“Keep the courses going, they are brilliant!”
UNISON North West hosted a full week of short courses for school support staff from 24-28 July. A total of 150 teaching assistants, learning support, admin support and midday supervisors enrolled onto a diverse range of workshops.
Feedback from participants was excellent. Learner Jane commented, “I didn’t realise I would learn so much, outstanding tutor!”
There are plans to run many of the courses again. The programme included sessions on:
- Promoting Positive Behaviours
- Supporting Maths in the Classroom
- Polish language & culture
- Autism Awareness
- Mental Health Awareness
- Dyslexia Awareness
- Confidence and self esteem
- British Sign Language
- Managing conflict
The courses took place in a range of venues across the North West – in Preston, Manchester and Liverpool.
