We can help schools and colleges plan your next INSET training day.
We offer bespoke training sessions for your teaching staff.
Specific programmes can be tailor-made to suit differing audiences and the time available. Often schools come together for these in-service days to help spread the cost and to allow networking. We tailor each and every in-service session to the needs of the client.
At Helen Arkell we have many years of experience in delivering bespoke training. Consultations or meetings can be arranged to discuss your organisation’s specific needs and/or gaps in knowledge and provision.
Our in-service sessions can take the form of half day, whole day or twilight meetings to suit your requirements. Likewise we can cater for differing numbers of staff or delegates, ranging from a small SEN department to broader staff gatherings. We can offer one off sessions and short courses.
Areas covered include:
- Understanding Dyslexia – the latest thinking
- Thinking Skills and Language to Enhance Learning
- Brain Based learning – accelerated learning and a critique of learning styles
- Language in the Curriculum – non verbal difficulties, and topics such as Study Skills, Dyscalculia and Dyspraxia
- An Introduction to SpLDs (Specific Learning Difficulties) and Dyslexia
