Foundation Training and how to get it.
It’s that time of year; the days are longer, there are lambs in the fields, the grass is getting cut and people are thinking about new beginnings. Maybe you want to embrace the Spring momentum and get a new skill under your belt, the one you’ve been hearing about from colleagues and reading about on social media; Talking Mats!
Talking Mats has been busy and there are new resources about to be launched but they have the line ‘only available to those trained in Talking Mats’. You attended something a few years ago and you think something was said that had something to do with Talking Mats – does that count? And it’s just pictures how hard can it be?
If this sounds like a conversation you’ve had with yourself read this blog to find out why training in this innovative communication tool is recommended.
I need this training; how can I get it?
You’ve made the decision that you’ll get trained in Talking Mats. What options are there to let you do this? Like all training providers over the last 3 years Talking Mats has had to adapt our training provisions. We have also had to be responsive to what our customers want; there is a much bigger demand for virtual training and online training than we experienced pre 2020. To reflect this we currently offer a variety of ways you can access our Foundation Training. Your choice will depend on the answers to several questions; what sort of learner are you? Can you do this as part of your working day or will it be in your own time? Can you apply for study leave? Following from that; would you like to buy a resource with your training and what is available ? The following diagrams should help simplify things and more in depth information about Foundation Training is on our website, as well as booking information. Being trained in Talking Mats allows you to access all our Advanced Courses and Resources and go on to become a Licenced Trainer.
