Which level is best for my experience and knowledge?
I like to be able to tell participants the potential level the session will be delivered at. This helps participants make an informed choice about what to attend.
So, each participant can decide which level is right for them [which may vary during the day!]
Play: I [the participant] am weary and want to take part in something enjoyable which will not tax my brain. There are no levels and it is just about participation.
Play Easy: I [the participant] am relatively new to the world of play and playwork, so please keep it simple and help me along my journey to understanding. Help me along the track and keep the vehicle calm and steady.
Play Explorer: I [the participant] have been around for a while, done some training and studying but there are concepts that I still struggle with and others I want to be refreshed about. I want to be challenged and taken on a voyage of discovery but without making my head explode!
Play Harder: I [the participant]
have done a lot, read a lot and have a few ideas of my own. I want to take my learning further and to be stretched in my thinking. My technical and philosophical playwork base is strong but I am like a sponge, keen to know more and really wanting to be pushed and pulled in new directions with new ways of thinking. This is my journey.
