Real Training Free Courses – Develop your SEN Skills

 

Real Training Free Courses

This year, Real Training has partnered with Whole School SEND to offer free, open-access courses for all educational professionals. These courses are part of a wider Department for Education initiative to ensure that every child and young person with SEND can maximise their potential.

These courses are all delivered via our online platform Campus Online, meaning material can be covered wherever there is internet access, and whenever time allows.

 

Effective SEN Support Provision – Middle Leaders Course

Launched in January 2020 in partnership with Whole School SEND, the Effective SEN Support Provision – Middle Leaders course is a free-to-access course, open to all educational professionals. It outlines the principles of creating effective SEN support provision for middle leaders in all educational settings.

This Effective SEN Support Provision – Middle Leaders course offers the following benefits:  

  • Understand how middle leaders can support strategic SEND provision while identifying opportunities to coordinate with other leaders in the school
  • Consider how effectively whole school approaches are implemented in your subject area
  • Reflect on how line management can support effective SEND provision: Identify strategies and resources to support colleagues, including early career teachers, within a department to develop their practice
  • Reflect on how subject specific content can be presented to pupils with SEND
  • Consider how assessment and tracking can support the identification of pupils with SEND
  • Assess the learning environment for pupils with different needs, then identify and implement key strategies and resources that will support them

Delivered fully online through our Campus Online platform, this CPD course will take 15 hours in total. Remember, though, you can take as long as you want. This course is free, and you will have access to its content for one year, following your enrolment.

Feedback from past delegates

“Because I work as a SEN middle leader, this course was great because it made me evaluate what I was doing and how I was doing it. I loved the additional documents which are made available through this course as well as the analytical look at SEN support.”

“As I am the SENCO at my school, I wanted to see how useful this would be to my staff. I feel there are lots of things that would benefit NQTs and some of my middle leaders that need further guidance on how to support SEND pupils. For myself, I particularly liked the section on TA deployment that I could use to support my discussion when training staff on how they could do this more effectively.”

“This course has given me a clear insight on the role of the middle leader and how to manage the expertise in the inclusive school.”

“It has allowed me to reflect on areas that can be further developed within my SEND faculty to continue to support students in the best possible way.”

Online SEND Reviewer Training course

Whole School SEND’s Online SEND Reviewer Training course provides a framework that enables educational professionals to evaluate the effectiveness of current SEND provision. This is through a structured self-evaluation and peer review with another educational setting. The aim is to identify areas of potential improvement, and create and review improvement plans.

It is the only fully-online version of the SEND Reviewer Training course. It will enable more people within your setting to conduct quality reviews of SEND provision, thus empowering them to improve their practices.

The theoretical content is delivered fully online, hosted on our bespoke virtual learning environment, Campus Online. Furthermore, the course is free, and you will have access to its content for one year, following your enrolment.

How will you and your setting benefit?

As mentioned, the goal of this course is to enable educational professionals within a setting to understand, review and improve their SEND provision through self and peer-to-peer assessment. This results in a strong and supportive community of SEN professionals, providing the support and encouragement to continually improve SEN provision.

By completing this free course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the aims of the SEND Review Process
  • Engage in communities of practice – self-sustaining professional communities supporting each other to raise attainment for all
  • Use the Review to drive school improvement in SEN provision
  • Confidently and effectively execute all stages of the SEND Review Process

How to register your interest

If you have any further questions regarding either of these courses, please don’t hesitate to contact us on info@realgroup.co.uk, or call +44(0) 1273 35 80 80, and we’d be happy to help.

FREE Online SEND Reviewer Training course

Online SEND Reviewer TrainingReal Training and Whole School SEND’s FREE Online SEND Reviewer Training course

At the end of 2019, Real Training and Whole School SEND partnered to offer the enormously successful, free Effective SEN Support Provision – Middle Leaders course. We are delighted to announce the launch of a second free course, aimed at all educational professionals – the Online SEND Reviewer Training. This course is now available to access through Campus Online.

It is the only fully-online version of the SEND Reviewer Training course. It will enable more people within your setting to conduct quality reviews of SEND provision, thus empowering them to improve their practices.

