Further Education

4 years delivering weekly SEN provision

For the past 4 years IG have worked with Sheffield City Council’s Sheaf Training provision to deliver provision to learners with Education Health and Care Plans and who require support for a wide range of Special Education Needs and learning difficulties.

Initially commissioned work was targeted toward young adults who struggled with anxiety diagnoses and social skills, however we have recognised the benefits of IG sessions for others with developmental delays and challenging behaviours.

IG has been able to engage young people in recognising transferable skills, particularly regarding team work, which have improved self confidence to make steps towards work placements.

Flexible, conscientious and consistent, IG offer a innovative approach for students to access embedded literacy, numeracy, social and communication skills.  Their sessions are very well attended, and highly regarded within the organisation, as well as by the students themselves.

Disengaged Learners Become Model Students

Imagination Gaming do truly amazing things.

In one hour, Nigel managed to turn disengaged learners into model students, pushing them out of their comfort zone and stretching them in the most clever way. The games are engaging and challenging while presenting as fun. The dynamic of the group changed in the hour we were with Nigel.

I’d highly recommend Imagination Gaming. An innovative alternative to classroom learning.

Working with older FE and SEN students

Foundation Learning students enjoyed a fun session led by Nigel from Imagination Gaming playing board games aimed at developing communication, literacy and numeracy skills.

It was great to see staff and students talking, laughing, concentrating and embracing their competitive side with no electronic devices in sight.

Maybe we should all take something positive from this and play a board game at home tonight!
