2015 First May Class
Some more comments after the first contact class:
A small group of three met to attend the start classes of their SEENCO training in December 2015. Two teachers were from Modern Public School, Bhiwadi, the same school three teachers came from who completed the classes in August 2014.
It was exciting to have a young man join the course-
The school has also shown its commitment to providing for children with SEN by sending a second cohort of teachers to be trained!
The SENCo course absolutely met with my expectations. It was fun learning. Christine and Bipasa are empowerers! Ema
This was one of the comments given on the final class feedback forms from this year's final contact class in May 2015. Five teachers from three different starting batches attended the class but all worked well together during the activities and learnt from each others experiences.
The SENCo course has equipped me with certain tools that will help me to deal with my children.
The classes were absolutely interactive and full of activities.
I now found it more comfortable to conduct informal assessments.
The second May class
There were 10 trainees came for the end classes in May 2016-
2016 End Classes May 2016
Commendations: “ The course was much more than I had expected! I respect the honesty and equality with which the course is carried out.”
“We have a lot of experiences and it (the course) is better than we expected.”
“The presentations were conducted well, giving all the participants a free hand to share”
“Presenting My journey as a SENC0 was an emotional experience.”
There were also three trainees form a school in Bhiwadi, Rajasthan who have set up a SEN department and are now sending teachers regularly for training as they know of no other courses from where to get their SEN teachers trained. One lady heads up the SEN department in a school in Indore, Madhya Pradesh, which was started by a trainee from four years ago.
We also had trainees who are looking at how to develop awareness in their area-
The SENCo training is equipping teachers in both urban and rural settings, who are looking to introduce catering for children with SEN and those who are developing their staff! The next classes will be in Delhi in November 2016!
We had eight teachers taking the initial contact class this year from India, Oman and Bangladesh! Several teachers were sent from schools who have started Special Educational Needs departments in their schools and are now sending teachers for training so they can expand their departments. Some of the teachers were Special Educators and others class and subject teachers with a desire for more knowledge. We even had a male student!
2016 Initial Contact
Some of the comments after the first contact class included:
The activities and IEP writing were really useful. Learning the process of assessment leading up to developing IEP’s was a good practical exercise/experience. I am excited to incorporate what we have learnt! Lanusongla
The classes were very interactive and each activity helped me to better my understanding. Srishti
I sure will be able to incorporate the ideas I have learnt in my school and I am all geared up to make a difference. Mark
More time spent in the “Sonday System” would help me digest it better-
