Jenny Fletcher from MSI Services will be delivering a 5 day Intervenor course at WESC Foundation from 19th February to 23rd February 2018, and there are external places available on this course.

Alongside colleagues in 1989, Jenny developed the first five-day course for Intervenors in the UK. This course has become nationally recognised and accepted as a criterion for training for those working on a 1:1 basis with children and adults who are MSI/Deafblind.

The course has been approved by Sense for Jenny to deliver alongside colleagues on the NatSIP providers list.  This 5-day course is specifically designed for Teaching Assistants, Health Care Workers, Learning Support Workers, Social Care Workers and those employed to work on a 1:1 basis with a child or young person who is congenitally multi-sensory impaired/deafblind, or has a single sensory Impairment with additional complex needs.  This course also meets the requirements of the Intervenor Standards issued by NatSIP and the DfE and has been accredited with the University of Northampton (in process of being renewed).

Course content includes:

  • Causes & implications of Deafblindness
  • Visual & Hearing Impairment
  • Communication and Touch Interaction
  • The role of the Intervenor
  • Mobility & Orientation
  • Interactive Environments

On successful completion of the 5-day course the participant will receive a certificate of attendance and can be classed as a Trained Intervenor and is eligible to join the National Organisation of Intervenors and attend annual NOI Network days.

The cost of the course is £450 per person.