About the Online SEND Reviewer Training course

The SEND Review course provides a framework that enables educational professionals to evaluate the effectiveness of current SEND provision. This is through a structured self-evaluation and peer review with another educational setting. The aim is to identify areas of potential improvement, and create and review improvement plans.

The theoretical content is delivered fully online, hosted on our bespoke virtual learning environment, Campus Online. Furthermore, the course is free, and you will have access to its content for one year, following your enrolment.

How will you and your setting benefit?

As mentioned, the goal of this course is to enable educational professionals within a setting to understand, review and improve their SEND provision through self and peer-to-peer assessment. This results in a strong and supportive community of SEN professionals, providing the support and encouragement to continually improve SEN provision.

By completing this free course, you will develop an understanding the aims of the SEND Review Process, use the review to drive school improvement and execute the six stages of the SEND Review Process.

The course structure

Delegates will be paired with another participant, known as ‘SEND Professional Partners’, to train together online, and subsequently to undertake the school reviews together. This enables peer-to-peer use of the SEND Review Tool across two (or more) settings, and facilitates development of professional practice between the ‘SEND Professional Partners’.

Using the Whole School SEND Review Tool and with the support of the course ‘Professional Partner’, delegates will undertake a review of their own school SEND. They will then reciprocate this process in the partner’s school. In addition, we ensure that you are allocated an appropriate partner where you will be able to share similar challenges, experiences and best practice.

Within this structure, SEND Professional Partners will work together as ‘critical friends’, reviewing each other’s provision, learning from good practice and supportively challenging areas for development.

‘SEND Professional Partners’ will arrange to visit each other’s provision to support each other undertaking the review in each school. Where geographical or other factors preclude travel, the review discussions can be undertaken remotely via video conferencing to discuss practice, gather evidence, share good practice from other settings and think through areas of the framework which are not yet demonstrated. Where possible, we aim to partner you with participants from a similar setting (e.g. primary, secondary, special and alternative provision) as well as geographical location.

Am I eligible?

This course is aimed at SENCOs and SEN leaders working in educational settings, looking for the necessary tools to work through the various stages of SEND reviews (preparatory, during and post-review). From there, they will consider and action the outcomes in an effective and meaningful way.

How to book

Simply visit the Online SEND Reviewer Training page on our website, where you can pre-register your interest. It takes a matter of seconds to do, with no complicated forms to complete. We will provide you with your login to Campus Online, and you will be able to access the course as soon as you have this.

Professional Tutoring Partnership appointed to deliver tutoring for the National Tutoring Programme

Professional Tutoring Partnership LogoThe Professional Tutoring Partnership (PTP) has been appointed to deliver dedicated tuition to over 4,500 disadvantaged children. This partnership brings together extensive experience in the education of pupils with special educational needs. The Professional Tutoring Partnership is run by Real Group Ltd in collaboration with Patoss, British Dyslexia Association, Dyslexia Action, The Dyslexia Guild and Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity. It will work alongside 31 other organisations to offer tutoring (subsidised by 75 per cent), as well as training, support and mentoring to tutors themselves, to schools across England.

We are delighted to be centrally involved in this exciting and important initiative.

The National Tutoring Programme is part of the government’s investment in schools to help underprivileged children to reduce the learning gap to their peers.  The school closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic have exacerbated this gap. Distance learning has been particularly challenging for those with specific learning difficulties, and those without access to adequate learning tools.

The Partnership underwent a rigorous assessment and review process. It met and exceeded criteria including their ability to work with schools delivering curriculum relevant tutoring and scope to reach as many disadvantaged pupils as possible. It will work within primary, secondary and special schools across East England, London, North East, North West, South East, South West and the West Midlands.

Dr Mark Turner, Managing Director of Real Group*, and Project Director of the Professional Tutoring Partnership said:

“We’re so excited to join the national effort to widen access to high-quality tutoring for disadvantaged pupils who need it most. Our organisation underwent a rigorous criteria assessment and we’re now ready to deliver high-quality tutoring to complement the incredible work going on in classrooms up and down the country. We can’t wait to start making a difference to those who need it most.”

Alison Farmer, Educational Psychologist and part of the PTP Management Team adds “Effective tuition changes children’s perception of themselves as learners.  I have observed the change that this makes to the confidence and enthusiasm for learning in school that this brings for young people.”

For more information on the Professional Tutoring Partnership can be found on our website.

