Working with your teachers, special needs assistants and support staff!

Training for educators, SPECIAL need ASSISTANts and Support staff.

Sile believes all training and development interventions need to be aligned with the schools values, goals and challenges for it to be effective and sustainable. Using participatory approaches Sile uncovers where the most value can be added through training and development, engages the relevant staff in identifying the core needs in the area of learning and then facilitates a tailored approach to the training and development.


This purpose to this approach is to support ..

  • The session being integrated into the schools culture and norms long after the training occurs.

  • Encourages participants to find solutions with each other, for their shared challenges and opportunities.

  • Building psychological safety through encouraging robust reflection and respectful sharing.

  • More effective bonding within the current team and developing an inclusive approach to learning

  • The whole experience in being realistic and usable outside of the training room
