Senworks Training Videos

Senworks is currently working on a number of pre-recorded training videos offering schools and SENCOs greater flexibility to fit training around staff timetables and availability.

What do people say about our training?

“I was very specific regarding the training I wanted for my school. Abigail designed a bespoke training package for my school and delivered it professionally with humour and at an excellent pace.

Staff thoroughly enjoyed each session and have used her strategies and techniques in their lessons; so much so they continue to discuss and evolve her techniques to meet the needs of our students.

I cannot rate Abigail’s training highly enough and have no hesitation in recommending her services.”
