AFL Training can offer:
- training days and workshops on issues relating to play and leisure opportunities for disabled people (see below for more details)
- a speaker for conferences and seminars.
Aims and Philosophy of the Training Service
All the training provided by AFL Training is of a high standard and aims to meet the specific needs of the group involved.
I have an adult education teaching qualification and experience of working with people in a learning environment. I also have a breadth of experience of working with disabled adults and children in play settings, respite care units, residential units and day centres. This hands-on experience can be seen through the practical and realistic approach to the training.
In the training session we aim to:
- explore some of the issues that workers and parents/carers face when providing play and leisure activities
- address the concerns people have about providing play and leisure opportunities for disabled people
- give information and ideas about appropriate play and leisure
- discuss, and play with, play and leisure equipment
- promote choice for disabled adults, young people and children, and their carers
- offer an interactive / participatory approach to the training session
- focus on the setting and issues facing the participants
- support the training with information handouts and workbooks
- follow up enquiries and requests for information and ideas
AFL Training is committed to quality in all the services offered. I value constructive feedback and evaluate the training service both formally and informally.
Details about Training Courses
Where do the sessions happen?
Training can be held at your place of work or where your group meets, in a community building or school for example. The venue needs to be accessible, on the ground floor or with lift access. The resources used for the training are large and heavy. I travel to any part of the country to make my ideas accessible to a wide audience.
In order to make the session useful I suggest a minimum of 10 people and a maximum of 20. (I appreciate that on some occasions this is not possible or appropriate.)
The participants do not need to be from the same place of work or group, and training often thrives when people have diverse backgrounds and knowledge.
The fees for the training sessions are negotiable for parent groups and small voluntary organisations. I understand that many groups will not have a budget to cover training, in some of these cases we may be able to come to special arrangements. Please do ask.
The standard fees for training in 2016/17 are:
Full Day £500
Half Day £300
2 hour workshop £200
All fees plus expenses.
