Specialist Inclusion Support Service (SISS) Training
Welcome to the Specialist Inclusion Support Service’s training brochure for 2021-22. The last academic year has been one I’m sure none of us will forget, or wish to revisit, but on the positive side it has helped us to develop our ability to adapt and be resilient, in addition to providing us with opportunities to embrace virtual technologies. Who knew our training would now regularly be accompanied by ‘I can’t hear you, you’re on mute’, or ‘Is that a legacy hand?’ as we have tried to get on top of Teams, breakout groups and screen sharing. Let’s hope 2021-22 means we can at last meet face to face again and enjoy the interactive learning and sharing opportunities that only face to face training brings, whilst also looking to retain some of the advantages of our virtual worlds.
Planning a Training Brochure in the summer of 2021 means we are thinking about how we will be able to deliver our courses and support all of you, considering the possible new normal from September and with the hope that training will then be face to face. We ran many of our courses last year virtually, however the interactive nature of others and with challenges in schools to release staff, it meant that several didn’t run; as a result we have many of those courses on offer again this year. Responding to demand from staff in schools new courses include: Managing Challenging Behaviour, Numicon – Breaking Barriers, Developing Nurture Groups in schools and a course focusing on the Role of the Key Adult in schools. In addition we still have our most popular courses available, as well as the commissioned AET training for staff new to Solihull, or new to their autism specific role.
We continue to offer a range of tailored 'in house’, or bespoke professional development opportunities. This continued professional development can be delivered to individual schools, organisations or groups of schools, such as collaboratives. We can devise a package with you, based around your key priorities for development. This could be for a whole or part of a training day, a series of sessions or even a webinar.
For enquiries, please contact the Training Administrator on 0121 704 6690 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org . We will be happy to respond to your enquiries or to discuss your training and professional development needs.
All of us at SISS look forward to seeing you and working with you again in the forthcoming year.
