Our front line support staff – Learning and Behaviour Specialists (LaBS) – are key in ensuring our learners are working towards and achieving the targets in their Individual Learning Plans.
A central tenet of this work is ensuring the staff have the skills, knowledge and understanding of the world of teaching and learning.
Earlier this month 15 of our LaBS received their Award in Education and Training (Level 3). The course was delivered by our co-located partner, the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London. We are currently delivering the same course to our West Thames staff through West Thames College.
These are our teachers of the future – investing in them and supporting them to develop their skill set makes good sense for them, us and our learners!
