Would the children and young people you work with benefit from boosting their confidence and skills?

RNIB Northern Ireland’s Realise project offers one-to-one tuition for children and young people with vision impairment between 8 and 20 years old.

The project, which is funded by the Big Lottery Fund NI through its Empowering Young People programme, provides tuition in a variety of activities including swimming, music, ICT and flying lessons.

Realise aims to build children and young people’s confidence and equip them with the skills to transition between:

  • Primary and post primary education: one-to-one tuition in extra curricular activities; taster sessions in accessible technology.
  • Post primary and third level education: one-to-one careers support; one-to-one ICT support; confidence-building programme; participation in the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
  • Leaving education and moving into employment: one-to-one careers support; one-to-one support in assistive technology; confidence-building programme; participation in the Duke of Edinburgh Award; structured work placements.

Would you like to find out more, or book one-to-one tuition for one of your students if you are based in Northern Ireland? Contact Donna McNicholl from the Realise project on 0287 136 6060.
