We are very busy at the moment delivering training in the schools after a testing year for all the staff working in education. Today we were asked to go along to Kingsley School in Kettering to deliver another one day Handling People with Special Needs Education refresher workshop. The school only has one Key Trainer on site at present however they were happy to allow us to open the course up to other Key Trainers from the surrounding area. Attending today’s course we had Rachel Morris and Vicki Moss both from Woodlands School in Luton, Sara Cullingford-Agnew from Kingsley School, Lisa Esser from Lady Zia Wernher School also in Luton, Alison Crispin-Bennet from The Special Education and Training Support Service in London Borough of Redbridge and Nikki Deacon from Westfield School in Hereford.
