1 Day Refresher – Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council

Today Janet Hunt was in Oldbury, in the West Midlands delivering a Handling People with Special Needs Education Refresher Workshop to the Meadows School College of Sport. This course is for those who have already taken part in our train the trainer course and the time has come to complete refresher training. On the course for the whole day we had Leigh Hawkins, Lorraine Cowan and Caroline Potts all of whom were from the host venue.

Our trainer said this about the day;

” We had a focus for the day, and that was looking at risk assessments. The task was to choose a child that was proving difficult to transfer – they all rose the the challenge. By doing this activity it demonstrated problem solving, constructing an assessment and practical skills. They are a great team and I felt very positive about their abilities.

We had some great feedback from Lorraine saying;

“I really enjoyed reviewing risk assessments again, but overall Janet delivered some excellent training to us – she has brilliant training skills. Thank You!”
