Improving learner outcomes

NatSIP Evaluation

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

Currently I am a practising QTVI but am always open to ideas and have enjoyed reading the materials and watching the videos. There's never an end to developing knowledge of VI. There are so many variations. I am currently working with a child who is 1 in 3 in the UK with a particular problem, very interesting and stimulating to draw together information and support for the pupil and the family.


The video footage of experienced teachers giving advice and recommendations was really useful. Listening to a variety of children from different age groups was also helpful. I am more focused on the need to monitor progress and monitor that planning is given out in advance so that work can be modified. Would certainly recommend the course.


This course has been of great help to me as I have learned to look out for things that might hinder my students learning. The sessions with my tutor have been of enormous help. I am so pleased and grateful that she enrolled me on this course.

Doing this course has given me a better understanding of the obstacles that VI students face on a day to day basis, and how determined they are to become independent. It has also given me the confidence to meet the needs of these students and make the necessary changes for them to access the lesson.
