National Inst. of Adult Continuing Education, Leicester (England).; CHANGE, London (England).
This training package consists of a print training guide to accompany an audiotape and videotape. It is designed to support adults with learning disabilities in their efforts to become trainers. Adult learners who complete the training package as part of a further education college, adult education center, day center, or self-advocacy group program are eligible to receive Open College credits for their efforts. The package consists of 16 learning modules that each contain some or all of the following: unit objectives, student handouts, instructional text, and a review checklist. Basic vocabulary and simple sentence structures are used in all the modules, and each module is liberally illustrated. Module topics are as follows: introducing training, being in a group, self-assessment, going to a meeting, let's relax, presenting ourselves, our rights, make it fair, saying no, planning, ways of teaching, giving a talk, how did it go?, resources, doing your own research, and organizing yourself. Concluding the training guide is a word bank in which vocabulary words used throughout the guide are defined in simple terms and illustrated. (The audiotape is an audio version of the print learning modules. The videotape shows people in the trainer training course and introduces people already working as trainers.) (MN)
