Planning for Support Staff training:
All our training is tailored to the needs of each setting. This means that the training to each setting is contextualised to the settings profile of need, i.e. mainstream school; SEN/ALN school; assisted living support, youth centres. Our initial approach is to start with an initial audit around the experience of support staff. All our training is followed up with a training session with all staff in the setting.
