Storyboards are a useful tool for effectively presenting a team’s work to a variety of audiences. At previous Learning Sessions we have always encouraged practitioners and teams to use these as a tool to visually display their improvement journey.
We want to support you to showcase your best work and therefore this year each Community Planning Partnership, including local authority, healthboard and other services contributing to the children’s services improvement work, are invited to submit up to 3 storyboards for use and display throughout the Learning Session. We encourage you to work together to think of the breadth of multi-agency and innovative work that you are undertaking to improve outcomes for children, young people, their families and communities.
A new feature of this year’s Learning Session will be the ‘Storyboard Spotlight Stage’, where applicants can put forward to have their storyboard selected to be presented during a breakout session. This session will involve a number of a rapid-fire 5 minute presentations by selected presenters in the poster area, shining a spotlight on their great work. This provides an opportunity for participants to engage with presenters, ask questions and share their own experiences. If you wish your storyboard to be considered, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by 18thOctober. Storyboards selected to present at the ‘Storyboard Stage’ will be notified on 19thOctober.
To make the most of the opportunity for you to share your work, we have provided you with a storyboard poster template which should support you to showcase a key piece of improvement work to good effect. .
We appreciate that it isn’t always easy to tell your improvement story and so we have included a couple of examples and step-by-step guidance to help create a fantastic poster.
This template should help to highlight your key learning and achievements and provide other delegates with a brief introduction to your project. Please include contact details so that they can follow up with you directly with additional questions.
To ensure that your story looks great in print format please use the guidance attached when completing the template. It is formatted specifically so that when it is printed in a larger scale the text and images are legible.
It is important to consider the following when choosing the right project to showcase:
- It should be work that is using Improvement Methodology
- It can be new work that is progressing well
- It can also be work that has been on-going over a longer timeframe
- It could showcase how a project has gone to scale.
Please submit your storyboard to email@example.com no later than 19 October 2018.
If you have any questions or require any support please contact your area CYPIC Improvement Advisor or firstname.lastname@example.org
