NATSPEC Annual Conference, proudly sponsored by Axcis

Axcis are thrilled to sponsor the NATSPEC Annual Conference, which is being held on the 2nd and 3rd April 2019, at the Jury’s Inn, Hinckley. This is a must-attend event for FE professionals who specialise in working with students with learning difficulties and disabilities, particularly those funded through the High Needs funding system.

About this event

“High Needs, High Aspirations” aims to challenge and at the same time enthuse delegates.

 

Firstly, how do we identify and meet the significant needs of students, staff, professionals and families, as we continue to negotiate a system which has been through almost ten years of austerity and financial challenge, combined with major legislative and structural change?  And how do we do this effectively against a backdrop of cultural, political and economic upheaval and uncertainty?

 

Secondly, how can we stretch the boundaries, raise expectations, and support students to fulfil their full potential?  Having high aspirations, for students and the specialists that work with them, and showcasing the expertise and excellence that exists in colleges and their partner organisations, has never been more important.

 

The Natspec 2019 conference is a must-attend event for FE professionals who specialise in working with students with learning difficulties and disabilities, particularly those funded through the High Needs funding system. At a new venue for 2019, it will be the largest ever high needs FE conference.  The 2-day event will bring you the very best practice in specialist further education, celebrating achievements and highlighting the latest in cutting edge research.

 

You will hear from national specialists and experts, with workshops and keynote sessions covering Ofsted’s new Education Inspection Framework, SEND and the law, strategic planning with LAs, maximising employment outcomes, governance, leaner voice, developing and maintaining staff expertise, physical activity and wellbeing, inclusive strategies for challenging behaviours, and a range of topics to support curriculum planning and delivery.

 

In addition, new for 2019, the conference incorporates the opportunity to network informally throughout the 2 days with “hot topic” tables for discussions on issues such as financial management, diversification, working with parents, post-college living solutions, MIS and data management, GDPR, mainstream-specialist partnerships, and more.

Axcis CPD: Team Teach (South West)

As part of our commitment to provide high-quality training to our schools and candidates, Axcis South West are pleased to offer this two day Team Teach Course on the 27th and 28th December 2018.

Team Teach in June with Axcis

A recent Team Teach course with Axcis

Course Details:

Address: TBC (will be a Bristol location easily accessible by public transport)

Date/time: 27th and 28th December, 9.30am – 4pm

Cost: FREE (with £50 returnable deposit)

How to book: Please call Holly Zammit on 0121 516 3024 to confirm your place on the course or email holly@axcis.co.uk). Places are limited and very popular and due to this, there are no refunds if you cancel after the 27th November.

What is Team Teach?

Team Teach is a training course which explores the verbal and non-verbal aspects of behaviour management. The course explains what is meant by terms like “reasonable force” and when it is appropriate to use physical intervention. In addition to this, delegates are trained how to use restraint techniques. It should be made clear that this is considered a last-resort and the Team Teach course aims to give candidates a tool kit of strategies and techniques they can use before force should ever be considered. Team Teach aims to actually REDUCE the overall need for restraint or use of force in schools – not to promote it.

Why does Axcis offer Team Teach training? 

We are often contacted by schools who require Team Teach trained staff. This is because in many SEND schools, it is an unfortunate reality that advanced behaviour management training, and very occasionally restraint training can be required. We want our staff to be able to do this in a consistent, safe manner as is reflected by the schools we work with. Team Teach can be an expensive course to attend (up to £200 for the two days depending on the provider). This can be prohibitive for teachers and teaching assistants due to the cost, but also the term-time days on which many training courses are run. At Axcis, we regularly offer the course at a hugely discounted price (we simply aim to cover the cost of the venue and training materials) and in school holidays. Training is usually run at our client schools, which can be a huge benefit to those who have worked there as they already know their way around (as well as how to get there!) It should be noted that once you receive Team Teach training, the certificate awarded is only valid for 2 years. After that you must undertake a refresher in order to continue using the techniques you learn.

