The Dyslexia Award - funded training opportunity for Sencos, Teachers and TAs in Nursery, Primary and Secondary schools/settings
2018-2019 Local Authority Funding for Accredited SpLD Training
This year we have an exciting new, funded, training opportunity developed in response to demand from SENCos, teachers and teaching assistants for a shorter, manageable alternative to the Level 5 course on dyslexia - ‘The Dyslexia Award’ devised and delivered in a unique partnership between Dyslexia Matters and Hertfordshire ISL Specific Learning Difficulties Outreach Team.
The online course and assessed tasks will take approx. 120 hours to complete over 6 – 9 months and will give candidates 12 x Level 5 credits.
Funding is available for 30 places for primary and secondary colleagues and, as part of our commitment to early intervention 10 funded places are also available to colleagues in nursery settings.
Applications must be fully completed and with the Head Teacher’s statement to Debbie.firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 6th July 2018
Aldenham Country Park - children's learning beyond the classroom and SEND facilities
Aldenham Renaissance CIC was awarded a 30 year lease and management contract to run the park on behalf of Herts Country Council. As part of this Hertfordshire Country Council and Aldenham Renaissance pledged to use their best endeavours to develop the education facilities for our schools, and in particular those pupils with SEND. Following an extensive refurbishment, the centre are now running the SEND Adventure Playground, an extensive indoor sensory play centre in the SEND Pavilion and wood cabins for educational use. The SEND facilities are suitable for both school visits and families with SEND children.
Aldenham County Park also runs curriculum mapped educational workshops in the Farm and Woodlands, Survival and Orienteering workshops, overnight camping and volunteering.
More information may be found on our Local Offer page
If you would like to visit the centre or to take a look at the facilities, please contact email@example.com
