Consultancy for Schools

We can provide specialist professionals to act as consultants to schools, for example we can mentor Special Educational Needs Co-ordinators (SENCos), give advice about the provision and practices for learners with dyslexia, advise teachers on creating inclusive classrooms and set up screening procedures. We can also support schools in understanding the current Code of Practice and SEN reforms and advise in preparation for OFSTED inspection.

We offer tailor made In-service sessions for schools, colleges and businesses. We can also offer ITT support to meet the requirements for SEND training.

Professional Mentoring

At Helen Arkell we offer a mentoring service to Level 7 Graduates.

After you have successfully completed the Level 7 course, you will be assessing and writing diagnostic assessment reports independently - this can be an exciting, yet daunting experience. You may like to have access to a mentor, who will discuss and provide guidance and reassurance during this process.  

Our mentoring service would allow you to speak to one of our professional staff about an assessment that you are due to undertake, or have already carried out.  You can also discuss the report that you are writing, or have already written. Mentoring may take the form of email/face-to-face/telephone contact.

You can decide how much support you would like to receive – let us support you as you gain more experience.  This service is charged at £80 an hour, or part thereof.  

If you wish to take advantage of this service, please call our administration team on 01252 792400.  They will find a mentor that is available to speak to you and arrange a mutually convenient appointment.  

Let us continue to support you – you will be provided with high quality professional feedback and guidance.