Is this course right for me?

At Axcis, we pride ourselves on offering high quality, relevant training which will genuinely enhance your employment prospects. We run numerous Team Teach courses throughout the year as part of our candidate CPD programme. To be considered for a place, you should be registered with Axcis (or about to register) and want to work in a long-term supply position at a school where these techniques will be necessary.  This generally means you must have an interest in working with students who are likely to exhibit challenging or confrontational behaviour, potentially escalating to a need to physically intervene. Your consultant can advise you on whether they feel the course will benefit you or not if you are not sure whether it’s right for your own personal CPD pathway.

Planning for an autism friendly Christmas (guest post)

Sue Goldman

Sue Goldman is an autism education specialist offering support, advice and teaching to autistic children, their families and educational settings. She has kindly written us this guest post about planning for an autism friendly Christmas.

 

 

Music, glitter, festive foods, surprises, colour, presents, lights, concerts, people… and more people!

 

There is so much to love about Christmas time but also so much to challenge our autistic pupils. As timetables and routines are thrown to the wind, many of us relish the freedom and unpredictability of the festive season but, for autistic children, the loss of safe structure can feel confusing and worrying. There is concern about what lies beneath wrapping paper, the profusion of visual and auditory stimuli can feel overwhelming, the constant stream of people in both public and private spaces can just be too much – and this can lead to stress, meltdowns and shutdowns.

 

However, I bring good tidings…!

 

There is much that we can do to support our pupils through this very special time of year, helping them to enjoy the wonderful stuff whilst minimising the tricky bits.

Know your students

Preparation and planning are key elements of a successful autism-friendly Christmas. Keep up the visual timetables, giving the right amount of advance warning for your particular pupil. Some will need more preparation time, some will find waiting hard to handle. As always, be guided by your knowledge and understanding of the individual you are working with.

Surprises?

Surprises are generally quite hard for an autistic child to cope with. Involve them in decision-making and be creative when thinking about how to help them to enjoy the surprise elements of Christmas. For example, you could wrap presents in cellophane, which preserves the excitement of unwrapping while reducing uncertainty. If the class is having a party, try asking your autistic pupil to help you to set it up while the room is quiet. It can be much easier to be part of creating the transition to a party room than to enter a room that is so different to normal.

Food

Food issues are magnified around Christmas, both for children who love food and for those who have very selective diets. In general, it’s a good idea to stick to familiar mealtimes, foods and routines as much as possible, whilst also offering opportunities to step out of comfort zones in a safe way. New foods can be introduced through play, which offers a low-anxiety strategy for helping pupils to become familiar with unusual smells, tastes and textures. Cinnamon play dough anyone?

Plays, concerts and all that jazz!

Practise, practise and practise again! Autistic pupils can and should have the opportunity to be part of Christmas celebrations, including plays and concerts, but you will need to think about how to fit their role to their abilities and preferences. They may need more opportunities to practise than other children, maybe starting with a trusted adult, then building up to a small group, then to a bigger group and finally to the full group with an audience. Don’t underestimate how much courage and energy this can take for them, but don’t deny them the chance. They may surprise you! The behaviours that we expect at Christmas (for example, decorating a tree or giving presents) can also be practised through fun, structured turn-taking games – adapt the words of a simple tune to create a clear beginning, middle and end to the game, make or find some appealing props and off you go…!

Play to their strengths

Play to their strengths. Autistic pupils are unique, complex and hugely rewarding to work with. When you discover what they like and are good at, they will often bring exceptional commitment, focus and talent to the activity or task, and there is no joy as deep as autistic joy! So harness their autistic superpowers! Your Christmas will be better as a result.

Remember to relax!

Remember the importance of rest and relaxation! Christmas is an all-singing, all-dancing, bells-and-whistles-on sensory smorgasbord, which can just be too much. Encourage breaks during which your autistic pupils can do whatever they need to do to help themselves to stay calm and well-regulated. Provide quiet spaces or access to outdoors to give decompression time and let them know that you will be responsive to them when they communicate – through words or through actions – that they have had enough.

