The Inclusion Assistant
Are you responsible for training or supporting Teacher Assistants who work with young people with support needs in mainstream nurseries, schools and higher or further education?
This one day course will enable you to deliver a new TRAINING PACK, The Inclusion Assistant, devised and developed by Micheline Mason and Christine Burke. The packs aim is to develop competence in supporting the inclusion of young people who require one-to-one help in school.
NEXT COURSE DATES:
The training pack is unique in that it draws from the perspective of disabled adults and the Independent Living Movement, helping to create a pathway from school to a supported adult life, in the community, for people who will continue to need one to one assistance throughout their lives. Based on original research with young disabled people and their families, the pack has been trialled with great success in mainstream schools in East London.
I love this pack! I think it is well written,
clear, easy to understand and very readable. I like the emphasis on the facilitation
of relationships and on young people being able to direct their own support
"This is the first training I have done that has helped me understand my role"
I really liked the very clear re-definition of what independence is
There is an enormous need for this pack in the
market. There are materials which are familiar to those who undertake SEN
training, but they have been brought together with a clearer focus in terms
of developing choice making, enabling and providing a voice for young people
with high level needs

I can now see how I can do this - I wasnt sure where to start before

A very informative and challenging day
A very rewarding day
I enjoyed the whole day. The presentation was really good and interesting
I was surprised. I thought there was little relevance for me but it confirmed how much more I need to learn and initiate
I felt our profile didnt fit the module initially but soon found otherwise
Brilliant presentation. The whole experience was very positive
Far more thought-provoking than I expected
it was good to meet people from a range of settings all working towards the same goal
An inspiring training event
Excellent information provided by the trainers and a very full pack to take away that I can use at school
Great day. Very enjoyable and inspiring
