The original system conceived by Dr Marc Gold was called Try Another Way. It was developed specifically to teach people who find it difficult to learn using traditional methods, particularly people who have a learning disability. It includes three key component elements; an organisational framework; instructional procedures/teaching strategies and a sound value base.
The system is based on three fundamental beliefs:
TSI is a tried and tested system which provides staff with training skills, which in turn can help people with learning disabilities learn new and often complex skills in employment, independent living skills and wider community activities.
Turn-it-Around is committed to providing high quality structured training to organisations, staff teams and individuals. The training ensures that participants are equipped to support people who experience a range of disabilities.
Turn-it-Around Training has been delivering TSI courses to staff teams across the country since 2009. Both trainers have worked within Supported Employment and applied the techniques successfully. In addition they have experience in using TSI within services that promote independent living and general skill building.
Turn-it-Around challenges the dependency model and complacency that can surround service delivery. We empower and train participants to work in partnership with the people they support.
a set of skills which enable them to teach tasks in a planned and structured way, to people who find it difficult to learn using traditional methods, particularly those who have a learning disability/autism.
positive outcomes/increased independence for people in work, home and community settings.
planning, monitoring and evaluating progress tools built into the system.
allows a more balanced relationship between the person teaching and the person learning a task.
I have found what I’ve learnt on this TSI course almost ‘life changing’ as it means I will have to re-set my thinking and way of working, training and supporting . Even though I have worked in further education for a number of years I have never had training so impactful / powerful.
The trainers wealth of knowledge and experience provided a value filled 4 days.
I have learnt so much that I cannot focus on one part alone as the best bit. This course will influence every interaction I have with the people I support in the future “