Further reading

For more thoughts, I would recommend the excellent NAS guide to Christmas, which parents may find particularly helpful (www.autism.org.uk/christmas), and also the advice for pupils produced by the fabulous autistic young people at “Ambitious About Autism” (www.ambitiousaboutautism.org.uk/understanding-autism/christmas-tips)

***I wish you and your pupils a sparkling and peaceful Christmas***

 

Note: I am deliberately using identity-first language (‘autistic child’ rather than ‘child with autism’) as the autistic community expresses a clear and strong preference for this.

Candidate of the Term – Winter 2018 Nominations

Who has been nominated and why for the Axcis Candidate of the Term Winter 2018 awards? Some of the lovely nominations we have received are listed here. Why not take a look?

Nilgun, working for Simi, Axcis London

Nilgun has made a huge difference in the learning of the child she supports. She is warm, friendly and highly professional. She always uses her own initiative and is a problem-solver. She is also always keen to learn new things and help others out, going above and beyond!

Stuart, working for Simi, Axcis London

I would like to nominate Stuart Smith. Stuart has been an amazing addition to our staff team. He has developed an amazing relationship with the young man he is working with. His support, guidance and positivity have turned this young man around. In July, the year 4 child he is now working with was at risk of exclusion and his behaviour was escalating. Now, with Stuart’s support he is able to access and engage with learning alongside his peers. Stuart has also taken the initiative to identify further areas for support and learning and worked with myself, the class teacher and the young mans parents to begin developing a wider additional curriculum to address current and future difficulties he may face. It is a pleasure to work with Stuart and I cannot commend him highly enough. His impact has been noted throughout the school by staff as to the positive influence he has been. ​

Jason, working for Nicola, Axcis London

I would like to nominate SLA Jason as he really brings out the best in students, he always listens intently to them and shows interest in everything they do.  He is very committed to encouraging independence and promoting our differences as strengths.  He always goes above and beyond and nothing is too much trouble.

Carol, working for Liam, Axcis Liverpool

We would like to nominate Carol for TA of the term as she is a dedicated and hard working member of the team, always willing to get involved in all aspects of school life, more often than not going above and beyond her role. She is polite, friendly and gets along with everyone within school and always has a smile upon her face! She would be an asset to any school.

Jess, working for Sorcha, Axcis London

Ok if I could put forward Jess that would be great. Jess works really well with our pupils, go above and beyond their duties to make sure the pupils always have a great time at school and well as being friendly and happy so I would like to nominate her.

Nadine, working for Morgan, Axcis South West

I nominate Nadine for Candidate of the Term because she is so flexible, reliable, supportive, caring, easy going, knowledgeable, thinks about the whole child, gets stuck in to anything and is just lovely to work with!  I’d love for Nadine to get this as she has had quite the time of it lately with her boiler not working and sorting that out- at a small fortune- she needs a treat!

Pippa, working for Morgan, Axcis South West

I would like to nominate Pippa for the candidate of the term, she has been absolutely amazing, she has been instrumental in the transition of a year 10 student into the SEMH unit, she has worked incredibly hard to support him and integrate him into Broadlands Academy.  She is reliable, punctual, empathetic, enthusiastic, has a broad knowledge of challenging students and can use strategies and ideas to support in a very effective manner.  Pippa is also a very good team member, she has instantly fitted in well with our staff and students at Broadlands and has been a pleasure to welcome to the academy.

Chloe, working for Morgan, Axcis South West

We would like to nominate Chloe. She is so always so enthusiastic and positive; kind and warm with children and staff;  has taken part in wider school opportunities; has great working relationships with all the children and staff and goes above and beyond expectations.