* Real Group is a group of companies which includes Real Training, Dyslexia Action, The Dyslexia Guild, as well as Real Psychology, Real e-Learning and Dyslexia Action Shop.

An Interview with Priya Shah – MEd SEND

What does graduating from this course mean to you on a personal and a professional level?

On both a personal level and a professional level, acquiring an M.Ed in SEND after 22 years as a teacher has really raised my confidence in general, whether it be listening for the sake of listening to gain all perspectives of an idea or argument, or responding after critically analysing the information (in oral or written form, or writing professional reports, or carrying out action research, etc.

What made you choose the Real Training courses over other options?

I was looking to gain membership on Register for Qualified Test Users (RQTU) with the British Psychological Society (BPS). I found the CPT3A course online. As I work overseas, Real Training offered a user-friendly online platform and the turn-around time for replies to emails or queries was very quick. Also, I found that all the tutors I had were educational psychologists which have a lot to offer in terms of knowledge, experience and wisdom. The school that I work in then approached me and encouraged me to continue courses to achieve a Masters. And so I did!

What was your experience of learning with Real Training?

The online platform was easy to use and the readings and videos were relevant to my work, thus the experience of learning was pleasant and interesting yet very rigorous. The amount of work to be done was vast but manageable once one gets organized.

How have the courses helped make an impact at school?

I have used the skills of administering standardized tests and writing reports for external exam boards from the CPT3A course and the students have thus benefitted from exam access accommodations.

I have utilized the knowledge and skills from the NASENCO course for my role as the Learning Support Case Manager of grade 11 and 12 and as the untitled team leader of our Learning Support department in the high school and work very closely with the Student Support Services Coordinator of the school as well as the grade level leaders who manage the Response to Intervention framework.

The Social, Emotional Learning course was a great learning experience and the knowledge gained has enhanced my skills as a teacher and advisor. It has been particularly useful in these unusual times of COVID-19 when we went virtual.

The Enquiry-based research module was excellent as I got exposure to action research and got to investigate the efficacy of an online math intervention in terms of raising mathematical resilience of students with needs in an international setting using the RADIO framework. This has helped me as a co-teacher in math classes.

How have the courses helped develop you as an educational professional and what do you hope to achieve with the new knowledge/skills in the future?

My personal goal next academic year is to develop Social Emotional Learning in all my work in school, especially as we return to the school building on September 1st after the virtual learning environment since March 23rd. I have already started a virtual Meditation course for students for our optional summer school. As a lifelong learner, I am learning more and more about meditation and how it helps both professionally as a teacher and in my personal life as well.

How has the experience changed your view on continued professional development for your own career?

This experience has made me see that I can step out of my comfort zone in terms of professionally developing my own career. As all my tutors have been educational psychologists, I feel like I am ready to take the next step and pursue a doctorate in educational psychology. I completed my BSc (Hons) Psychology in the UK in 1993 and wanted to become an educational psychologist after that. In those days one also had to have Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and a minimum of 2 years of teaching before applying for a Masters in Educational Psychology. I became a teacher and loved it so much that I stuck to it for 22 years. Now things have changed. One does not need to be a qualified teacher to pursue a career as an educational psychologist in the UK but one does need some experience with working with children or young people and then one pursues a 3-year Doctorate in Educational Psychology. As I do not live in the UK anymore and have responsibilities of taking care of a family overseas, I cannot go to the UK to train as an educational psychologist at the moment. I have yet to find a rigorous blended online course to fit my needs to pursue a course that will qualify me as an educational psychologist. My only wish now is that Real Training develops an online program that one can pursue to qualify as a working educational psychologist. If they do, I would have no hesitation in taking it up!

Real Group’s Dyslexia Action launches a NEW CPD Short Course – The Emotionally Connected Classroom!

The Emotionally Connected ClassroomMany schools have been thinking about how they manage transitions sensitively and kindly for their pupils and staff. Recent evidence provided by Optimus Education and the Education Endowment Foundation has revealed the importance of providing teachers and senior leaders opportunities to continue their professional development (CPD) to help support pupils with social, emotional, and mental health needs. Over the past months, the education support team at our sister company, Dyslexia Action, has been working on new CPD courses to allow professionals to develop and enhance their current skills and understanding of Social, Emotional, and Mental Health (SEMH).  This week, they launched their first CPD SEMH course, The Emotionally Connected Classroom, with the first cohort beginning on 18 November.

