Improving learner outcomes

About us

CPD Certification Service logo

Providing recognised independent CPD accreditation compatible with global CPD principles.

What we do

Blended online SEND courses for teachers and teaching assistants who support children with special educational needs. Each course provides an understanding of a different SEN or disability, together with practical, evidence-based strategies that you can start using immediately.

We also have courses on effective teaching and learning and managing behaviour that are not specific to learners with special educational needs.

ONLINETRAINING LTD is a MEMBER of The CPD Certification Service.


Why we do it

We believe that all children should be given the best chance in life. Our courses are designed to help you and your school improve learning outcomes for ALL children.

Our vision for children with SEND is the same as for all children and young people – that they achieve well in their early years, at school and in college, and lead happy and fulfilled lives.

Foreword, SENDCoP 2015

Organisations

An employer purchasing places for a number of people might opt for more tutor contact, such as a group workshop, which would incur an additional charge to cover the tutor’s time and travel expenses.

Alternatively, schools or local authorities enrolling a number of employees on a course might opt to have an in-house specialist provide tutor support. In this situation, the in-house specialist would complete the course(s) as a participant first, and take part in tutor training.

Organisations can also be eligible for discounts on multiple purchases – If you’d like to explore options, please get in touch.
