Horizons College

Horizons College 14-18 Sept 20


The second course this week was again a five day Handling People with Special Needs Train the Trainer course but this time for staff who work with young adults rather than children. The course was held at Horizons College in Swindon from the 14th – 18th September 2020. We had two participants for this course, Sarah Finaughty and Joanna Ward. Both Joanna and Sarah work really well together and Jan (Centaur Trainer) said that they will make a great team once delivering the training in the college.

This weeks first course was held at Lady Zia Wernher Primary School in Luton from the 14th – 18th September 2020. This course was a five day train the trainer course for three staff from the school to enable them to deliver the Handling People with Special Needs Education training resource to their staff along side the already established training team in the school. Attending the course we had Sharon Napper, Jeannette Sharp and Louise Willis. All three participants worked really hard throughout the week and delivered great presentations. Unfortunately Jeannette had to leave early on the final day of the course before the photograph below was taken but they found a suitable stand in for her!

All three participants attending the course we very keen to take part in the training and worked well together during the full week, even with the difficult circumstances. They were equipped with all the necessary PPE and followed all the guidance. I am pleased to say that all three successfully passed the course at the end of the week, well done.
