Turnabout Programme Workshop
Turnabout Education provides practical ‘hands-on’ training for teachers and learning support assistants. Training is usually on-site at the school and is a full day for the staff being trained. Turnabout is usually delivered by teaching support staff. Turnabout on-site training primarily involves a ‘hands-on’ workshop during which staff learn and practice how to deliver the programme. Typically we train the Senco plus up to ten support staff. For larger numbers of attendees we provide additional trainers to maintain the effectiveness of the practical workshop activities.
In addition to the practical aspects, the training includes an appreciation of the characteristics of dyslexia and attention deficit as seen in the classroom. This is excellent Inset giving the participants a greater understanding of their pupils’ difficulties. These sessions are designed to assist the school in identifying suitable learners for the programme. Often, we follow the training course with an appreciation session for teaching staff - usually carried out as a ‘twilight’ session.
A brilliant course! Very well explained and demonstrated.
*Modelling! YES! - I love it when a concept is not only delivered verbally but physically too! I will be leaving this session with clarity!
*Theory ・I feel I understand the concepts well and the ideas behind it. Great!
Fantastic training! Very useful, clear information and it was fun. We look forward to introducing it to our children.
Inspiring course. Can't wait to get started. Delivered so that very understandable with good balance of how to do and actual doing. Love the practical activities!!!
I had a brilliant day & found it interesting & informative from start to finish!
This training really helped to give me a better understanding of the children I work with needs. I feel really inspired and can't wait to start implementing the ideas you've given us today!
Interesting day with a good balance of hands-on activities, information, discussion, videos. Clear delivery and excellent product knowledge.
I found the training very useful, the delivery was excellent (modelling, practical, able to ask questions). It was good to have the background knowledge of dyslexia and ADHD. Enjoyed the day, super resources, excellent training.
Very good. I have a lot of enthusiasm for this. The training was very well organised, the day went so quickly.
All staff engaged well with the programme and began to identify children who they thought would benefit from Turnabout. Well delivered in a timely manner. Good resources. Plenty of practical experiences. Friendly professional approach. Thank you.
Excellent course. I loved the table-top games and think they will help all the children as a class as well as on a one to one. Can't wait to get started.
A very well structured, informative and useful course. The very strong combination of theory and practice was especially effective. I feel that the staff involved in the training are highly motivated by the day. A great presenting and teaching team enabling us to ask questions, interject where we needed to and guide us through the whole system. A superb day. Thank you.
Possibly the best training I have ever been on. From start to finish the purpose of Turnabout was clear. The practical activities were self-explanatory and enjoyable. Assessment,recording sheets, resources and demonstrations were well thought through.