The Emotionally Connected Classroom

This Level 5 unit aims to provide an understanding of the impact of emotions on the thinking brain and its implications for learning. It aims to provide an introduction to key elements of current research and practice in mentalisation theory (understanding the mental state of oneself and others) and emotional coaching. The importance of connectedness and relationships is emphasised throughout. For more information on this course, please click here.

How is The Emotionally Connected Classroom online course delivered?

The Emotionally Connected Classroom online course will be delivered on Real Group’s Campus Online learning environment. Campus Online offers you the flexibility to organise your time to fit around your professional and personal commitments.  It also saves you the time and expense of travel and classroom attendance.

Although the course is fully online, you will be supported every step of the way by an experienced tutor and have opportunities to read and contribute to the discussion forum on the course site. The forums help participants to learn, test out, develop, and refine ideas.

Participants joining Campus Online will be given access to a wide range of e-learning resources. These include presentations, articles, exercises, videos, and follow-up activities and tasks for participants to carry out.

Accreditation 

The Relating Classroom online unit has been submitted for accreditation which is due to be awarded by The CPD Standards Office in November 2020.

Progression 

The Emotionally Connected Classroom is part of Dyslexia Action’s Level 5 SEMH CPD Programme. Eight further units focused on SEMH are currently under development.

How do I register for the November cohort?

The Emotionally Connected Classroom is available to book for the 18 November cohort. To register, please access the Dyslexia Action online booking form here. Alternatively, please feel free to email Dyslexia Action or call on +44(0) 1784 222304 if you have any questions.

Deadlines for NASENCO, iSENCO, MEd and NPQ September cohort dates extended to Friday 18 September

 
September Cohort Dates ExtendedWe have been listening carefully to what schools have been saying about how the beginning of the new academic year has been going, and we fully understand the additional challenges they are facing. As a result, our September cohort dates will be extended to Friday 18 September, in order to take the pressure off of educational settings and avoid as much as possible, delegates who wish to start this month from missing out. Please note, this booking extension does not affect the course submission deadlines.

This extension applies to the following courses and qualifications:

How are the courses delivered? 

The courses are delivered online through our interactive learning platform, Campus Online with the support of an online tutor. An overview of Campus Online’s main features can be found here.

I would like to register for your September cohort, how do I proceed?

You only have to have completed our online booking form by the cohort deadline date of Friday 18 September (17:00 BST), which takes just a couple of minutes to complete. Once submitted, you will have until the end of the month to complete your registration and make the first payment. If joining our September cohort is not possible, it is possible to register to start your next course in January or in May.

NASENCO Award – Ensure your learning environment’s SEN Provision is prepared for the new academic year with Real Training

Ensure your learning environment’s SEN Provision is prepared for the new academic year with Real Training

This coming academic year promises to bring with it challenges that are unprecedented in modern times. Pupils returning to their educational settings will be experiencing a mixture of excitement, anxiety, confusion and relief as things return to an albeit amended version of normal. According to numerous news reports, pupils with special educational needs have suffered more than most during the lockdown, and it has never been so important to ensure that SEN provisions are in place and ready to fire on all cylinders.

If your setting has aspiring SENCOs who want to take the next step in their career with the National Award for SEN Coordination (NASENCO) qualification, you’ve just recruited to the role, or if your existing SENCO wishes to update their skills and knowledge, then Real Training has the perfect solution.

 

Real Training’s NASENCO course – Fully-supported distance learning

Given the unique situation learning environments find themselves in at the beginning of this new academic year, we understand that having staff members, particularly from the SEN  departments, take time out of school to study might be less than desirable. Through our proprietary training platform, Campus Online, and our extensive tutor base, delegates have access to all of the course material and full tutor support wherever they have internet access. There are no face to face sessions to attend at a local college or university. 

In addition, with the exception of the course end date, there are no internal deadlines for course assignments, meaning delegates can dip in and out of the course as and when their schedule allows. There is only one, two-day external placement, so the majority of assignments can be done within your setting, which carries the additional benefit that positive changes can be implemented even before the course is completed. We believe this offers a uniquely flexible qualification that has a minimal impact on the delegate’s work and home life, and in turn, a minimal impact on their educational setting.

