50 HOUR SSYTT HANDS ON ASSIST & TOUCH METHODOLOGY

19 - 23 February 2020 8.00 - 18.00 daily

OVERVIEW

Join SSYTT for an Advanced Studies and 50hr Post Graduate Teacher Training Course that covers the education and approach needed for competent and confident hands on assisting. For many teachers, putting your hands on a student’s body is a scary and unnatural thing. And that’s ok. It means you care. Learning how to Assist the room, while teaching & touching is a task that takes time, focus and experience. So we have a whole course dedicated to just this. This course focuses entirely on how to build your knowledge & know-how for hands-on support in class. The aim of the course is to share the concepts behind the power of the touch, the SSY Assisting Methodology and the details behind the techniques needed for manual adjustments.
