Course overview:

At every special school, the needs of children are varied, complex and individualised.  This can lead to an environment where nurture and care can supplant academic rigour.  Through our experiences with a wide range of special schools – and special provisions within mainstream schools – we know that our Path to Success can bring the nurturing and the academic together in ways that support learning whilst ensuring pupils are engaged and supported – regardless of need.

This short training session shares several of our favourite approaches for developing and delivering personalised, irresistible learning in a wide range of environments.

  • Elaborative dialogue, tentative talk, sustained shared thinking and other forms of communication
  • Active listening to encourage children to talk, including intensive interactions
  • Planning your talk to match the learning objective, as well as personalised targets for life
  • Evidencing through a wide range of sources and routes.
