Irish college criticised for lack of child protection policies was last modified: November 21st, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Linear Tools for a Nonlinear Conversations

first_imgMany of the common tools we use in sales assume that the conversation is linear. Sales conversations, however, are rarely ever linear. Instead, they tend to wander, even if you do your best to nudge them in a certain direction. Because sales conversations are nonlinear, the tools should also be nonlinear.The Linear DemoA demonstration, especially one around software, often starts with the home screen and works through every function, every feature, and every benefit. It starts at the beginning, and shows every possible use case, leaving nothing out, and leaving no chance that the person being subjected to this form of torture felt like something was missing. But something was missing: engagement.There isn’t a great reason to provide a demo in a linear fashion. Not every function or feature or use case matters to the person to whom you are presenting. If it’s a decision-maker, it’s unlikely that they care about anything more than the outcomes they’re trying to achieve, and possibly some function that is critically important to them in their role.Instead of driving your prospect through the entire program, a better place to start is with an understanding of what they need, why it’s important to them, and how they are going to go about deciding to purchase whatever it is you sell. You can then engage in a nonlinear conversation around the things that will help you win their business (something you might describe as “a sales call”).The Linear Slide DeckNo law requires a slide deck to start with a picture of your corporate office, followed by a list of your locations, followed by all the big company logos you’ve won, followed by your product and service offerings. There should be a law that prevents a slide deck from following this format. The design is about proving your credibility without you having to know anything about why your dream client should change, how they should change, and what they need to do to drive their business forward. Your client cares about their company and their clients and their offerings, and they hope you can help them with these things.The challenge with a linear slide deck is that often the person delivering the presentation believes they need to start at the beginning with the first slide, discussing every slide until slide 108, the last slide in the deck. Sales conversations don’t transpire this way (thankfully). Instead, questions get asked and answered, ideas are pursued, concerns are surfaced, and new questions get asked, and more insight and ideas follow.A slide deck with the menu as the first slide, and a logo at the bottom right corner of every other slide that acts as a link back to the menu, allows you to engage in a nonlinear conversation. If the client wants to know more about something, a single click takes you back to the menu so you can share the necessary images, graphics, ideas, and insights.There isn’t a good reason to pretend that a nonlinear sales process is linear. There’s even less of a reason to use tools that lock in that linearity.last_img read more
