Whether you are looking for INSET training for your entire team, a focussed session for particular staff members to meet a child’s needs or a forum for sharing and learning best practice, Valuing Minds can help.
As a trainer/lecturer, Nicky is able to mix her knowledge and past experience as both an educational and business psychologist to provide engaging, evidence-based training sessions. There is always plenty of time to ask questions and to discuss how what has been covered in the session can be applied in the classroom or inclusion hub.
Continuing professional development for teachers is a key element of the service we provide. Whether it is a standard workshop or one created specially for the needs of your school or college, in-service training provided by Valuing Minds is designed to be interactive, interesting and informative, as well as enjoyable! Examples of programme we can run include:
- Supporting children with dyslexia
- Supporting children with dyscalculia
- Supporting children with dyspraxia
- Stress management for teachers
- Using person-centred thinking tools
- Creating one page profiles
- Person centred EHCP review meetings
- Behaviour modification techniques
- Spotting mental health issues – and what action to take
- And so on
If you’d like us to, we can run separate sessions for NQTs, experienced teachers and support staff – at times and locations to suit you.

SENCO and Inclusion Manager forums
Valuing Minds is setting up forums, where SENCOs and Inclusion Managers can meet, share ideas and resources, discuss common issues and hear experts in their field deliver training workshops. If you would like to attend an event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details of the nearest forum to your school or college.
If you’re part of an Academy Trust and would like Valuing Minds to run training sessions for staff from several schools at once (SENCOs or inclusion teams, for example) or the same training in several schools at different times, just get in touch. If you’d like us to include some of the material from our Supporting Teachers programme so you can look at how Trust policy can be formulated across a number of schools, we’d be happy to do that.
Cost & How To Book
How much the training will cost depends on the training that you would like Valuing Minds to deliver! The best way to find out and to book is to contact us and we’ll talk you through all the options.
