Who should attend?

  • The target audience for the training is staff working in Special Educational Needs Schools. It can also be delivered to parents and carers.
  • Modules 1 in each area provide a foundational level knowledge which we believe all staff in Special Schools should have. Modules 2 and 3 are for those with a highlighted interest in this area and wish to develop more in-depth knowledge.
  • Water Skills is a two-part training programme. Part 1 is considered the theory of Aquatic Therapy, benefits of using the water and understanding the terminology used. Part 2 looks at different planes of movement within the water, positioning and practical aspects of using the water therapeutically.
