Learning Disabilities

Learners will need to complete our training skills for trainers day before they attend any of our Train the Trainer course days. Please note that this is only compulsory if you have never attended one of our Train the Trainer course days before. You do not need to complete our training skills day if you have already attended.

 

A learning disability affects the way a person understands information and how they communicate. Around 1.5 million people in the UK have one. This means they can have difficulty understanding new or complex information, learning new skills or coping independently.

This course is designed to increase knowledge and understanding of those supporting individuals with learning disabilities.

During the session, you'll cover: 

Define what is meant by the term learning disability
Describe some of the barriers faced by people with a learning disability 
Discuss some possible causes of learning disability
Describe some of the other issues people with a learning disability may face
Discuss the guidance and legislation supporting people with a learning disability 
Describe how to manage support for individuals you support.

 

This full or half-day course comprises an engaging mix of activities with fellow learners (maximum fifteen delegates). You’ll be asked to complete a simple multiple-choice assessment after you take the course. You will receive a certificate once you have passed the assessment.
