Description This is a tutored online course aimed at teachers and teaching assistants who need practical help in meeting the needs of a pupil (or pupils) with motor co-ordination difficulties. It assumes no prior knowledge of motor co-ordination difficulties, but is also suitable for SEN specialists with some prior knowledge. It involves the setting of goals and interventions for the young person with whom you are working, and an evaluation of the effectiveness of these interventions. It can either be delivered through our associate tutor network, or organisations can purchase a multi-user licence, and we can train up your proposed online tutors, who may come from a variety of professional backgrounds.
Duration 12 - 20 hours online study and one or more face to face meetings.

Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

This course consists of an introduction to motor co-ordination difficulties, the assessment of pupils with motor co-ordination difficulties, and evidence based interventions which have been shown to be effective with children and young people with motor co-ordination difficulties. Video case studies are provided, and participants are expected to plan 3 SMART goals and implement 3 interventions to achieve these goals. 90 days after course completion they are asked to report back on the outcomes they have achieved. 

Evidence underpinning this approach

Course content has been provided by specilaists working in the field in both the health and education sectors. We have ample evidence of the impact and effectiveness of this course, both quantitative from the Goal Attainment Scaling used to assess pupils’ outcomes, and qualitative from participant feedback on the online forums incorporated into the course.

How users/participants can evaluate success

The course provides direct evidence of impact on pupil outcomes through the Goal Attainment Scaling model which is integral to it.

Follow-up activities and support

Online forums are integral to the course, and these provide the opportunity to establish online communities of learning. Participants have ongoing access to the course material and we know that 95% refer back to it after completion. There are a large number of resources within the course, many from external providers, and these and the course content are continually refreshed and updated.


The course normally involves an initial face to face session to introduce participants to the online interface, although this can be done remotely. Participants are then tutored through the 3 main sections of the course and expected to contribute to online forum discussion relating to each section. Video material is interspersed throughout the course, and there are quizzes in each section.

At the end of the assessment section participants are expected to set 3 SMART goals for the young person they are working with, and at the end of the interventions section they are asked to identify the interventions to achieve these goals. They then have 90 days to implement these interventions and to report back using Goal Attainment Scaling.

This course does not have any pre-booked dates available. Please contact the provider directly to arrange this training.
