Foundations SEND, Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, is a new addition to our Focus courses! Working together with Sian Thorley and Infinity Shooting stars, this diploma has been created to assist coaches, teachers, parents, and carers.
This is a great introduction for those ready to start their own SEND team, already have a team and want to share their experience or for people working 1:1 with athletes and dancers. We cover what a SEND team is and why you should start a team. What learning difficulties are, how to structure and adapt sessions. Creating relationships with athletes, parents, and carers. And an introduction into BSL/Makaton and how this can be used during sessions.
This Focus course is available to junior coaches aged 12yrs-15yrs, to coaches, teachers, class assistants and anyone working within a SEND setting. It also gives an insight to parents and carers of what to expect during sessions, especially if they are attending with their child.
A certificate of completion is issued at the end of the course to support individuals Continuing Professional Development.
This is not a qualification and if used by a lead coach, it must be accompanied by a relevant activity/sporting qualification.
END TIMES ARE APPROXIMATE- your course may run over time slightly depending on participant interaction.
Course manuals will be sent out when registration closes
