6. What happens at the training

What happens on the training?

The training is led by external Therapeutic Thinking consultant – Angela Wadham. The training is delivered using PowerPoint and all attendees are provided with a hard copy for note-taking and an electronic version to use when back in their schools.

The training will cover all the key principles of Therapeutic Thinking a well as some engagement sections which enable attendees to realise the necessity for this philosophy to be embedded in East Sussex. There is always an ISEND representative at the training to answer questions and comment on any county-based queries and statistics.

The training will provide clear guidance and support in how to use the Therapeutic Thinking analysis and planning tools. These are also provided as hard copes and electronic copies for all attendees to use and share in their schools.

On the third day the attendees will each deliver their own 5-minute presentation to the group with a partner. This is an essential part of the training. The presentation resources and time to prepare are included within the training and all those that have partaken in this activity have been enthusiastic about it as an experience and learning tool.

Attendees are encouraged to wear casual clothes to the sessions, there is no need for formal wear. We appreciate that it is a long period of time away from school and want to reassure you that Attendees are able to check emails and take phone calls if needed over the 3-days.

Lunch, hot drinks, refreshments and snacks are all provided free of charge. We can accommodate dietary requirements if notified in advance.

Where will the training be?

The 3-day Training sessions will be held at a Hotel/Conference Suite in Eastbourne.
