Meet the exhibitor: Real Training

05 July 2018

Hear from Real Training as they introduce themselves and talk about what you can expect from them at the Tes SEN Show 2018.

We are really looking forward to exhibiting at the TES SEN Show 2018 in October. A lot has happened in the last 12 months for Real Training and we are keen to update everyone, as well as find out what’s new with the show delegates - we always enjoy hearing about the delegates’ current areas of interest, focus and concern in supporting students in their settings.

If you have not heard of Real Training before, we are a UK-based company led by three educational psychologists, offering high-quality courses to suit a wide variety of interests and roles within the education sector. Our courses are mostly delivered online with the support of highly-qualified and experienced tutors. We believe in practice-led learning - this means that, while studying with us, you will not only gain an understanding of the skills required to support the students you work with, you will also embed your learning through a number of practical tasks and assignments. So, you’ll be making a difference in your setting straight away!

For aspiring leaders, we have been working closely with four partner schools to offer our inclusively-led National Professional Qualifications in Middle Leadership (NPQML), Senior Leadership (NPQSL) and Headship (NPQH).

In the area of special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), we have our approved National Award for SEN Coordination (NASENCO) for SENCOs with QTS or QTLS. This is part of our established SEND Masters programme which has been recently reviewed and revised to introduce new modules to meet the needs of the ever-evolving education sector. One of the new modules is the innovative International Award in SEN Coordination (iSENCO) which has been designed for SENCOs and aspiring SENCOs working in international schools without UK QTS or QTLS.

Also, if you have a particular interest in special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), then make sure you come along to our workshop at the TES SEN show, where one of our directors and educational psychologists, Siobhan Mellor, will be talking about how to apply the principles of practice-led learning to your own professional development in SEND. The workshop is on Saturday 6 October at 11.45 - we hope to see you there!

We are also the largest provider of a number of courses focusing on professional assessment. We offer highly-regarded courses available for those wishing to be qualified in assessing for access arrangements and in educational testing in general. In partnership with Dyslexia Action, we can also offer a full route to gaining an Assessment Practising Certificate (APC).

So, whatever your, or your colleagues’, training needs for the coming academic year may be, be sure to come and talk to us at the TES SEN Show this October - we’ll be on stand number 135.
