17 Create resources in accessible fonts (most could be available in electronic format for easy access and adaptation) If printing handouts, use pastel coloured paper for everyone - this helps a learner with dyslexia and includes them the same as part of the rest of the group. If using pictures, ensure they represent all aspects of society Use a range of teaching styles to reach all learning styles Face your learners when speaking to them ANN GRAVELLS LTD www.anngravells.co.uk

19 Know about your organisation’s policies and procedures for dealing with your learners’ complaints. This should have been shared with learners during induction The policy should explain: –a definition of unacceptable behaviour –how learners can report bullying, harassment or any other forms of unacceptable behaviour –how you and the organisation will deal with unacceptable behaviour ANN GRAVELLS LTD www.anngravells.co.uk

20 Treat any complaints seriously, regardless of who brings them and investigate the complaint thoroughly Deal quickly and firmly with anyone who acts inappropriately Deal with matters informally and internally if possible. The solution may be as simple as pointing out to a learner the effect that their behaviour has on others and asking them to stop Mix learners during group activities so that everyone has the opportunity to work with others ANN GRAVELLS LTD www.anngravells.co.uk
