Handling People with Special Needs Masterclass

This weeks course was held at Uplands Manor Primary School in Smethwick, West Midlands  from the 26th – 30th June 2017. It was a busy week with all the participants finishing the course achieving a pass and one, Samara, achieving a pass with merit. Janet said that “they were a lovely group and all worked really hard and I have never known a group to put so much work and preparation towards their presentations”.

Attending the course was Kayleigh Holsey, Dawna Lodge, Claire Jordan and Jodie Andrews all from Uplands Manor School and they were joined by Samara Cummings from Crownbridge School in Torfean and Gaynor Walters from Penn Hall School in Wolverhampton. 

It’s been a great week and I have learnt lots, thank you Janet for everything” – Claire Jordan.

Handling People with Special Needs Education Refresher Workshop

On the 12th June 2017, Janet Hunt spent the day at NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde to deliver a one day refresher course to four Key Trainers. Attending the course we had Elaine Allan, Eileen Myles and Ann Kendall all from NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde and they were joined by Beth McLafferty from Our Lady & St Patrick’s High School in West Dunbartonshire.

It was a busy day with Janet using the “success tree” approach to ensure that all areas requested by the Key Trainers were covered by the end of the day. These areas were far reaching from risk assessment to equipment and methods. Janet said that ” they are a strong group who worked well together“.
