I have monitored and been more observant of what has been happening in the classroom and outside, I’ve been more persistent and consistent. This has had a much bigger and positive outcome for the children I work with.

Teaching Assistant
Understanding and Supporting Behaviour

What became clear was the need to avoid rushing into larger targets. In my practice now I select much more manageable targets for these children, thus enabling them to approach their learning with realistic and reachable goals.

Teacher
Dyslexia

Improved my knowledge of ASD, and having the conversation with the tutor gave me more insight into working and long term memory of children with ASD. I've adapted how I give instructions with some of the children.

Other
Autism Spectrum Disorder

This course has helped me understand there are many different eye conditions. I am more aware of the individual daily challenges. I think I'm now in a better position to assist students and I have learned new support strategies. I would recommend this course to others.

Learning Support Assistant
Vision Impairment

My classroom practice, and that of my TA has become more effective. I have found the professional support and advice from the team, the forums and the group discussions with colleagues, useful and informative and will definitely be revisiting the course materials to support my practice.

Teacher
Speech, Language and Communication Needs

I have learnt to always approach each lesson as if it is the first with your student. Always have a fresh start. I have learnt to control low level disruption immediately to avoid confrontation and escalating behaviour.

Understanding and Supporting Behaviour

From implemented strategies, progress has already been seen to happen - demonstrating the usefulness of this training and the theory behind learning and classroom assessments and interventions.

Teaching Assistant
Learning Strategies

This training has made me aware of all the different learning theories and how each theory applies to certain students. It has made a big impact on targets that I set pupils, ensuring that they are SMART. It has also increased my confidence when feeding back to teachers and other agencies.

Teaching Assistant
Learning Strategies

This training has had a huge impact on how I communicate and teach learners with SLCN. I can identify individual learners needs and adapt lessons so that they can understand the tasks given to complete, feel confident in their own abilities and not be afraid to ask for help when needed.

Teaching Assistant
Speech, Language and Communication Needs

It really was fascinating thinking about how our senses help us learn, how we would feel if we didn't have those senses and how we would have to adapt. I feel it would greatly benefit the staff involved in the next academic year to do this course too.

Teaching Assistant
Multi-Sensory Impairment

The training has made me review interventions in conjunction with learning theory. This is a much more focused approach and I will be able to use it again in the future. I like to work with SMART target setting, as it helps me stay driven, so every opportunity to practise this is valuable.

Education Consultant
Learning Strategies

This training has helped me to refresh some of my thinking and practice. After teaching for so many years it has been good to come back to basics and back to theories and strategies to enable me to better meet my learners’ needs. I have become more confident in my knowledge around effective teaching and learning, being more comfortable with my decisions in this area.