Amy, working for Jennifer, Axcis South Wales

I would like to nominate  Amy. She is brilliant with Lucy; always so up beat, she is very patient with Lucy. Lucy has made good progress working with Amy.

Bev, working for Kathryn, Axcis South West

I would like to put Bev forward as she has been the longest standing Axcis working with us, her work is excellent, her attitude is positive and upbeat, she is sensitive to the needs of our pupils, she is flexible and versatile.

Simon, working for Morgan, Axcis South West

Simon – For his can do attitude and always facing any challenges with solutions. He is one of the most polite and courteous gentleman I know . The relationship he has built with his 1-1 pupil is one of trust and he attunes to the child’s needs with true empathy. Everyone needs a Mr Simon in their school! All the others are excellent too.

Monika , working for Kathryn, Axcis South West

Monika – has been an absolute rock for one of our high-needs student – attuned to his needs and totally supportive as his attachment figure in school.

Manjit, working for Kathryn, Axcis South West

Manjit – has been such an asset to our Resource Base, even offering her break times to support with personal care and helping out in lunchtime club. She is amazing!

Kerry , working for Kathryn, Axcis South West

I’d nominate Kerry. She stepped into a role where she’d had experience with Autism but not with this age group. She is confident to ask questions to check her understanding and will offer ideas and opinions that are meaningful and well thought out. She is the first to step in when help is required asking for guidance without launching in inappropriately. She offers support to new staff even though she is really new herself. She ensures that staff are consoled and supported when necessary, never leaving the job to someone else. Her empathetic nature makes her a warm, caring person to share, communicate with and manage. She has established relationships with students at lightning speed. She is confident to challenge decisions with appropriate meaning. She is punctual and reliable. She creates a calm and warm atmosphere in the base, and is someone I rely on more and more.

Angie, working for Alessandro, Axcis South West

Angie is amazing and would be a fabulous nominee. She has slotted into our team fantastically. She came in with an extremely challenging role. However throughout she has remained professional, resilient and dedicated to the needs of the children and the team. Angie always has a smile on her face, she will do anything or work anywhere in the school at the drop of a hat. She is flexible and committed, always willing to go above and beyond! It is like she has always been there. We love having her on our team.

Michael, working for Jennifer, Axcis South Wales

I would like to nominate Michael. He has been a real asset to us. He is totally committed to the welfare and well-being of the pupils, and goes that extra mile to work to that end. He often stays late to feedback on issues occurring during the day, and will puts himself out to meet the needs of a very complex and challenging cohort of pupils. He will often discuss ideas for the programme that have occurred to him over the weekend, as he is happy to develop ideas in his own time. All the pupils have an excellent relationship with him, which is a testament to his ability to meet them at their level, despite being professional at all times. I cannot recommend him highly enough for this award.

Aaron, working for Sorcha, Axcis London

Aaron has been a huge asset to his class team over the past few weeks.  Since day 1 he has fitted right in as part of the team, he is extremely reliable and has used his initiative on many occasions when working with some of the more challenging pupils in the class.  He has a great rapport with the young people he works with and his laid back manner has a calming effect.  He has performed way above what we would ever normally hope or expect from our temporary staff.  It is testament to Aaron’s work attitude and general persona that he has been nominated as both WOW team member for one week and as a Star in Our School at a celebration day we held at school last week.

Janet, working for Kate, Axcis South West

We would like to nominate Janet for candidate of the term as she has gone above and beyond to support our students and been a great tem player.

Kirsten, working for Alessandro, Axcis South West

We’d like to nominate Kirsten – she would be an amazing winner. Kirsten is passionate, knowledgeable and caring and has fitted in so well at St Matthias. A truly lovely teacher who the pupils respect and enjoy her classes. Even if she does not win the award, please feel free to reiterate this to her!

However, if you have an Axcis contractor who has gone above and beyond the call of duty, why not get in touch with us to nominate them for next terms awards? We appreciate every nomination, and so do our candidates! Winners for these awards will be announced soon – so watch this space!
