I began my career as a teacher in a mainsteam school over twenty five years ago then moved to work in a specialist early years setting. I've been an Early Years Area SENCO in two Local Authorities. Throughout my career I've met children, parents and professionals who have challenged my thinking, developed my knowledge and strenghened my belief that good practice for children with Special Educational Needs is good practice for all.
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 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 face to face or online 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. I live in Worcester but travel across the country and am a regular resident at Premier Inns!
All training I deliver contains a mixture of spoken delivery, film clips, practical activities and time to reflect on your current practice, there isn't any role play! You will be given an extensive range of handouts and email support following the session if you have any 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.
