Learn with ESS is an initiative that uses ESS (Education, Sport and Speaking) based activities to provide a unique and interactive team cohesion experience whilst addressing stigmatised issues surrounding disability. Learn with ESS aims to change individual perceptions within society to reshape towards a more unified future for our current learners.
Within our program’s we offer:
Classroom based interactive session raising awareness of general disability, braille and in future BSL.
Sports hall based session which allow learners to experience unique Paralympic sports such as Blind Football and Goalball. These sports place emphasis on developing valuable skills such as teamwork, communication and orientation.
A motivational talk from an athlete or individual within the local community, acting both as a role model and source of inspiration for learners.
We would love to provide you with further information on our packages and in what ways we can tailor our services to suit your event, curriculum or other needs. Please do not hesitate to get in touch and acknowledgment of this email would be kindly appreciated.
