Partnerships for training: an easy access pack for developing equal training partnerships with people with a learning disability
Jane Jones, Christopher Robertson Bild Publications
ISBN 1 905218 02 8
Although aimed at experienced trainers, this resource will be useful for anyone planning a training partnership with people who have a learning disability. Clear, simple and unambiguous, the book and accompanying DVD use real examples of partnerships in action, with each partnership working together to overcome various challenges.
Hints and tips are given about how to form partnerships and address problems before they arise by looking at issues from every angle. Once these partnerships have been established, thoughts turn to who the partnerships can train, and some surprising suggestions are aired.
The book complements learning by suggesting issues to consider and simple group exercises that put it into practice.
In this way partnerships are formed and, from watching the scenarios on the DVD, people are seen growing in confidence and having fun along the way
