I'm a teacher who's been lucky enough to work in mainstream and specialist settings for almost thirty years, including working for two Local Authorities as an Early Years Area SENCO. During that time I've met some wonderful children, parents and professionals who have taught me so much.
I provide a range of reasonably priced, high quality training for staff working with children in the Foundation Stage, focusing on all aspects of inclusion. I believe that good practice for children with Special Educational Needs is good practice for all children. I write and deliver training to meet your specific requirements, whether you need an overview or an in-depth knowledge of the subject.
It can be far more cost effective to book me to deliver training than to attend a course as an individual. I take a maximum of twenty participants so the cost can be shared between your setting and invited colleagues. Prices start at just £20 per participant for a whole day of training, with you providing the venue.
All training I deliver contains a mixture of spoken delivery, film clips, practical activities (which do not include role play!) and time to reflect on your current practice. You will be given an extensive range of handouts and email support following the session if you have further queries.
I have a DBS Enhanced Certificate and am an ELKLAN Speech and Language Tutor. I volunteer for one morning a week at a local pre-school as I missed working with children so much. Please contact me for further information, I'll be delighted to hear from you.
