We are pleased to announce the following courses, or at the bottom, some courses that we recommend.
Delivered by Downright Special staff via Zoom, this training will cover key facts about the multifaceted nature of Down syndrome and an in-depth exploration of the learning profile for Down syndrome and its implications for classroom practice.
We would recommend that teachers and teaching assistants attend the course together as the session covers issues of both classroom and one to one practice. SENCOs are also invited to attend.

We are pleased to offer a range of courses as INSET training for schools, pre-schools or nurseries in Hull and East Yorkshire, including:
Depending on staff availability we may be able to offer training out-of-area. Although our training makes special reference to children with Down syndrome many of the difficulties covered will be common to other children with special educational needs. Training is delivered on site during the school day or as a twilight session. (We may also be able to deliver these sessions remotely via video-conference. Please contact us for rates and to discuss your needs.) Click here to download full details of our INSET training and costs.
