This is a free webinar for Natspec members only. A recording of the webinar will be made available for everyone on our YouTube channel shortly after the event.

At Ambitious College, who have a large percentage of non-verbal learners, there was some apprehension as to how inclusive a home learning approach could be. Throughout lockdown and the home learning period, teaching and therapy staff at Ambitious College utilised a combination of learning resources and teaching methods that engaged 83% of learners in daily learning. Iestyn Withers, employment specialist at the college, explains how a home learning strategy with a focus on daily living supported learners to maintain their education, progress in their learning, and transfer their knowledge, learning and skills to environments outside of college. Ambitious College is the winner of the Natspec 2021 Home Learning award.