 

What our NASENCO delegates say about our cours

Don’t just take our word for it though. See what our delegates think of us below.

In 2020 so far…

  • 98% of our delegates rated Real Training’s NASENCO course as ‘good’ or ‘very good’.
  • 95% rated tutor support as ‘good’ or ‘very good’.
  • 98% rated the extent to which the course met their developmental priorities as ‘good’ or ‘very good’.

“I have enjoyed this course and found it hugely beneficial.”Bridget Marshall

“This course has been made to support busy SENCos and professionals, with the understanding that learning can be done smoothly and concisely through the role.”Julia Findlay

“An amazing course. I loved how accessible it was. I could work in the evenings/ weekends/ holidays etc. It fitted around my workload easily as there are no formal deadlines apart from the one a year on from when you start. As everyone’s workloads are different this is ideal. There were no university visits so no time off of work. The website was easy to use and navigate around. My Tutor was fantastic, and always available for support. I would really recommend booking a course with Real Training.”Laura Phillips

 

Our September cohort closes on 18 September

If you have someone in your setting for whom you believe the NASENCO qualification is relevant, all they need to do is complete our online booking form by 5pm on Friday 18 September to be included in our September cohort. We don’t require payment at the time of booking; to start this month, we simply require completed application forms and an initial payment by the end of the month.

If you have any questions regarding the course and eligibility for staff members, please don’t hesitate to contact us either by email at info@realgroup.co.uk or by phone on +44 (0) 1273 35 80 80.

iSENCO – Ensure your international learning environment’s SEN Provision is prepared for the new academic year with Real Training

Ensure your learning environment’s SEN Provision is prepared for the new academic year with Real Training

This coming academic year promises to bring with it challenges that are unprecedented in modern times across the world. Pupils returning to their educational settings will be experiencing a mixture of excitement, anxiety, confusion and relief as things return to an albeit amended version of normal. According to numerous news reports, pupils with special educational needs have suffered more than most during the lockdown, and it has never been so important to ensure that SEN provisions are in place and ready to fire on all cylinders.

If your setting has aspiring SENCOs who want to take the next step in their career with the International Award for SEN Coordination (iSENCO) qualification, you’ve just recruited to the role, or if your existing SENCO wishes to update their skills and knowledge, then Real Training has the perfect solution, wherever you are based.

 

Real Training’s iSENCO course – Fully-supported distance learning, tailored to international needs

The requirement of the National Award for SEN Coordination (NASENCO) to have Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) or Qualified Teacher Learning & Skills (QTLS) status can be a hurdle to gaining the skills and knowledge the course affords. In addition, the NASENCO course focuses on UK-based legislation which isn’t always directly relevant to international settings.

This is why Real Training has developed the International Award for SEN Coordination (iSENCO). We took the time to consult with international schools and experts to tailor the course to meet the needs of those working in an international setting. As a result, iSENCO encompasses localised legislative frameworks, the impact on learning of third culture kids, the intersection of academic vs social language in EAL students and much more. For this reason, iSENCO is a much more relevant course to those working in an international setting. Crucially for many of our delegates, there is no requirement to hold QTS or QTLS status to enrol on this course, opening up the opportunity to develop skills and knowledge in SEN to more educators.

In addition, with the exception of the course end date, there are no internal deadlines for course assignments, meaning delegates can dip in and out of the course as and when their schedule allows. If your setting is a multi-level school, then all of the assignments can be done within your setting, which carries the additional benefit that positive changes can be implemented even before the course is completed. We believe this offers a uniquely flexible qualification that has a minimal impact on the delegate’s work and home life, and in turn, a minimal impact on their educational setting.

 

What our iSENCO delegates say about our course

Don’t just take our word for it though. See what our delegates think of us below.

In 2020 so far…

  • 100% of our delegates rated Real Training’s iSENCO course as ‘good’ or ‘very good’.
  • 100% rated Campus Online as ‘good’ or ‘very good’.
  • 92% rated the extent to which the course met their developmental priorities as ‘good’ or ‘very good’.

