Backed by the British Accreditation Council (BAC)

We are delighted to have been officially recognised as a centre of learning and excellence by the British Accreditation Council (BAC).

Siobhan Mellor, director of Real Training:

‘We’re happy with BAC’s thorough analysis of the learning experience for our delegates – from the booking process, admin and finance systems as well as the teaching, tutoring and learning that we offer through our courses. We are pleased that they have given us their stamp of recognition for excellent training. We work hard to continually build on the strengths of our training for professionals in education and know how important it is to deliver excellent training for teachers, particularly as these are the very people who strive to deliver great learning in their own education settings.

‘BAC’s inspection – with their experience of accrediting training across the UK – has recognised Real Training’s outstanding areas of practice. We will continue to improve (it’s in our nature as educational psychologists to keep looking for the next steps!), but, at this moment, we want to stand back and feel proud of our BAC accreditation seal of approval.’

Preparing for the new Code of Practice
March 2014

Editorial

Welcome to Real’s first monthly e-zine for the SEND practitioner. Over the coming year, we will be looking at the most essential areas of SEND practice, combining our educational expertise with the latest insights from leading SEND experts and practitioners across the education spectrum. In this issue, we are delighted to feature a Q&A on the forthcoming Code of Practice with renowned SEND expert Brian Lamb OBE, alongside an article exploring a group of SENCOs’ thoughts on, and preparations for, the new Code.

It’s a daunting time for SEND practitioners, particularly given the many other major structural changes that are taking place in education. With that in mind, we want this newsletter to be a good source of free information on the most pressing issues faced by the SEND practitioner. So, if there is anything that you want us to write about, are unsure of, or would like to comment on, please do get in touch. It would be good to hear from you.

Kind regards,

Edward Farrow

Helping Sandwell to embrace LEAN thinking

In 2013, Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council’s business change unit approached us to help them communicate the unique benefits of LEAN across their organisation. We needed to simultaneously effect LEAN cultural change whilst creating staff and management buy in. Our unique e-learning and e-technology platforms, our extensive experience of Continuing Professional Development (CPD), and our psychology-inspired approach, enabled us to rise to the challenge. We developed a LEAN-thinking CPD online course within a few months – engendering practice-led change across the council and winning hearts and minds in the process.
