Our hands on training courses offer a new and innovative approach to training:

  • Work alongside a practitioner delivering outstanding practice
  • Help set up a rich learning environment
  • Observe real adult-child interactions
  • Try it out for yourself
  • Evaluate children’s learning

Hands on learning means no sitting and listening – ideal for kinaesthetic learners, and for those who would rather be doing than watching. The training session will consist of a short introduction, followed by setting up, delivering and tidying up. There will then be chance to ask the practitioner any questions. There will be just two places available at each session.
