Over the last two years, OLT have worked in partnership with the National Sensory Impairment Partnership (NatSIP) training advisory teams to deliver our online courses in HI, VI and MSI to teaching staff.
As of February 2019, 836 participants had completed their courses, with another 276 part of the way through.
Evaluation data for those who’ve finished demonstrates significantly improved confidence in their knowledge and skills – you can see pre and post-course comparisons below.

Feedback from our participants
“I have really enjoyed the training and it has reassured me that the strategies I have, both old and newly acquired from the training, are effective. It has also given me lots of information and motivation to improve my effectiveness regarding the deaf pupils I support. Thank you!
“The training has deepened my knowledge of the subject of hearing impairment. It strengthened my theoretical knowledge and, most importantly, I have now made practical adjustments to my teaching to provide a better learning environment for the hearing-impaired student in my class.
“Straightaway, I will be implementing the goals and interventions I have set out for this particular student and am very hopeful that the strategies will be successful and beneficial to the student. This will further enhance the Academy's already well-established ethos of inclusion.
“The training has impacted on outcomes for a pupil in my class as now we are able to do assessments and work with him on a one to one basis knowing that we understand what we have to achieve and why.
