Health and Safety Training for Special Needs Assistants

Donegal ETB has been holding a three day Health and Safety Training event from the 25th – 27th August for Special Needs Assisants in our 15 Post Primary Schools at locations including Gartan Outdoor Education Centre, Donegal Town, Letterkenny and Stranorlar.  The Training involved participation in courses such as Occupational First Aid, Management of Actual or Potential Aggression (MAPA), In-Service Training and Information Technology.  Guest Speaker at Day 2 of the Training was Bill Vaughan of Donegal Mind Wellness.  This is the third year for this type of training to be held and it reflects Donegal ETB’s commitment to promote as much as possible continued professional development for its staff and in particular in those areas that will bring benefit to our students.
