Fiona Locke, our Programmes Manager is central to LBB’s work. Here she is updating our bespoke online training programme for volunteers.
We are committed to making sure our teachers gain knowledge and expertise during their time with us. Before classes begin each teacher completes this training programme. Fiona worked with Alex to design and create the content for this course.
Through it, we equip our volunteer teachers with some of the technical skills needed to undertake the classes and they are provided with suggestions for materials and resources. It isn’t all about the tech: it’s also about awareness of and understanding the needs of refugee learners, so this is a key part of the course, too.
Last but by no means least, the greatest learning comes through the teachers themselves as they share their knowledge and suggestions with one another – that’s true collaboration and it’s one of the best things about our community!
