Make friends and support each other.
Our interactive training is designed to offer total flexibility to meet trainees’ and organizational needs and to provide trainees with an experience that is meaningful but enjoyable with outcomes to increase their opportunities in the community and take forward in their every-day lives.Trainees maintain a Work Book and are provided with hand-outs of presentations/exercises to review their training experiences. The training is set out with PowerPoint presentations in formats, including easy-read, to meet trainees’ needs and includes group work, discussion arenas and video role play sessions.Trainees are awarded a Certificate of Achievement on completion of the course and dates/timings and venues are open to arrangement.
The duration of the training is preferably 8 weeks x 2 hour sessions.