“Excellent guidance from the team in terms of alternative projects when lockdown was instituted.The combination of theory, research and practical application is invaluable in gaining insight into SEN and inclusive practices. I think there is a healthy balance between theory and practical application, which was extremely important for me as I needed both aspects.”Florina Froneman-Gerber

“For the first time I actually understand what I am aiming for in my job. All the practical tasks were applied in reality and really helped. The depth of understanding and a sense of what my job is supposed to be empowered me and transformed the way I carry out my job. It is the first training I have done which actually trains you for the job you do. Definitely do it. It’s the best course I have ever taken and I have completed a degree, Masters, a Grad Dip, an AMBDA, a PGCE, and now this!”Sarah Brown

 

Our September cohort closes on 18 September

If you have someone in your setting for whom you believe the iSENCO qualification is relevant, all they need to do is complete our online booking form by 5pm on Friday 18 September to be included in our September cohort. We don’t require payment at the time of booking; to start this month, we simply require completed application forms and an initial payment by the end of the month.

If you have any questions regarding the course and eligibility for staff members, please don’t hesitate to contact us either by email at info@realgroup.co.uk or by phone on +44 (0) 1273 35 80 80.

Update for the Cognitive Abilities Profile (CAP) course 2020

We have some exciting new developments relating to our acclaimed Cognitive Abilities Profile (CAP) course, taking place in 2020.

As you will be aware, many activities and all kinds of communication have been turning increasingly to online media not only as forms of social communication but as important channels for learning, sharing and working.

As a result, for 2020, the Cognitive Abilities Profile (CAP) course will now be delivered via four webinars on the following dates:

  • 27 October – 10am – 12.30pm
  • 29 October – 10am – 12.30pm
  • 3 November – 10am – 12.30pm
  • 5 November – 10am – 12.30pm

How will this benefit participants? People undertaking the forthcoming CAP online course will be able to:

  • Join from anywhere in the world, without encountering the costs – and current risks – of travelling 
  • Take the course at a more measured pace, with a blend of pre-recorded videos   which can be viewed and reviewed at times convenient to you.
  • Each pre-recorded video will be followed by a live session, giving you time to reflect, digest and prepare your questions ahead of the next live session. 
  • Even more flexibility. Missed a live session? You can go over it yourself . Want to watch a case study again?  All live sessions will be recorded and made available for participants to view and review for a limited period of time following the course.   
  • Network more effectively with other participants, to share experiences and ideas without the worry of catching the train at the end of the day. 
  • Benefit with more one-to-one Q&A time with Dr Ruth Deutsch who will deliver the CAP online training.

The sessions will cover the following material:

  • The principles, key questions and concepts of dynamic assessment and how they apply to CAP.
  • The different models of cognitive processes and the seven functional domains of cognitive abilities.
  • The contents of the CAP toolkit and how to use this to develop informed and effective interventions.

Launching CAP online

Not only do we believe that a CAP online model of delivering our renowned CAP training programme will be of even greater benefit to participants, but also that CAP is a uniquely adaptable tool for socially-distant times.

The limits of standardisation in a non-standard world

Traditional forms of ability assessment face considerable issues in terms of reliability when not being able to be conducted face to face. When the assessor and the student cannot be in the same room, standardisation and the absence of a controlled environment are challenging.

CAP consultation does not require direct work with a student. Indeed, during the past few months Real Training has made available some of the CAP materials for special online use by practising psychologists and specialist teachers so that they can conduct effective consultations and collaborative discussions whilst social distancing. The feedback we have been getting has shown that the CAP is indeed a flexible working tool.

Thus CAP lends itself not only to social-distance use, but the CAP training course can be fully delivered without face to face learning. This is something of a specialty for Real Training. We have been delivering online courses successfully since 2004, so you can be confident your online learning experience will be seamless and fully-supported.

For a whole decade CAP has found a place as a unique, and powerful tool in the armoury of educators and psychologists, but in the current circumstances and the manifold uncertainties surrounding us, it has become even more important. For instance, whilst we know that schools in the UK and around the world are intending to return to a version of ‘normal’, this could change. And even with a return to face to face lessons, educators and students may wish to limit as far as possible proximity with non-school-based staff, including parents and carers who would be part of CAP consultations.  Professionals trained in CAP will be able to continue to support all students – including the most vulnerable – regardless of the situation, helping them to achieve their personal potential.
