About the Braille course
The course is suitable for those who wish to follow a course with a final assessed component which demonstrates their level of competency in both reading and writing contracted Braille.
This course is assessed and marked by a Qualified Teacher of Vision Impairments from Positive Eye Ltd. It is not externally accredited
The course is taken as a distance learning module by participants
Participants complete 30 writing exercises set out in the Braille Primer to practice and when ready (but by the monthly deadline) complete a separate written exercise to demonstrate their learning. This exercise is written by Positive Eye for the professional to complete and hand in for marking.
At each stage a Braille Transcription exercise is also provided to the participants for completion
On completion of all exercises, participants take an End of Course Test in reading and writing Braille.
The test is devised and written by Positive Eye Ltd.
The test is marked by a Qualified Teacher of Visual Impairments
Cost of course
£370.00 full course inclusive of one End of Course Test
£70.00 End of course test only (written and reading test)
It enables us to gain a much deeper understanding of their experiences as the statements feel less threatening than an adult asking lots of questions, and the range of statements really help to explore lots of areas of school life which may otherwise be over-looked
